Perl is a widely used scripting language that is considered to be one of the most practical programming languages on the web. It's feature-rich and it's used to set up various web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages on the market is its support for modules - sets of commands for a particular job that can be integrated into a script by simply calling them i.e. you can write a single line within your script to get a whole module executed, instead of having the entire program code that is already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl supports a lot of other languages and it comes with a lot of functions based on what a specific app can do, it's employed by lots of renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with any of our cloud plans as we have a rich library of over 3000 modules installed on our custom cloud website hosting platform to ensure that all the dependencies for a tailor-made or a pre-made script will be there every time you need them. You'll be able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your site, or automatically through a cron job which will run a particular file regularly. In case the plan which you have bought does not 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. In addition, you need to ensure that the script file is provided with the needed executable permissions. With our shared plans, you can create a website with as many functions and features as you would like.
