Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting
Perl is available with all the Linux shared web hosting that we provide and you can execute any type of .pl file that you upload in your account using the File Manager of the Control Panel or some FTP software. The latter will enable you to build a website with all of the options that you would like your visitors to have, but PHP does not offer. You will be able to execute a script either manually or automatically through a cron job. Our packages feature numerous Perl modules that you're able to employ and you can see a full list in your hosting account along with the path that you should include in your scripts, in order to be able to access these modules. In case you would like to execute a Perl/CGI script using a cron job but your package does not offer this option, you're able to add as many cron jobs as you require via the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of your web hosting Control Panel.
