Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
Perl is supported on all our servers, so in case you obtain a semi-dedicated server account through us, you'll be able to use any tailor-made or ready-made CGI script or another Perl-based web app without any difficulties. To save you time and efforts, we have also set up several thousand modules that you can use. You will be able to see the path to the library in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and include any module in your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for example, require certain modules, so as to function effectively. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, can be achieved in two ways - manually, in case a visitor performs a particular action on your site, or automatically, when you create a cron job from your account. In the second case, you'll be able to select the interval based on what your script will do and how often you would like it to run - once a day, hour, minute, etcetera.
