Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting
Perl is provided with all the Linux shared hosting that we offer and you'll be able to execute any type of .pl file that you upload within your account when you use the File Manager of the Control Panel or some FTP software. This will allow you to make a website with all of the characteristics that you'd like your visitors to have, but PHP fails to provide. You can execute a script either manually or automatically with a cron job. Our packages include countless Perl modules that you can use and you will see the full list in your web hosting account in addition to the path that you should include in your scripts, in order to be able to access these modules. If you'd like to execute a Perl/CGI script through a cron job but your package does not offer this feature, you can add as many cron jobs as you need via the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of the website hosting Control Panel.
