Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting
You're able to use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with any of our shared hosting packages because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules on our custom cloud hosting platform so as to ensure that all the dependencies for a tailor-made or a pre-made script will be there every time you need them. You can execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually from your website, or automatically via a cron job which will run a specific file on regular intervals. In case the plan which you have acquired doesn't come with cron jobs included, you are able to add as many as you want through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Also, you have to ensure that the script file has the proper executable permissions. With our shared packages, you're able to create a website with as many functions and features as you would like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Perl is supported on all of our servers, so in case you buy a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you'll be able to use any kind of custom-made or ready-made CGI script or any other Perl-based web app without any difficulties. To save you time and effort, we have also set up several thousand modules that you'll be able to use. You can see the path to the library in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and add any module within your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for example, need to have specific modules, so that they can function effectively. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, can be achieved in two separate ways - manually, if a visitor does a certain action on your site, or automatically, when you create a cron job through your account. In the second case, you will be able to choose the interval based on what the script will do and how often you want it to run - once a minute, hour, day, etc.
