Perl Scripting in Web Hosting
Perl is available with all the Linux web hosting that we supply and you are able to execute any type of .pl file that you upload within your account with the File Manager of the Control Panel or some FTP program. The aforementioned will allow you to make a site with all of the characteristics that you would like your visitors to have, but PHP can't supply. You can execute a script either manually or automatically with a cron job. Our plans come with lots of Perl modules that you can use and you can see the whole list in your web hosting account along with the path that you need to use in your scripts, in order to be able to access these modules. If you would like to execute a Perl/CGI script using a cron job however your plan doesn't offer this feature, you'll be able to add as many cron jobs as you need from the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of your hosting Control Panel.
