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