Perl Scripting in Web Hosting
Perl is provided with all the web hosting packages that we offer and you can execute any .pl file that you upload in your account thanks to the File Manager of the Control Panel or an FTP program. The aforementioned will allow you to make an Internet site with all the characteristics that you would like your visitors to have, but PHP does not provide. You will be able to execute a script either manually or automatically using a cron job. Our packages include numerous Perl modules that you can use and you can see the complete list in your hosting account along with the path that you should include in your scripts, so as to be able to access these modules. If you'd like to execute a Perl/CGI script through a cron job however your package 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 website hosting Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or various other apps written in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are featured in all the packages, you'll be able to select if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. You can also use a huge library of more than 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functionality in order to save time when you write your scripts. In the event that you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs a specific module to function effectively, we will have it as our library contains both widely used modules and less popular ones. You are able to find the path to the modules that you need to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
