Perl is a well-known scripting language that is used to build different web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. One of the attributes that distinguish it from many other programming languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl code that perform predefined jobs and they are universally accepted. Basically, rather than writing custom code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you will be able to "call" a module which is already available for this specific job and use only several lines of program code. In consequence, your script will be executed much more quickly since it'll be much smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make the script much easier to edit because you will have to browse through much less code. If you intend to use Perl on your website, you need to ensure that the necessary modules are present on your server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting include more than 3400 Perl modules that you're able to use as a part of your CGI scripts or web-based applications. They include both widely used and less popular ones, to give you a choice regarding what capabilities you'll be able to add to your sites. A couple of examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and many, many more. A full list accessible in the Server Information section of our tailor-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, that comes with all of the shared accounts. In the same place, you will find the Perl version that we have as well as the path to the modules that you will have to use within your scripts to call a particular module from the library.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Every semi-dedicated server that we offer allows you to employ any Perl-based web app that you'd like, regardless if you've made it yourself or if you've downloaded it from some third-party website. Either way, it will run properly whatever the modules it needs since we have a massive library that contains over 3400 different modules. The complete list is available in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to control the semi-dedicated server accounts. Along with that list, you can also find the directory path to the modules, so as to know what you should include in your scripts in order for them to link to these modules. Examples of what we have are URI, DBD::mysql, Image::Magick and LWP and we offer such a large number of modules to make sure that any type of script will run regardless of its specifications.
