Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you wish to include CGI scripts on your websites or some other Perl-based application for that matter, you won't experience any sort of problems in case you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are installed on our servers and you'll be able to call each of them by adding the path that you will find in your Control Panel into the script that you use. If you download some app from a third-party website, for instance, you can be sure that you will be able to use it no matter what modules it requires to function. As long as your .pl files have the proper UNIX permissions to make them executable, you can select whether a certain script will be run manually by a visitor doing something on your site, or automatically by setting up a cron job in your account. With the latter option, your script can be executed every day, hour or minute in accordance with your preference.
