Perl Scripting in Hosting
Perl is available with all the Linux hosting service that we offer and you will be able to execute any .pl file which you upload inside your account with the File Manager of the Control Panel or an FTP program. This will enable you to make a website with all the functions that you'd like your visitors to have, but PHP fails to provide. You can execute a script either manually or automatically using a cron job. Our packages feature thousands of Perl modules which you'll be able to use and you will see the full list in your hosting account in addition to the path which you have to include in your scripts, to be able to access these modules. If you would like to execute a Perl/CGI script using a cron job however your plan doesn't offer this option, you're able to add as many cron jobs as you need from the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of the website hosting Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
All semi-dedicated hosting service that we supply can run CGI scripts or any other apps developed in Perl and since cron jobs are a part of all of the plans, you will be able to select if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. What's more, you can benefit from a huge library of over 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functions to save time when you write your scripts. In case you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires some module to run properly, we'll have it since our library contains both popular modules and less popular ones. You can see the path to the modules that you have to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
