Perl is a widely used programming language, which is employed to set up various web applications and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers believe that it is one of the most efficient languages out there as it supports the usage of modules - compact pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to execute a specific task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they will contribute to the quick speed of your sites since you'll be able to add just one line of code to call a specific module instead of using all the code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language primarily used for scripts, but it has been used to generate a lot of popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting

You're able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with any of our shared website hosting as we have a rich library of over 3000 modules on our custom-made cloud website hosting platform so as to make sure that all the dependencies for a tailor-made or a ready-made script will be there when you need them. You are able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually via your site, or automatically through a cron job that will run a particular file regularly. If the package that you have bought does not come with cron jobs included, you can easily add as many as you would like through the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Also, you need to ensure that the script file is provided with the right executable permissions. When you use our shared packages, you'll be able to create a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.
