Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
You are able to use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with any of our cloud plans as we have a rich library of over 3000 modules installed on our custom cloud hosting platform to make sure that all the dependencies for a tailor-made or a ready-made script are there whenever you need them. You're able to execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually from your site, or automatically through a cron job which will run a certain file on regular intervals. In the event that the plan which you've ordered does not come with cron jobs included, you are able to add as many as you want from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. In addition, you need to make sure that the script file has the needed executable permissions. When you use our shared packages, you are able to create a site with as many functions and features as you'd like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you would like to include CGI scripts on your websites or some other Perl-based software for that matter, you won't experience any sort of problems in case you use a semi-dedicated server account from our company. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our machines and you can call each of them by including the path that you will find in your Control Panel into the script that you've chosen. When you download some app from a third-party website, for instance, you can be sure that you will be able to work with it regardless of the modules it needs to function. As long as your .pl files include the right UNIX permissions to ensure they are executable, you can choose whether a certain script will be executed manually by a guest doing something on your website, or automatically by setting up a cron job in your account. Using the latter option, your script can be run every minute, hour or day depending on your preference.
