Perl Scripting in Website Hosting
You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all of our Linux website hosting packages because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules present on our custom cloud hosting platform to make sure that all the dependencies for a custom or a ready-made script are there when you need them. You will be able to run a .pl file in two ways - either manually via your site, or automatically through a cron job which will run a particular file on regular intervals. If the package which you have acquired does not come with cron jobs included, you're able to add as many as you would like from the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. In addition, you need to make sure that the script file is provided with the proper executable permissions. Using our shared plans, you can create a website with as many functions and features as you like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Perl is supported on all our servers, so in case you aquire a semi-dedicated server account from us, you'll be able to use any tailor-made or ready-made CGI script or any other Perl-based web application without any difficulties. To save you time and effort, we've also installed several thousand modules which you can use. You can see the path to the library in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and include any module within your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for instance, need specific modules, in order to operate effectively. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, can be achieved in two ways - manually, when a visitor does a certain action on your site, or automatically, if you create a cron job through your account. In the second case, you will be able to choose the interval based on what your script will do and how often you want it to run - once a day, hour, minute, etcetera.
