Perl is a very popular language, that is employed to build various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient languages these days because it supports the use of modules - small pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to execute a specific task. The modules will save you lots of time and they will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your sites because you're able to include just a single line of program code to call a particular module rather than using all the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a versatile language most often used for scripts, but it's been employed to create numerous popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
You can use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with any of our cloud hosting plans as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our custom cloud website hosting platform in order to make sure that all the dependencies for a tailor-made or a ready-made script will be there when you need them. You can execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your site, or automatically through a cron job which will run a specific file on regular intervals. If the package that you've bought does not come with cron jobs included, you can easily add as many as you need through the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. In addition, you need to ensure that the script file has the right executable permissions. With our shared plans, you are able to build a website with as many functions and features as you would like.
