Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting
Perl is provided with all Linux shared website hosting packages that we provide and you can execute any .pl file which you upload within your account using the File Manager of the Control Panel or an FTP software. The latter will help you make a site with all the features that you would like your visitors to have, but PHP doesn't offer. You will be able to execute a script either manually or automatically with a cron job. Our plans include numerous Perl modules that you can employ and you can see the whole list in your hosting account as well as the path that you need to use in your scripts, in order to be able to access these modules. If you'd like to execute a Perl/CGI script using a cron job however your package doesn't offer this option, you can include as many cron jobs as you require from the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of your website hosting Control Panel.
