Perl is an efficient programming language that's widely used for making CGI scripts and also many different web-based applications. Among its main advantages is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code which are designed to do multiple tasks and to increase the efficiency of a given script without slowing it with unneeded lines of program code. This means that, if five tasks need to be executed, you are able to use five lines of code to call each one of the modules rather than including a few hundred lines used to generate the actual modules within your script. Perl is really handy and it may be used for various purposes, that's why a lot of corporations have integrated it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is commonly used with other programming languages for example PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting

You can use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with any of our Linux shared website hosting packages because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our custom-made cloud website hosting platform so as to make sure that all the dependencies for a custom-made or a pre-made script will be there any time you need them. You'll be able to execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually from your website, or automatically via a cron job which will run a particular file on regular intervals. In the event that the plan which you've ordered does not come with cron jobs included, you are able to include as many as you would like from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. In addition, you need to make sure that the script file has the needed executable permissions. When you use our shared packages, you're able to create a website with as many functions and features as you like.
