Perl is a popular language, which is used to build various web applications and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be among the most efficient programming languages these days since it supports the usage of modules - compact parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a particular task. The modules can save you a lot of time and they can contribute to the rapid speed of your sites as you'll be able to add only 1 line of program code to call a specific module instead of using all the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a versatile language most often used for scripts, but it has been used to generate a variety of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Hosting
You're able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with any of our Linux hosting
as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform so as to ensure that all of the dependencies for a custom-made or a pre-made script will be there every time you need them. You're able to run a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your website, or automatically by using a cron job that will run a certain file regularly. If the package which you have bought does not come with cron jobs included, you will be able to include as many as you would like from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Also, you need to make sure that the script file has the right executable permissions. Using our shared packages, you're able to create a site with as many functions and features as you would like.
