Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting
Perl is provided with all the cloud website hosting that we provide and you'll be able to execute any kind of .pl file that you upload within your account using the File Manager of the Control Panel or an FTP program. The latter will help you create a site with all the options that you would like your visitors to have, but PHP doesn't provide. You're able to execute a script either manually or automatically with a cron job. Our packages come with lots of Perl modules which you're able to use and you'll see the whole list in your website hosting account along with the path that you have to include 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 package doesn't offer this option, you can add as many cron jobs as you require through the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of your hosting Control Panel.
