Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting
Perl is available with all of the Linux shared hosting that we offer and you are able to execute any kind of .pl file which you upload within your account thanks to the File Manager of the Control Panel or some FTP software. This will enable you to create a site with all the functions that you'd like your visitors to have, but PHP doesn't offer. You're able to execute a script either manually or automatically using a cron job. Our plans feature numerous Perl modules which you are able to employ and you will see the complete list in your web hosting account along with the path that you have to 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 but your package doesn't offer this feature, you're able to add as many cron jobs as you require from the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of the website hosting Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
All Linux semi-dedicated plans that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or various other applications created in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are a part of all of the plans, you can decide if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. Also, you can use a vast library of over 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functions so as to save your time when you create your scripts. If you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs a particular module in order to operate properly, we will have it as our library includes both popular modules and less popular ones. You will be able to view the path to the modules which you should use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
