Well on my domain the cgi-bin is accessible from the public-html area 
where I put html pages with a FTP client by going up one level and is 
part of my space on the server, not the servers cgi-bin which is not 
accessible, if I was using a windows server instead of a Linux server 
for my domain the cgi-bin would be in the Public-html area.

So if you dont have one in your webspace space you could just try 
putting a folder on your webspace called cgi-bin and see if you can 
put scripts in this and run them.
