Perl is a well-known computer language, that is employed to make various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers consider it to be one of the most effective programming languages available since it supports the usage of modules - small bits of code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a specific task. The modules can save you time and effort and they can contribute to the fast loading speed of your sites since you will be able to integrate just one line of program code to call a specific module instead of using all the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-functional language often used for scripts, but it has been employed to create a wide range of popular pieces of web software as well, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting

You're able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all our Linux shared web hosting as we have a rich library of over 3000 modules on our custom cloud hosting platform so as to make sure that all dependencies for a custom or a pre-made script will be there when you need them. You'll be able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually from your website, or automatically through a cron job which will run a certain file on regular intervals. If the package which you have acquired does not come with cron jobs included, you are able to add as many as you want from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. You also have to make sure that the script file is provided with the proper executable permissions. When you use our shared packages, you're able to create a site with as many functions and features as you like.
