Perl is a powerful programming language which is regularly used for setting up CGI scripts and also various kinds of web-based apps. One of its major pros is the fact that it supports modules - ready-made batches of code which are designed to perform various tasks and to enhance the effectiveness of a certain script without slowing it with unneeded lines of program code. To put it simply, in the event that five tasks have to be executed, you are able to use five lines of code in order to call each of the modules instead of adding hundreds of lines used to set up the actual modules within your script. Perl is very convenient and it may be used for various purposes, so a wide range of corporations have implemented it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is often used with other programming languages like PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

You're able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all our Linux cloud hosting as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform to ensure that all of the dependencies for a custom or a pre-made script are there whenever you need them. You can run a .pl file in two ways - either manually from your website, or automatically by using a cron job which will run a specific file regularly. In the event that the package which you have obtained doesn't come with cron jobs included, you're able to include as many as you need through the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. You also have to make sure that the script file features the proper executable permissions. With our shared plans, you'll be able to create a website with as many functions and features as you like.
