Perl is an effective programming language that's regularly used for generating CGI scripts along with different web-based apps. Among its main pros is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code which are employed to perform a variety of tasks and to increase the functionality of a given script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of program code. To put it simply, if five processess have to be executed, you're able to use five lines of code to call each one of the modules instead of including a few hundred lines used to generate the actual modules in your script. Perl is very practical and it may be used for many different purposes, that's why a wide range of companies have integrated it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It is commonly used with other programming languages for example PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

You are able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all of our shared packages as we have a rich library of over 3000 modules present on our custom cloud hosting platform to ensure that all of the dependencies for a custom-made or a pre-made script are there any time you need them. You will be able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually via your website, or automatically via a cron job which will run a certain file regularly. If the package that you've selected does not come with cron jobs included, you can easily add as many as you want from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Also, you have to make sure that the script file has the proper executable permissions. Using our shared packages, you will be able to build a site with as many functions and features as you like.
