Can I use my own Perl or PHP scripts?

We support scripts written in the common Perl or PHP programming languages. That means you can use a wide variety of scripts written by other people, or create scripts yourself. See our Perl or PHP help topics for more information.

Preinstalled scripts

We also provide two useful CGI scripts that are preinstalled for all our customers and require no additional setup:

The first script can collect data from your Web page and mail it to you it's the standard FormMail CGI. You can use this for feedback forms, newsletter signups, and the like. Please see FormMail for more details.

The second script is a snazzy CGI counter that allows you to track and display the number of hits to your pages. You can also use your own digit image files to customize the appearance of the counter any way you want. Please see Hit Counter for more details.
