Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting
Provided you purchase a cloud website hosting service from our company, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem since we have numerous modules installed on the cloud hosting platform where all of the shared accounts are generated. With every single plan, you will have access to over 3000 modules that you can use in your scripts and you'll find the complete list inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel as well as the path that you need to use to get access to them. Should you use any script which you have downloaded from a third-party site, you can be sure that it will work correctly no matter what modules it requires for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you can set up a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. If your hosting package doesn't come with cron jobs, you will be able to include this attribute with a few clicks in the Upgrades area of your Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you would like to include CGI scripts on your websites or any other Perl-based app for that matter, you will not have any problems in case you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our servers and you will be able to call them by adding the path that you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you've chosen. When you download some app from a third-party site, for instance, you can be sure that you'll be able to use it no matter what modules it needs to function. Given that your .pl files include the right UNIX permissions to ensure they are executable, you'll be able to select whether a certain script will be executed manually by a visitor doing something on your site, or automatically by creating a cron job inside your account. With the second option, your script can be executed every minute, hour or day according to your preference.
