Perl Scripting in Website Hosting
Perl is available with all of the website hosting that we provide and you're able to execute any type of .pl file which you upload in your account using the File Manager of the Control Panel or an FTP program. The aforementioned will allow you to make a site with all of the options that you'd like your visitors to have, but PHP doesn't provide. You are able to execute a script either manually or automatically through a cron job. Our plans include thousands of Perl modules which you can use and you can see the complete list in your web hosting account along with the path that you need to include in your scripts, so as to be able to access these modules. In case you want to execute a Perl/CGI script using a cron job yet your package doesn't offer this option, you can 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 Servers
Perl is supported on all of our servers, so when you buy a semi-dedicated server account through us, you will be able to use any custom-made or ready-made CGI script or other Perl-based web application without difficulty. To save your time and efforts, we've also installed several thousand modules that you are able to take advantage of. You can see the path to the library inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and add any module in your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for example, need particular modules, in order to function effectively. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, is possible in two separate ways - manually, in case a website visitor does a particular action on your website, or automatically, when you create a cron job through your account. In the second case, you'll be able to choose the interval depending on what your script will do and how often you'd like it to run - once every minute, hour, day, etcetera.
