Perl is an excellent programming language that's frequently used for generating CGI scripts and also a variety of web-based applications. Among its major advantages is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of code which are designed to do various tasks and to increase the efficiency of a certain script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of code. This means that, in the event that five jobs should be performed, you can use five lines of program code in order to call each of the modules rather than adding a couple of hundred lines used to create the actual modules within your script. Perl is really handy and it may be used for various purposes, that's why many corporations have integrated it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It is often used in addition to other programming languages for instance PHP or Python.
Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting
You can use CGI scripts and apps written in Perl with all of our shared hosting because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules on our custom-made cloud website hosting platform so as to make sure that all the dependencies for a tailor-made or a pre-made script are there every time you need them. You can run a .pl file in two ways - either manually via your site, or automatically through a cron job that will run a particular file on regular intervals. If the plan which you've purchased does not come with cron jobs included, you will be able to add as many as you would like from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition, you need to make sure that the script file features the needed executable permissions. When you use our shared plans, you are able to build a site with as many functions and features as you like.
