Perl is a well-known scripting language which is regarded as one of the most practical languages on the Internet. It is feature-rich and it is used to set up a number of web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages out there is the support for modules - groups of commands for a certain job which can be included in a script by simply calling them i.e. you're able to write a single line in your script to have a whole module executed, instead of having the entire code that's already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl is compatible with a lot of other programming languages and it provides a lot of functions depending on what a given app can do, it is used by numerous renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

You'll be able to use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with any of our Linux cloud web hosting services because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules installed on our tailor-made cloud website hosting platform to make sure that all of the dependencies for a custom or a ready-made script will be there whenever you need them. You'll be able to run a .pl file in two ways - either manually via your website, or automatically via a cron job which will run a specific file on regular intervals. If the plan that you have ordered doesn't come with cron jobs included, you're able to include as many as you need from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Also, you need to ensure that the script file features the needed executable permissions. When you use our shared packages, you'll be able to build a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.
