cgi-bin
The Common Gateway Interface (CGI) is a standard protocol for interfacing external application software with an information server, commonly a web server. This allows the server to pass requests from a client web browser to the external application. The web server can then return the output from the application to the web browser. Web servers often have a cgi-bin directory at the base of the domain, to hold executable files.

The cgi-bin is automatically installed on any web hosting account with Renderhosting.net. Use the cgi-bin to place scripts written in Perl or Python.
