Perl is a very popular programming language, that is used to build various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is one of the most efficient programming languages out there because it supports the use of modules - small pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to execute a particular task. The modules can save you a lot of time and they can contribute to the fast loading speed of your sites since you can include just a single line of program code to call a certain module rather than using all of the code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language generally used for scripts, but it's been used to create a number of popular pieces of web software as well, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting

You're able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all our Linux shared website hosting because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules installed on our custom cloud hosting platform in order to ensure that all of the dependencies for a custom or a ready-made script are there when you need them. You'll be able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your website, or automatically by using a cron job that will run a particular file on regular intervals. In the event that the plan that you have acquired does not come with cron jobs included, you can easily add as many as you want through the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. In addition, you need to ensure that the script file features the proper executable permissions. When you use our shared packages, you're able to create a website with as many functions and features as you like.
