Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting
You'll be able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all our shared website hosting plans because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules installed on our custom cloud hosting platform to make sure that all the dependencies for a custom-made or a ready-made script will be there any time you need them. You're able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually from your website, or automatically using a cron job that will run a specific file on regular intervals. In case the package that you've picked doesn't come with cron jobs included, you will be able to add as many as you need from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to make sure that the script file features the needed executable permissions. Using our shared packages, you can create a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
Perl is supported on all our servers, so if you obtain a semi-dedicated server account through us, you're able to use any custom-made or ready-made CGI script or any other Perl-based web application without difficulty. To save your time and efforts, we've also installed several thousand modules which you can take advantage of. You can see the path to the library inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and include any module in your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for example, need to have certain modules, so that they can operate efficiently. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, can be done in two separate ways - manually, when a website visitor does a specific 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 the script will do and how often you want it to run - once every minute, hour, day, etcetera.
