Perl is an efficient programming language which is frequently used for creating CGI scripts and various kinds of web-based applications. Among its key advantages is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code which are employed to do a variety of tasks and to increase the performance of a given script without clogging it with unneeded lines of code. This means that, in the event that five tasks should be executed, you're able to employ five lines of code in order to call each of the modules rather than including a couple of hundred lines used to create the actual modules in your script. Perl is really practical and it may be used for a number of purposes, that's why a wide range of corporations have integrated it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is commonly used in addition to other languages for example PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

You'll be able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with any of our shared hosting because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our custom cloud website hosting platform to ensure that all the dependencies for a custom-made or a pre-made script will be there any time you need them. You can run a .pl file in two ways - either manually from your website, or automatically via a cron job which will run a certain file regularly. In the event that the package which you've bought doesn't come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to add as many as you would like through the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. In addition, you need to ensure that the script file features the right executable permissions. When you use our shared plans, you'll be able to create a site with as many functions and features as you would like.
