Perl is a widespread web-oriented computer programming language, that is designed to generate CGI scripts along with many different apps. It is very convenient due to the fact that you don't need to create the same program code time and again to get some task executed a couple of times, but you can apply modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or groups of tasks that can be called and executed within a script. This means that, you will be able to include just a reference to a given module within your code rather than using the whole module code over and over again. In this way, your script will be shorter, which means that it will be executed more rapidly, not mentioning that it will be easier to maintain or modify. When you wish to take advantage of some third-party ready-made Perl script rather than creating your own, it'll probably need specific modules to be pre-installed on the web hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Hosting
All of our hosting plans feature over 3400 Perl modules which you will be able to use as part of your CGI scripts or web-based applications. They include both popular and less popular ones, so as to give you a choice with regard to what functions you are able to add to your websites. Several examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and many, many more. The complete list can be found in the Server Information section of our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. In the same place, you'll see the Perl version that we have as well as the path to the modules that you will have to use in your scripts to call a particular module from our library.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you need to use a Perl-based web app or CGI script, you will be able to use 3400+ different modules which can be found on our cloud hosting platform and are a part of each and every semi-dedicated server we provide. You will be able to see the entire list at any time through your Hepsia Control Panel along with the folder path necessary for your scripts to access the modules. We realize the fact that some third-party programs could need modules that aren't popular so as to perform properly, hence the large amount that we have installed on our end. URI, LWP, DBD::mysql and Image::Magick are some of the modules that you will be able to use with your Perl apps regardless of the plan that you select.
