Perl is a widely used language, which is used to make various web applications and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be among the most effective languages available as it supports the usage of modules - compact bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to perform a specific task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they will contribute to the rapid speed of your websites because you are able to integrate just one line of program code to call a particular module instead of using all the code for the task within your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language normally used for scripts, but it has been used to create lots of popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

Perl is provided with all the Linux cloud packages that we offer and you can execute any .pl file which you upload inside your account thanks to the File Manager of the Control Panel or an FTP program. The latter will enable you to make an Internet site with all of the options that you would like your visitors to have, but PHP does not supply. You're able to execute a script either manually or automatically through a cron job. Our plans feature thousands of Perl modules that you'll be able to employ and you can see the complete list in your website hosting account as well as the path that you need to include in your scripts, so as to be able to access these modules. If you wish to execute a Perl/CGI script with a cron job but your plan doesn't offer this option, you're able to add as many cron jobs as you require from the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of your website hosting Control Panel.
