Why is Perl a programming language picked for numerous developers?
Perl is a sought-after scripting language which is considered to be one of the most practical programming languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it's used to generate various web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the alternative languages on the market is the support for modules - sets of commands for a particular task which can be integrated into a script just by calling them i.e. you can write just one line within your script to get a module executed, rather than having the whole code that is already included in the module anyway. As Perl is compatible with many other programming languages and it provides a lot of options depending on what a given application can do, it's employed by numerous famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting
You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all of our cloud web hosting plans because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules present on our custom cloud website hosting platform so as to ensure that all the dependencies for a custom-made or a ready-made script are there when you need them. You are able to execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually via your website, or automatically through a cron job which will run a specific file regularly. If the package which you have selected does not come with cron jobs included, you are able to include as many as you need from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You also have to make sure that the script file features the needed executable permissions. When you use our shared packages, you will be able to build a site with as many functions and features as you like.
