Perl is a very popular programming language, which is used to make various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be one of the most effective languages nowadays since it supports the usage of modules - tiny bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a specific task. The modules can save you time and effort and they will contribute to the quick speed of your sites because you'll be able to integrate only 1 line of program code to call a given module instead of using all the code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language generally 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's also employed on high-traffic sites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

You are able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually via your website, or automatically through a cron job which will run a certain file on regular intervals. If the plan that you've picked doesn't come with cron jobs included, you can easily include as many as you want through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Also, you have to make sure that the script file is provided with the needed executable permissions. When you use our shared packages, you're able to build a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.
