Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting
You are able to use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with any of our shared web hosting plans as we have a rich library of over 3000 modules on our custom-made cloud website hosting platform to ensure that all the dependencies for a custom or a ready-made script are there whenever you need them. You can execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually from your site, or automatically through a cron job that will run a specific file on regular intervals. In the event that the package that you've ordered doesn't come with cron jobs included, you will be able to add as many as you need from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition, you need to make sure that the script file has the proper executable permissions. With 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
If you want to include CGI scripts on your websites or another Perl-based app for that matter, you won't have any problems in the event that you use a semi-dedicated server account from our company. Thousands of Perl modules are installed on our servers and you can call any of them by adding the path which you will find in your Control Panel into the script that you use. Every time you download some app from a third-party site, for instance, you can be sure that you'll be able to use it regardless of the modules it requires to work. Provided that your .pl files have the appropriate UNIX permissions to be executable, you will be able to select whether a particular script will be executed manually by a visitor doing something on your website, or automatically by creating a cron job in your account. With the aforementioned option, your script can be executed every minute, hour or day in accordance with your preference.
