Perl is a widespread scripting language that is considered to be one of the most useful languages on the web. It's feature-rich and it's used to generate various web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages out there is the support for modules - groups of commands for a particular job that can be integrated into a script by calling them which means that you're able to write just one line within your script to get an entire module executed, rather than having the whole code that is already a part of the module anyway. As Perl is compatible with various other programming languages and it features a lot of options depending on what a given application can do, it is employed by a number of well-known companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

You are able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with any of our shared hosting because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules installed on our tailor-made cloud website hosting platform in order to ensure that all the dependencies for a custom or a pre-made script are there any time you need them. You are able to run a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your site, or automatically through a cron job which will run a certain file regularly. In the event that the plan that you've ordered does not come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to add as many as you would like through the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to make sure that the script file has the proper executable permissions. When you use our shared packages, you are able to build a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.
