      Does DChostings support CGI scripts, databases, and/or user forums?

    What is CGI?

    CGI (COMMON GATEWAY INTERFACE) is a standard method of extending Web server functionality by executing programs or scripts on a Web server in response to Web browser requests. A common use of CGI is in form processing, where the Web browser sends form data to a CGI script on the server, the script integrates the data with a database, and sends back the results as a Web page.

    The path to perl is:    #!/usr/bin/perl
