Perl is a widely used computer language, which is used to make various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers believe that it is one of the most effective programming languages out there as it supports the usage of modules - compact bits of code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a particular task. The modules can save you lots of time and they will contribute to the fast loading speed of your sites as you can integrate only one line of code to call a particular module rather than using all of the code for the task within your script. Perl is a versatile programming language normally used for scripts, but it's been used to create numerous popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

You are able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all our Linux cloud packages as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules installed on our custom-made cloud website hosting platform so as to make sure that all the dependencies for a custom or a ready-made script are there any time you need them. You're able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually via your site, or automatically through a cron job which will run a particular file on regular intervals. If the package which you've picked doesn't come with cron jobs included, you will be able to add as many as you want through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Also, you need to ensure that the script file is provided with the right executable permissions. With our shared packages, you are able to create a site with as many functions and features as you like.
