Perl is a well-known computer language, which is used to create various web applications and CGI scripts. A number of programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient languages these days as it supports the use of modules - tiny parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a particular task. The modules will save you lots of time and they can contribute to the quick speed of your sites because you'll be able to include only one line of program code to call a particular module instead of using all of the code for the process in your script. Perl is a universal programming language normally used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate a lot of popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
Perl is provided with all of the cloud packages that we supply and you can execute any type of .pl file that you upload in your account using the File Manager of the Control Panel or an FTP software. The aforementioned will help you make an Internet site with all the characteristics that you would like your visitors to have, but PHP can't supply. You'll be able to execute a script either manually or automatically with a cron job. Our plans feature lots of Perl modules that you are able to use and you'll see the full list in your website hosting account along with the path that you need to include in your scripts, in order to be able to access these modules. If you wish to execute a Perl/CGI script with a cron job yet your plan doesn't offer this feature, you'll be able to include as many cron jobs as you need through the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of the hosting Control Panel.
