Perl is a very popular language, that is used to create various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers believe that it is one of the most effective programming languages nowadays since it supports the usage of modules - small pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a certain task. The modules will save you time and effort and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites since you'll be able to include only one line of code to call a particular module instead of using all the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile language most often used for scripts, but it has been used to generate a number of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with any of our hosting because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules installed on our custom 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 run a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your site, or automatically through a cron job which will run a particular file regularly. In case the package which you've acquired does not come with cron jobs included, you're able to add as many as you would like from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You also have to ensure that the script file is provided with the needed executable permissions. Using our shared packages, you're able to build a site with as many functions and features as you like.
