Perl is a powerful programming language that's frequently used for generating CGI scripts as well as a number of web-based apps. Among its major pros is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code which are designed to do numerous tasks and to increase the efficiency of a given script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of code. In other words, in the event that five tasks have to be performed, you can employ five lines of program code to call each one of the modules instead of adding hundreds of lines used to generate the actual modules in your script. Perl is really practical and it may be used for numerous purposes, that's why many corporations have implemented it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is often used in addition to other programming languages like PHP or Python.
Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with any of our Linux shared website hosting packages because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules installed on our custom cloud website hosting platform so as to make sure that all dependencies for a custom or a ready-made script are there when you need them. You will be able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually through your site, or automatically via a cron job which will run a particular file on regular intervals. In the event that the plan which you've bought doesn't come with cron jobs included, you're able to include as many as you would like through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You also have to ensure that the script file features the proper executable permissions. Using our shared plans, you're able to create a site with as many functions and features as you would like.
