Perl is a well-known language, which is employed to set up various web applications and CGI scripts. A number of programmers believe that it is among the most efficient programming languages available as it supports the usage of modules - small bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to perform a certain task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they can contribute to the fast loading speed of your sites because you will be able to integrate just a single line of program code to call a given module instead of using all the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a versatile language normally used for scripts, but it has been used to generate lots of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Website Hosting

You'll be able to use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with all our Linux website hosting as we have a rich library of over 3000 modules present on our custom cloud website hosting platform to make sure that all of the dependencies for a custom or a ready-made script are there any time you need them. You can execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your website, or automatically by using a cron job that will run a certain file on regular intervals. In case the package that you've ordered doesn't come with cron jobs included, you are able to add as many as you would like from the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Also, you need to make sure that the script file is provided with the right executable permissions. With our shared packages, you will be able to build a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.
