Perl Scripting in Website Hosting
If you get a Linux website hosting from us, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems as we have plenty of modules installed on the cloud platform where the shared accounts are generated. With each package, you'll have access to over 3000 modules which you can use in your scripts and you can find the complete list within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel together with the path that you should use so as to gain access to them. When you use any script which you've downloaded from some third-party site, you can rest assured that it will function correctly no matter what modules it requires for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. If your website hosting package does not feature cron jobs, you will be able to add this attribute with a few clicks in the Upgrades area of the Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you would like to include CGI scripts on your websites or another Perl-based app for that matter, you won't have any problems if you use a semi-dedicated server account from our company. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our servers and you are able to call any of them by adding the path which you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you've chosen. Any time you download some app from a third-party website, for instance, you can be sure that you'll be able to work with it no matter what modules it needs to function. Given that your .pl files include the proper UNIX permissions to be executable, you're able to decide whether a specific script will be executed manually by a visitor doing something on your site, or automatically by setting up a cron job inside your account. Using the second option, your script can be executed every minute, hour or day according to your preference.
