Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting
Perl is provided with all the shared website hosting plans that we provide and you can execute any type of .pl file which you upload within your account with the File Manager of the Control Panel or some FTP program. The latter will allow you to build a website with all the features that you would like your visitors to have, but PHP can't provide. You'll be able to execute a script either manually or automatically with a cron job. Our packages include thousands of Perl modules which you're able to employ and you will see a full list in your hosting account in addition to the path that you need to include in your scripts, 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 feature, you can include as many cron jobs as you need from the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of the website hosting Control Panel.
