Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting
You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all of our cloud web hosting plans because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules installed on our custom-made cloud hosting platform to ensure that all the dependencies for a custom or a ready-made script will be there whenever you need them. You're able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually via your website, or automatically by using a cron job which will run a specific file on regular intervals. In the event that the plan that you've acquired does not come with cron jobs included, you are able to include as many as you want through the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. You also need to ensure that the script file has the proper executable permissions. When you use our shared packages, you will be able to build a site with as many functions and features as you like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you would like to include CGI scripts on your websites or any other Perl-based software for that matter, you will not experience any kind of problems if you use a semi-dedicated server account from our company. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our machines and you'll be able to call any of them by including the path which you will find in your Control Panel into the script that you've chosen. If you download some app from a third-party website, for example, you can be sure that you will be able to use it whatever the modules it requires to work. As long as your .pl files include the right UNIX permissions to ensure they are executable, you'll be able to decide whether a specific script will be run manually by a guest doing something on your site, or automatically by creating a cron job inside your account. Using the aforementioned option, your script can be executed every minute, hour or day depending on your preference.
