Perl is a widely used scripting language that is considered to be one of the most practical languages on the Internet. It is feature-rich and it's used to set up various web-based apps and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages on the web is its support for modules - groups of commands for a particular task that can be integrated into a script by calling them which means that you're able to write just a single line within your script to have a whole module executed, rather than having the whole program code that's already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl can be used with various other programming languages and it provides a lot of options based on what a specific application can do, it's employed by many well-known companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.
Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with any of our shared web hosting as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our custom-made cloud website hosting platform so as to make sure that all the dependencies for a tailor-made or a pre-made script will be there whenever you need them. You will be able to execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually through your website, or automatically via a cron job that will run a particular file regularly. In the event that the package that you've acquired does not come with cron jobs included, you're able to add as many as you need from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You also have to ensure that the script file has the proper executable permissions. With our shared plans, you are able to build a website with as many functions and features as you like.
