Perl is a well-known programming language, which is employed to make various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is one of the most efficient languages in existence since it supports the use of modules - small parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to perform a particular task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they will contribute to the quick speed of your websites as you'll be able to include only 1 line of program code to call a particular module rather than using all the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language primarily used for scripts, but it has been employed to create lots of popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting

You are able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with any of our shared web hosting plans as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our custom cloud hosting platform in order to ensure that all of the dependencies for a custom-made or a ready-made script are there when you need them. You'll be able to execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually through your website, or automatically through a cron job which will run a certain file on regular intervals. If the plan which you have ordered does not come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to include as many as you would like from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. In addition, you need to make sure that the script file is provided with the needed executable permissions. When you use our shared plans, you can build a website with as many functions and features as you like.
