Perl is an effective programming language that's frequently used for making CGI scripts along with a variety of web-based applications. One of its major advantages is the fact that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code that are employed to execute numerous tasks and to extend the functionality of a given script without clogging it with unneeded lines of program code. In other words, when five processess need to be performed, you'll be able to employ five lines of code in order to call each one of the modules rather than adding a large number of lines used to generate the actual modules inside your script. Perl is very convenient and it may be used for multiple purposes, that's why many companies have implemented it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is often used along with other programming languages such as PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

You'll be able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all of our Linux shared services because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our custom-made cloud website hosting platform to ensure that all the dependencies for a custom or a pre-made script are there when you need them. You'll be able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually via your site, or automatically by using a cron job that will run a specific file on regular intervals. In case the plan which you have purchased doesn't come with cron jobs included, you can easily add as many as you want from the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Also, you have to ensure that the script file is provided with the proper executable permissions. With our shared packages, you will be able to build a site with as many functions and features as you'd like.
