Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting
Perl is available with all the shared hosting plans that we offer and you are able to execute any .pl file which you upload inside your account using the File Manager of the Control Panel or an FTP software. The latter will allow you to build a website with all the functions that you would like your visitors to have, but PHP doesn't provide. You're able to execute a script either manually or automatically using a cron job. Our plans come with countless Perl modules that you can employ and you will see the full list in your website hosting account along with the path that you need to include in your scripts, to be able to access these modules. If you'd like to execute a Perl/CGI script with a cron job however your package doesn't offer this option, you are able to add as many cron jobs as you require from the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of the web hosting Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to employ any Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with any of the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we supply as Perl is supported on all our servers. You will be able to make each .pl file executable by setting the right UNIX permissions for it from the Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and depending on the actual script, it may be executed manually as a result of some action the client performs on your website, or automatically by a cron job which you can create in your account. If you choose to employ a script that you've found online and it needs certain modules to to be available on the server, you will be able to reap the benefits of our rich library that features more than 3000 modules. This way, you can rest assured that any Perl application that you write or find on the web will perform properly on our end.
