Perl is a widespread computer language, that is employed to make various web apps and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers believe that it is among the most practical programming languages available since it supports the use of modules - small bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to perform a certain task. The modules can save you a lot of time and they can contribute to the quick speed of your websites because you will be able to add only 1 line of code to call a certain module rather than using all of the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a versatile language most often used for scripts, but it's been used to generate lots of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to use CGI scripts and apps written in Perl with all of our Linux cloud hosting packages as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules installed on our custom cloud website hosting platform to ensure that all dependencies for a custom or a pre-made script will be there every time you need them. You can execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually from your website, or automatically by using a cron job which will run a particular file regularly. If the package that you have purchased does not come with cron jobs included, you're able to add as many as you would like from the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to make sure that the script file features the needed executable permissions. When you use our shared packages, you can build a site with as many functions and features as you like.
