Perl is a widespread scripting language that is considered to be one of the most practical languages in the online world. It's feature-rich and it's used to generate multiple web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages on the web is its compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a specific task which can be integrated into a script by calling them i.e. you're able to write just a single line within your script to have an entire module executed, instead of having the whole program code which is already a part of the module anyway. Because Perl is compatible with a lot of other programming languages and it provides a lot of options depending on what a specific app can do, it's used by numerous popular companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

You can use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all our Linux cloud hosting as we have a rich library of over 3000 modules installed on our custom cloud website hosting platform to make sure that all dependencies for a tailor-made or a ready-made script will be there whenever you need them. You'll be able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually from your website, or automatically using a cron job that will run a certain file regularly. If the package which you've selected doesn't come with cron jobs included, you can easily include as many as you want through the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You also need to make sure that the script file has the proper executable permissions. When you use our shared plans, you will be able to create a site with as many functions and features as you like.
