Perl is a widespread web-oriented programming language, that is employed to generate CGI scripts and also a variety of applications. It is very handy for the reason that you do not have to submit the same program code repeatedly in order to get some action executed more than once, instead you're able to employ modules. They're pre-defined subroutines or sets of functions which can be called and executed within a script. That is to say, you can include only a reference to a given module inside your code instead of using the whole module code again and again. This way, your script will be shorter, which means that it will be executed faster, not mentioning that it'll be easier to maintain and modify. In case you'd like to take advantage of some third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to creating your own, it'll probably need certain modules to be present on the web hosting server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Hosting

All of our shared plans include more than 3400 Perl modules that you are able to benefit from as a part of your CGI scripts or web-based apps. They contain both popular and less popular ones, in order to offer you a choice regarding what features you'll be able to add to your sites. Several examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and many, many more. The whole list can be found in the Server Information section of our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is featured with all the shared accounts. In the same place, you will see the Perl version which we have as well as the path to the modules that you will have to use within your scripts so as to call a particular module from our library.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each semi-dedicated server that we supply will allow you to employ any Perl-based web application that you wish, no matter if you've made it yourself or if you've downloaded it from a third-party site. Either way, it'll function properly irrespective of the modules it may require since we have a massive library that contains over 3400 different modules. A complete list is available in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that's used to control the semi-dedicated server accounts. Along with the list, you'll also see the directory path to the modules, so as to know what you need to include in your scripts in order for them to connect to these modules. Examples of what we have are URI, DBD::mysql, Image::Magick and LWP and we supply such a multitude of modules to ensure that any type of script can run regardless of its requirements.
