Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
Perl is supported on all of our servers, so in case you buy a semi-dedicated server account from us, you are able to use any kind of custom or ready-made CGI script or other Perl-based web app without difficulty. To save your time and efforts, we've also added several thousand modules that you can employ. You will be able to see the path to the library inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and include any module in your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for example, will need certain modules, so that they can operate effectively. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, can be done in two ways - manually, in case a website visitor does a specific action on your site, or automatically, when you set up a cron job from your account. In the second case, you are able to choose the interval based on what your script will do and how often you want it to run - once a minute, hour, day, etc.
