Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting
Perl is available with all of the shared hosting plans that we provide and you'll be able to execute any .pl file that you upload inside your account with the File Manager of the Control Panel or an FTP software. This will enable you to make an Internet site with all the features that you'd like your visitors to have, but PHP does not provide. You'll be able to execute a script either manually or automatically using a cron job. Our plans feature thousands of Perl modules that you'll be able to use and you can see the whole list in your website hosting account along with the path which you should include in your scripts, in order to be able to access these modules. In case you'd like to execute a Perl/CGI script with a cron job yet your package doesn't offer this feature, you're able to add as many cron jobs as you require via the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of your web hosting Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
All Linux semi-dedicated servers that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or any other applications written in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are a part of all packages, you'll be able to pick if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. What's more, you can benefit from a large library of over 3000 modules which are already installed on our servers and use their functionality to save your time when you write your scripts. If you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs a certain module in order to work efficiently, we'll have it since our library includes both widely used modules and less popular ones. You're able to see the path to the modules that you have to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
