Perl is an efficient programming language that is regularly used for making CGI scripts and various web-based applications. Among its key pros is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code which are designed to perform a variety of tasks and to increase the performance of a certain script without clogging it with unneeded lines of code. This means that, if five jobs have to be performed, you'll be able to use five lines of code in order to call each of the modules rather than adding hundreds of lines used to generate the actual modules inside your script. Perl is very handy and it may be used for various purposes, so a number of corporations have implemented it in their web products or on their resource-demanding sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It's generally used with other programming languages for example PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

You're able to use CGI scripts and apps written in Perl with all our Linux cloud web hosting as we have a rich library of over 3000 modules present on our custom-made cloud hosting platform in order to make sure that all the dependencies for a custom or a pre-made script are there whenever you need them. You'll be able to run a .pl file in two ways - either manually via your website, or automatically through a cron job which will run a specific file on regular intervals. In the event that the package which you have acquired does not come with cron jobs included, you can easily include as many as you need through the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. In addition, you need to ensure that the script file is provided with the proper executable permissions. With our shared packages, you can build a site with as many functions and features as you'd like.
