Perl is a widely used scripting language that is regarded as one of the most practical programming languages on the Internet. It is feature-rich and it's used to create a variety of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the market is the support for modules - groups of commands for a specific job which can be included in a script by calling them which means that you can write only one line within your script to have a whole module executed, rather than having the entire program code which is already included in the module anyway. Since Perl can be used with a lot of other languages and it comes with a lot of options depending on what a specific app can do, it's used by lots of well-known companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.

Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting

You'll be able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with any of our Linux shared web hosting packages because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules present on our custom-made cloud website hosting platform so as to ensure that all dependencies for a custom or a pre-made script are there when you need them. You will be able to run a .pl file in two ways - either manually from your site, or automatically by using a cron job which will run a particular file regularly. In case the plan which you have picked does not come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to add as many as you would like from the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Also, you have to ensure that the script file is provided with the proper executable permissions. With our shared packages, you will be able to create a website with as many functions and features as you would like.
