Perl is an effective programming language that is widely used for setting up CGI scripts as well as a number of web-based applications. Among its key advantages is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code which are employed to perform various tasks and to increase the effectiveness of a given script without clogging it with unneeded lines of program code. This means that, in the event that five tasks have to be executed, you are able to employ five lines of program code to call each of the modules instead of adding a large number of lines used to set up the actual modules inside your script. Perl is really handy and it can be used for a variety of purposes, that's why many corporations have integrated it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It's ordinarily used in addition to other programming languages for example PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

You will be able to use CGI scripts and apps written in Perl with all our shared hosting because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform so as to make sure that all dependencies for a custom or a ready-made script will be there whenever you need them. You are able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your website, or automatically via a cron job that will run a specific file regularly. If the plan that you've picked doesn't come with cron jobs included, you are able to add as many as you need from the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You also need to make sure that the script file features the right executable permissions. With our shared plans, you're able to build a site with as many functions and features as you'd like.
