Perl is a popular scripting language that is designed to create different web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. One of the features which differentiate it from alternative languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl code that perform predefined jobs and they're widely accepted. Basically, instead of creating custom-made program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you're able to "call" a module that already exists for this particular task and use only a couple of lines of program code. Because of this, your script shall be executed much more quickly as it is much smaller. Employing modules will also make your script much easier to modify since you'll have to search through much less program code. In case you'd like to use Perl on your website, you have to make sure that the required modules can be found on your server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Website Hosting

When you obtain one of the shared website hosting plans that we supply, you'll have access to a huge library of over 3400 Perl modules that are already set up on our cloud server platform. As soon as you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you're able to visit the Server Information area where you can easily check the whole list. Part of them are more common than others, but we offer such a large number because we're aware that when you use an app from a third-party site, it could have specific requirements as to what kind of modules need to be set up on the server or it might not work properly. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are on the list of modules that you're able to access and employ on your sites.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide will allow you to work with any Perl-based web app that you would like, no matter if you have created it yourself or if you have downloaded it from a third-party website. In either case, it will function flawlessly regardless of the modules it needs because we have a large library which contains more than 3400 different modules. The full list is available in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel which is used to control the semi-dedicated server accounts. In addition to the list, you'll also see the directory path to the modules, so as to know what you need to add in your scripts in order for them to connect to these modules. Some examples of what we have are URI, DBD::mysql, Image::Magick and LWP and we've got such a multitude of modules to make sure that almost any script can run in spite of its specifications.
