Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting
If you purchase a cloud web hosting plan from us, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems because we have plenty of modules on the cloud platform where all the shared accounts are generated. With every single plan, you will have access to over 3000 modules which you will be able to use in your scripts and you can find a full list inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel as well as the path that you need to use to get access to them. When you use any script that you have downloaded from some third-party website, you can be sure that it will work perfectly whatever the modules it needs for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you can create a cron job to do this automatically at a given time interval. In case your web hosting plan does not include cron jobs, you are able to add this option with just a few clicks within the Upgrades area of your Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
Perl is supported on all of our servers, so when you buy a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you're able to use any tailor-made or ready-made CGI script or another Perl-based web application without any difficulties. To save you time and effort, we've also set up several thousand modules which you will be able to use. You will be able to see the path to the library inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and add any module in your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for instance, need specific modules, so as to function efficiently. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, can be achieved in two ways - manually, when a visitor does a specific action on your site, or automatically, when you set up a cron job from your account. In the second case, you can choose the interval according to what the script will do and how often you'd like it to run - once every minute, hour, day, etc.
