Perl Scripting in Hosting
Perl is provided with all Linux hosting that we provide and you'll be able to execute any .pl file which you upload in your account using the File Manager of the Control Panel or an FTP program. The latter will allow you to create a website with all of the characteristics that you'd like your visitors to have, but PHP does not supply. You are able to execute a script either manually or automatically using a cron job. Our packages include numerous Perl modules that you are able to use and you'll see the complete list in your web hosting account in addition to the path that you have to use in your scripts, in order to be able to access these modules. If you'd like to execute a Perl/CGI script using a cron job however your package doesn't offer this option, you will be able to include as many cron jobs as you require from the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of your web hosting Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Perl is supported on all our servers, so when you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you can use any custom or ready-made CGI script or any other Perl-based web application without any difficulties. To save you time and efforts, we have also installed several thousand modules which you'll be able to use. You will be able to see the path to the library in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and include any module within your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for example, will need specific modules, so as to function effectively. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, can be done in two separate ways - manually, in case a website visitor does a particular action on your site, or automatically, if you create a cron job from your account. In the second case, you can select the interval according to what the script will do and how often you'd like it to run - once every day, hour, minute, etcetera.
