Perl is a widespread computer language, that is employed to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers consider it to be one of the most practical programming languages nowadays since it supports the use of modules - tiny bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a specific task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they will contribute to the fast speed of your websites since you can add just a single line of code to call a particular module instead of using all of the program code for the task within your script. Perl is a versatile language often used for scripts, but it has been used to generate lots of popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all our Linux shared hosting because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules installed on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform in order to make sure that all of the dependencies for a tailor-made or a pre-made script will be there every time you need them. You'll be able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your website, or automatically using a cron job that will run a specific file on regular intervals. If the plan which you've selected does not come with cron jobs included, you are able to add as many as you need through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Also, you have to make sure that the script file has the right executable permissions. Using our shared packages, you are able to create a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.
