Perl is a widespread programming language, that is employed to create various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers consider it to be one of the most effective languages out there because it supports the use of modules - compact bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a certain task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they can contribute to the quick speed of your websites as you can include only one line of code to call a specific module instead of using all the code for the process within your script. Perl is a universal programming language generally used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate a variety of popular pieces of web software as well, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Website Hosting
You're able to use CGI scripts and apps written in Perl with all our Linux website hosting because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules installed on our custom-made cloud website hosting platform so as to make sure that all the dependencies for a custom-made or a pre-made script will be there any time you need them. You can run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually through your site, or automatically by using a cron job that will run a particular file regularly. In the event that the package which you have picked doesn't come with cron jobs included, you are able to include as many as you need through the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Also, you have to make sure that the script file features the needed executable permissions. When you use our shared plans, you'll be able to create a website with as many functions and features as you like.
