Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting
Perl is provided with all Linux shared website hosting packages that we supply and you are able to execute any type of .pl file which you upload within your account using the File Manager of the Control Panel or some FTP program. The latter will allow you to create a website with all the functions that you'd like your visitors to have, but PHP can't supply. You are able to execute a script either manually or automatically through a cron job. Our packages come with a large number of Perl modules which you're able to use and you'll see a full list in your website hosting account in addition to the path which you need to use in your scripts, in order to be able to access these modules. If you wish to execute a Perl/CGI script through a cron job but your plan doesn't offer this option, you're able to include as many cron jobs as you need through the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of the web hosting Control Panel.
