Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting
Perl is available with all the Linux cloud website hosting plans that we provide and you will be able to execute any kind of .pl file that you upload in your account using the File Manager of the Control Panel or some FTP program. The latter will allow you to create a website with all of the options that you'd like your visitors to have, but PHP doesn't provide. You're able to execute a script either manually or automatically with a cron job. Our packages feature countless Perl modules that you'll be able to use and you'll see the full list in your web hosting account in addition to the path that you should use in your scripts, so as to be able to access these modules. In case you wish to execute a Perl/CGI script using a cron job however your plan doesn't offer this feature, you can add as many cron jobs as you need through the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of the hosting Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
Perl is supported on all our servers, so in case you purchase a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you will be able to use any kind of custom-made or ready-made CGI script or any other Perl-based web application without difficulty. To save you time and effort, we have also set up several thousand modules which you'll be able to take advantage of. You will be able to see the path to the library inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and add any module within your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for instance, need specific modules, to function properly. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, can be done in two separate ways - manually, in case a visitor performs a certain action on your website, or automatically, if you create a cron job through your account. In the second case, you're able to choose the interval according to what the script will do and how often you'd like it to run - once a minute, hour, day, etc.
