Perl is a widespread scripting language which is regarded as one of the most practical programming languages in the online world. It's feature-rich and it's used to generate various web-based apps and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages on the market is the support for modules - groups of commands for a particular job which can be included in a script by calling them i.e. you're able to write only one line in your script to have an entire module executed, rather than having the whole program code that's already a part of the module anyway. Because Perl can be used with many other programming languages and it comes with a lot of options based on what a specific application can do, it's employed by many popular companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.

You will be able to run a .pl file in two ways - either manually from your website, or automatically through a cron job that will run a specific file on regular intervals. In the event that the plan that you've bought does not come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to include as many as you want from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. In addition, you need to make sure that the script file features the proper executable permissions. With our shared packages, you are able to build a website with as many functions and features as you would like.
