Q: Can I install my own CGI Scripts?

A: Yes. Each account comes fully equipped with its own pre-configured CGI-Bin. Customers are free to use any of the CGI scripts included free with their account or any others they may wish to add to their account. We only monitor for poorly written CGI Scripts, as use of these scripts on high traffic sites may affect the normal functioning of our servers and in turn affect the performance of other web sites hosted on that server.

Q: Can I run scripts outside of my cgi-bin?

A: Yes, any script you setup outside of your cgi-bin must have a .cgi extension rather than .pl. If the file you are using has an extension other than .cgi and you would like to run it outside your cgi-bin you can just rename the file to *.cgi so it will execute properly.
If you really need the .pl extension outside your cgi-bin, you can add the following to your .htaccess file:
AddType application/x-httpd-cgi .pl
AddHandler cgi-script .pl

Q: Can I compile programs written in C and C++?

A: Yes, we offer the standard GCC compiler.

The C and C++ compilers are integrated. Both process input files through one or more of four stages preprocessing, compilation, assembly, and linking. Source filename suffixes identify the source language, but which name you use for the compiler governs default assumptions.

Q: Do you upgrade Perl when new releases are available?

A: Yes. Once a new build of Perl has been deemed as stable versus experimental, we will implement a upgrade across our network based on how it may effect existing scripts already in operation.

Q: Does your server software support Java Servlets?

A: No, sorry.

Q: Do you support Active Server Pages (ASP) or Cold Fusion?

A: Cold Fusion isn't supported. For ASP, we have Chili!Soft ASP 3.5.2 for Linux installed. But we don't specialize in ASP hosting.
