Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
Perl is available with all Linux cloud hosting that we offer and you're able to execute any .pl file which you upload in your account thanks to the File Manager of the Control Panel or some FTP program. The latter will help you make an Internet site with all of the options that you'd like your visitors to have, but PHP fails to provide. You're able to execute a script either manually or automatically with a cron job. Our plans include lots of Perl modules which you're able to use and you can see the whole list in your hosting account along with the path that you have to use in your scripts, so as to be able to access these modules. In case you wish to execute a Perl/CGI script through a cron job yet your package doesn't offer this option, you're able to add as many cron jobs as you need via the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of the website hosting Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
Perl is supported on all of our servers, so when you get a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you will be able to use any kind of tailor-made or ready-made CGI script or another Perl-based web application without any difficulties. To save you time and effort, we have also set up several thousand modules which you are able to use. You can see the path to the library inside your 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 function efficiently. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, can be achieved in two ways - manually, if a website visitor performs a specific action on your website, or automatically, when you create a cron job from your account. In the second case, you can select the interval according to what your script will do and how often you would like it to run - once every day, hour, minute, etc.
