Perl is an effective programming language that is widely used for generating CGI scripts and many different web-based applications. Among its key advantages is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code that are employed to do numerous tasks and to extend the efficiency of a certain script without clogging it with unneeded lines of code. In other words, when five processess should be executed, you are able to use five lines of code to call each one of the modules instead of including a few hundred lines used to set up the actual modules within your script. Perl is very practical and it may be used for many different purposes, so a number 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 often used with other languages such as PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

You will be able to use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with all of our Linux hosting because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules installed on our tailor-made cloud website hosting platform to ensure that all of the dependencies for a tailor-made or a pre-made script will be there any time you need them. You can run a .pl file in two ways - either manually via your site, or automatically through a cron job that will run a specific file on regular intervals. In the event that the plan which you have bought does not come with cron jobs included, you're able to add as many as you want through the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You also have to ensure that the script file has the needed executable permissions. When you use our shared plans, you will be able to create a website with as many functions and features as you would like.
