Perl is a powerful programming language which is regularly used for generating CGI scripts as well as a variety of web-based applications. Among its major pros is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code that are designed to do numerous tasks and to increase the efficiency of a certain script without slowing it with unneeded lines of code. To put it simply, if five jobs should be executed, you can employ five lines of program code in order to call each of the modules rather than adding hundreds of lines used to create the actual modules inside your script. Perl is very useful and it may be used for a number of purposes, so a lot of corporations have implemented it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It is often used with other programming languages such as PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

You can use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with any of our shared plans because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules present on our custom cloud website hosting platform in order to ensure that all dependencies for a custom-made or a ready-made script will be there every time you need them. You'll be able to run a .pl file in two ways - either manually from your website, or automatically by using a cron job which will run a particular file on regular intervals. In case the plan that you have picked doesn't come with cron jobs included, you can easily add as many as you would like through the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You also need to ensure that the script file has the needed executable permissions. When you use our shared packages, you are able to create a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.
