Perl is a sought-after scripting language which is regarded as being one of the most practical languages in the online world. It's feature-rich and it's used to generate a number of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages on the internet is its compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a particular process that can be included in a script by simply calling them i.e. you can write just one line within your script to have a module executed, rather than having the entire code that is 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 app can do, it's used by a number of famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

You'll be able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all our Linux cloud website hosting packages because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules installed on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform to ensure that all of the dependencies for a tailor-made or a pre-made script will be there when you need them. You'll be able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually via your website, or automatically using a cron job that will run a particular file regularly. If the package that you have selected doesn't come with cron jobs included, you can easily include as many as you would like from the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. In addition, you need to ensure that the script file has the right executable permissions. With our shared packages, you will be able to build a site with as many functions and features as you would like.
