Perl is a well-known scripting language which is regarded as being one of the most practical languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it is used to set up multiple web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages out there is the compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a specific process which can be integrated into a script by calling them which means that you are able to write a single line inside your script to get a whole module executed, instead of having the whole code that is already included in the module anyway. Because Perl supports many other languages and it provides a lot of functions depending on what a given application can do, it is used by lots of renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

You'll be able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all our Linux cloud plans because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform in order to ensure that all of the dependencies for a custom or a pre-made script will be there any time you need them. You're able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your website, or automatically through a cron job which will run a certain file on regular intervals. In case the package which you've selected does not come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to include as many as you want from the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition, you need to make sure that the script file has the needed executable permissions. When you use our shared plans, you can create a site with as many functions and features as you would like.
