Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting
Perl is available with all the Linux shared website hosting packages that we supply and you'll be able to execute any type of .pl file which you upload inside your account when you use the File Manager of the Control Panel or an FTP program. The aforementioned will enable you to make a site with all the options that you would like your visitors to have, but PHP cannot offer. You can execute a script either manually or automatically through a cron job. Our plans include numerous Perl modules that you're able to employ and you will see the complete list in your website hosting account along with the path which you should include in your scripts, to be able to access these modules. In case you want to execute a Perl/CGI script through a cron job yet your plan does not offer this feature, you are able to add as many cron jobs as you need through the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of your website hosting Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Perl is supported on all of our servers, so if you buy a semi-dedicated server account from us, you're able to use any custom-made or ready-made CGI script or any other Perl-based web app without any difficulties. To save you time and efforts, we've also included several thousand modules which you're able to employ. You can see the path to the library inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and include any module within your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for example, require particular modules, so as to operate efficiently. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, can be achieved in two separate ways - manually, in case a visitor performs a certain action on your website, or automatically, when you set up a cron job from your account. In the second case, you're able to select the interval according to what your script will do and how often you want it to run - once every day, hour, minute, etc.
