Perl is a well-liked scripting language that's considered to be one of the most useful programming languages in the online world. It's feature-rich and it's used to generate various web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the alternative languages on the internet is its compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a certain job that can be included in a script by simply calling them which means that you're able to write just one line in your script to get a module executed, rather than having the entire code that's already a part of the module anyway. As Perl is compatible with various other languages and it features a lot of functions depending on what a particular application can do, it's used by a number of popular companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.

Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting

You're able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all of our Linux shared website hosting packages because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules present on our custom cloud website hosting platform in order to make sure that all dependencies for a custom or a pre-made script are there any time you need them. You're able to execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually from your site, or automatically through a cron job that will run a certain file on regular intervals. In case the package which you've picked doesn't come with cron jobs included, you're able to add as many as you need from the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You also need to ensure that the script file features the proper executable permissions. When you use our shared packages, you will be able to create a site with as many functions and features as you like.
