Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting
Provided you obtain a Linux shared website hosting from our company, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems as we have plenty of modules installed on the cloud platform where the shared accounts are set up. With every single plan, you will be given access to more than 3000 modules that you will be able to employ in your scripts and you can find the entire list within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel along with the path that you need to use to gain access to them. In case you use any script that you have downloaded from a third-party website, you can be sure that it'll run correctly no matter what modules it requires for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a certain time interval. In case your website hosting package doesn't include cron jobs, you can include this option with just a couple of clicks within the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Perl is supported on all our servers, so if you buy a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you will be able to use any tailor-made or ready-made CGI script or other Perl-based web app without any difficulties. To save you time and efforts, we've also included several thousand modules that 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, require specific modules, so that they can function efficiently. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, is possible in two separate ways - manually, when a website visitor performs a specific action on your site, or automatically, if you create a cron job through your account. In the second case, you're able to select the interval according to what your script will do and how often you want it to run - once every minute, hour, day, etc.
