Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with any of our shared website hosting because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules present on our custom-made cloud hosting platform in order to ensure that all dependencies for a tailor-made or a ready-made script are there any time you need them. You'll be able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your website, or automatically via a cron job that will run a specific file on regular intervals. If the package that you've obtained does not come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to add as many as you would like through the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Also, you need to make sure that the script file features the proper executable permissions. When you use our shared plans, you are able to create a site with as many functions and features as you like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
Perl is supported on all of our servers, so if you buy a semi-dedicated server account from us, you're able to use any kind of tailor-made or ready-made CGI script or any other Perl-based web app without difficulty. To save you time and efforts, we have also set up several thousand modules that you can take advantage of. You will be able to see the path to the library in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and include any module in your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for instance, require specific modules, to work properly. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, can be done in two ways - manually, when a website visitor performs a certain action on your website, or automatically, if 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 day, hour, minute, etc.
