Perl Scripting in Web Hosting
Perl is provided with all Linux web hosting that we provide and you are able to execute any .pl file that you upload within your account using the File Manager of the Control Panel or an FTP program. The aforementioned will allow you to create a site with all of the functions that you would like your visitors to have, but PHP fails to offer. You can execute a script either manually or automatically using a cron job. Our packages come with thousands of Perl modules which you are able to employ and you'll see the whole list in your hosting account along with the path which you should use in your scripts, to be able to access these modules. In case you would like to execute a Perl/CGI script with a cron job however your package does not offer this feature, you'll be able to include 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
You can employ every Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with all of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans that we provide as Perl is supported on all of our servers. You'll be able to make every .pl file executable by setting the correct UNIX permissions for it through the Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and depending on the actual script, it can be executed manually as a result of some action your client performs on the site, or automatically by a cron job which you can set up inside your account. In case you decide to employ a script that you've found online and it needs specific modules to be present on your server, you will be able to take advantage of our rich library which features more than 3000 modules. In this way, you can rest assured that every Perl application that you make or find on the Internet will perform properly on our end.
