Perl is a sought-after scripting language that is considered to be one of the most useful programming languages on the Internet. It is feature-rich and it's used to generate multiple web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages on the market is the support for modules - groups of commands for a specific process that can be included in a script by simply calling them i.e. you'll be able to write just a single line within your script to get an entire module executed, rather than having the entire program code which is already included in the module anyway. Because Perl can be used with various other languages and it comes with a lot of options based on what a given application can do, it's employed by a number of famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
You'll be able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with any of our cloud plans because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules on our custom-made cloud website hosting platform to ensure that all the dependencies for a custom or a ready-made script are there whenever you need them. You'll be able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually through your website, or automatically through a cron job which will run a specific file regularly. In case the plan that you have acquired does not come with cron jobs included, you will be able to add as many as you want from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Also, you have to make sure that the script file is provided with the right executable permissions. Using our shared packages, you can create a website with as many functions and features as you would like.
