Perl is an excellent programming language that is commonly used for generating CGI scripts and also different web-based apps. Among its main advantages is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code which are used to do numerous tasks and to increase the performance of a certain script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of program code. This means that, in the event that five tasks have to be performed, you're able to use five lines of program code to call each one of the modules instead of adding a large number of lines used to set up the actual modules inside your script. Perl is very convenient and it can be used for many different purposes, that's why many corporations have implemented it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It's ordinarily used along with other programming languages like PHP or Python.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting
You can use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with all our cloud website hosting plans as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules on our custom-made cloud hosting platform so as to make sure that all dependencies for a custom-made or a pre-made script will be there when you need them. You're able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually via your website, or automatically using a cron job which will run a specific file regularly. In the event that the plan that you have ordered does not come with cron jobs included, you are able to add as many as you would like from the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Also, you need to ensure that the script file has the proper executable permissions. Using our shared packages, you are able to build a site with as many functions and features as you'd like.
