Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting
You'll be able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all our shared website hosting services as we have a rich library of over 3000 modules present on our custom cloud hosting platform to make sure that all dependencies for a tailor-made or a pre-made script will be there whenever you need them. You can execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your site, or automatically using a cron job that will run a certain file regularly. If the package which you have obtained does not come with cron jobs included, you can easily include as many as you need from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. You also need to make sure that the script file is provided with the right executable permissions. With our shared packages, you're able to create a website with as many functions and features as you like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you would like to include CGI scripts on your websites or some other Perl-based app for that matter, you will not have any kind of problems in case you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are installed on our servers and you will be able to call them by adding the path that you will find in your Control Panel into the script that you've chosen. If you download some app from a third-party site, for instance, you can be sure that you'll be able to work with it no matter what modules it requires to function. As long as your .pl files include the appropriate UNIX permissions to ensure they are executable, you're able to choose whether a given script will be executed manually by a guest doing something on your website, or automatically by setting up a cron job inside your account. Using the second option, your script can be executed every minute, hour or day depending on your preference.
