CGI scripts are programs that actually execute on the web server, not on the client's computer. They retrieve data that was sent from user input, manipulate it, and then return a message to the browser. CGI scripts can be written in almost any computer programming language, so long as that language can execute on the server that it resides on. Our servers support ASP (active server pages), VB Script and the 32 bit Windows.exe files created by C/C++ and Visual Basic, as well as Perl, and PHP if you have activated the Free Linux option on your hosting account
Please Note: CGI will only work on our Windows 2003 servers.
