Perl Scripting in Website Hosting
Perl is available with all of the website hosting that we supply and you'll be able to execute any .pl file which you upload inside your account using the File Manager of the Control Panel or some FTP software. This will allow you to create an Internet site with all of the features that you would like your visitors to have, but PHP cannot supply. You are able to execute a script either manually or automatically using a cron job. Our plans come with lots of Perl modules which you're able to use and you will see a full list in your website hosting account along with the path that you should use in your scripts, so as to be able to access these modules. In case you'd like to execute a Perl/CGI script through a cron job however your plan does not offer this feature, you can include as many cron jobs as you require via the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of the hosting Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can use any kind of Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with any of the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we offer as Perl is supported on our servers. You are able to make every .pl file executable by setting the appropriate UNIX permissions for it through the Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and depending on the actual script, it can be run manually as a result of some action the client performs on the website, or automatically via a cron job which you can create inside your account. If you decide to use a script which you've found online and it requires particular modules to be present on the server, you will be able to benefit from our vast library which features over 3000 modules. Thus, you can be sure that every Perl application that you generate or find on the Internet will perform properly on our end.
