Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting
Perl is available with all the Linux shared hosting packages that we offer and you will be able to execute any .pl file which you upload within your account using the File Manager of the Control Panel or an FTP software. The aforementioned will enable you to create a site with all of the functions that you'd like your visitors to have, but PHP cannot supply. You will be able to execute a script either manually or automatically with a cron job. Our plans feature countless Perl modules that you're able to employ and you will see a full list in your hosting account in addition to the path that you need to use in your scripts, in order to be able to access these modules. In case you would like to execute a Perl/CGI script with a cron job yet your plan doesn't offer this option, you will be able to add as many cron jobs as you require via the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of the website hosting Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Perl is supported on all our servers, so in case you get a semi-dedicated server account from us, you'll be able to use any kind of custom-made or ready-made CGI script or another Perl-based web app without difficulty. To save you time and efforts, we've also included several thousand modules that you're able to employ. You will be able to see the path to the library in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and include any module within your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for instance, will need specific modules, so that they can work effectively. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, is possible in two ways - manually, when a visitor performs a certain action on your site, or automatically, if you set up a cron job from your account. In the second case, you can select the interval based on what your script will do and how often you'd like it to run - once every day, hour, minute, etc.
