Perl is a very popular scripting language which is regarded as one of the most useful programming languages on the Internet. It is feature-rich and it is used to set up multiple web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages on the market is its compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a certain task that can be included in a script just by calling them i.e. you're able to write a single line within your script to have a whole module executed, instead of having the whole code which is already a part of the module anyway. Because Perl supports many other languages and it features a lot of options depending on what a specific app can do, it's employed by numerous well-known companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

You'll be able to use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with all of our cloud hosting because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules installed on our tailor-made cloud website hosting platform to ensure that all dependencies for a custom-made or a pre-made script are there every time you need them. You are able to execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually from your site, or automatically by using a cron job which will run a certain file on regular intervals. In case the plan that you have obtained does not come with cron jobs included, you are able to include as many as you want from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Also, you have to ensure that the script file is provided with the proper executable permissions. With our shared plans, you're able to build a site with as many functions and features as you would like.
