Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting
Perl is available with all Linux shared website hosting that we provide and you'll be able to execute any .pl file which you upload in your account thanks to the File Manager of the Control Panel or an FTP program. The aforementioned will allow you to build an Internet site with all the features that you'd like your visitors to have, but PHP fails to provide. You'll be able to execute a script either manually or automatically through a cron job. Our plans come with a large number of Perl modules which you're able to use and you will see the complete list in your website hosting account in addition to the path which you should use 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 but your plan does not offer this option, you will be able to add as many cron jobs as you need through the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of your hosting Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Perl is supported on all our servers, so in case you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you can use any custom-made or ready-made CGI script or another Perl-based web app without difficulty. To save you time and effort, we have also included several thousand modules that you're able to take advantage of. You will be able to see the path to the library in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and include any module in your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for instance, require specific modules, to function efficiently. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, is possible in two separate ways - manually, in case a visitor performs a specific action on your website, or automatically, if you set up a cron job from your account. In the second case, you will be able to 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.
