Perl is a very popular language, that is employed to create various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers believe that it is among the most efficient programming languages out there since it supports the usage of modules - compact bits of code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to execute a certain task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites because you will be able to include just a single line of program code to call a given module rather than using all the code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile language often used for scripts, but it's been employed to create a variety of popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting
You're able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all our Linux cloud web hosting packages
because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules present on our custom cloud hosting platform so as to make sure that all the dependencies for a custom-made or a pre-made script are there whenever you need them. You're able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually via your site, or automatically via a cron job that will run a particular file on regular intervals. In the event that the plan that you've purchased doesn't come with cron jobs included, you can easily include as many as you need through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Also, you have to ensure that the script file is provided with the needed executable permissions. Using our shared plans, you'll be able to create a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.

Provided you decide to employ a script that you've found online and it requires certain modules to to exist on the server, you'll be able to take advantage of our rich library that includes over 3000 modules. In this way, you can be sure that any Perl application that you make or find on the web will perform perfectly on our end.
