Perl is a powerful programming language which is widely used for making CGI scripts as well as various kinds of web-based applications. One of its major advantages is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code that are used to do various tasks and to extend the functionality of a certain script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of code. In other words, in the event that five tasks should be performed, you can use five lines of code to call each one of the modules rather than adding a large number of lines used to generate the actual modules in your script. Perl is very practical and it may be used for multiple purposes, so a lot of companies have implemented it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It's often used in addition to other languages for instance PHP or Python.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all of our Linux cloud hosting as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our custom cloud website hosting platform to ensure that all the dependencies for a custom-made or a pre-made script will be there any time you need them. You'll be able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your website, or automatically by using a cron job that will run a specific file regularly. If the package which you've obtained doesn't come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to include as many as you would like through the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Also, you need to ensure that the script file features the proper executable permissions. With our shared packages, you can build a site with as many functions and features as you like.
