Perl is a well-known computer language, which is employed to build various web applications and CGI scripts. A number of programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient languages nowadays since it supports the usage of modules - small parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a certain task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they can contribute to the rapid speed of your websites since you are able to add only one line of code to call a particular module rather than using all the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-functional language most often used for scripts, but it has been used to generate numerous popular pieces of web software too, for instance 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'll be able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all of our cloud hosting plans because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our custom cloud hosting platform so as to make sure that all dependencies for a tailor-made or a ready-made script will be there whenever you need them. You can execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually through your website, or automatically through a cron job which will run a particular file regularly. In the event that the package which you've selected does not come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to add as many as you would like from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition, you need to ensure that the script file features the proper executable permissions. Using our shared plans, you can create a site with as many functions and features as you would like.
