Perl is a very popular computer language, that is employed to build various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers consider it to be among the most practical languages these days as it supports the usage of modules - compact pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to execute a particular task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they can contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites as you'll be able to add just one line of program code to call a particular module instead of using all of the code for the process within your script. Perl is a universal programming language primarily used for scripts, but it's been employed to create a variety of popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

You are able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually via your website, or automatically by using a cron job which will run a particular file regularly. If the plan which you've bought does not come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to add as many as you want from the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to ensure that the script file is provided with the needed executable permissions. Using our shared plans, you will be able to build a site with as many functions and features as you would like.
