Perl is a popular scripting language that is employed to create different web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. One of the characteristics that differentiate it from other programming languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl program code that complete predefined tasks and they're widely accepted. In simple terms, rather than writing custom-made program code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you're able to "call" some module that is already available for this particular task and use only a few lines of code. As a result, your script shall be executed quicker as it'll be much smaller. Using modules will also make a script much easier to edit because you will have to browse through a smaller amount of code. In case you would like to use Perl on your site, you have to make sure that the required modules are available on the server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Hosting

When you buy one of the Linux shared hosting that we supply, you will have access to a large library of over 3400 Perl modules which are already installed on our cloud server platform. When you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you're able to go to the Server Information area where you can easily check the entire list. Some of them are more popular than others, but we offer such a large selection since we're aware that if you employ an app from some third-party site, it may have specific prerequisites as to what kind of modules need to be available on the server or it might not work properly. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are on the list of modules that you can access and employ on your websites.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each and every semi-dedicated server that we offer will allow you to work with any kind of Perl-based web app that you would like, no matter if you've made it yourself or if you have downloaded it from a third-party site. Either way, it'll run perfectly whatever the modules it may require as we have a large library which includes more than 3400 different modules. A full list can be found in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage the semi-dedicated server accounts. In addition to that list, you will also see the directory path to the modules, in order to know what you should add 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 have such a large number of modules to make sure that virtually any kind of script will run regardless of its requirements.
