Perl is a popular programming language, that is employed to make various web apps and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient languages out there since it supports the usage of modules - tiny bits of code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a certain task. The modules will save you time and effort and they will contribute to the fast speed of your sites because you'll be able to integrate just a single line of code to call a specific module instead of using all of the code for the task within your script. Perl is a versatile programming language often used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate a wide range of popular pieces of web software as well, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

You're able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually from your site, or automatically via a cron job that will run a specific file on regular intervals. In the event that the plan that you've obtained doesn't come with cron jobs included, you will be able to include as many as you would like from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia website 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 create a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.
