Perl is a popular scripting language which is used to build different web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. Among the characteristics which differentiate it from various other programming languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl program code which execute predefined jobs and they are universally accepted. Basically, as an alternative to writing tailor-made program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you are able to "call" a module which is already available for this specific task and use only a couple of lines of program code. Due to this, your script will be executed more quickly because it is much smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make the script easier to modify considering that you will have to go through a smaller amount of code. If you intend to use Perl on your site, you need to make sure that the mandatory modules can be found on the server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Hosting

If you acquire one of the shared hosting that we supply, you'll have access to a huge library of more than 3400 Perl modules that are already installed on our cloud server platform. Once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to visit the Server Information section where you could see the full list. Part of them are more popular than others, however we have such a large number since we're aware that if you employ an app from a third-party website, it may have certain prerequisites as to which modules should be available on the server or it may not function efficiently. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are some of the modules that you're able to access and take advantage of on your websites.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each semi-dedicated server that we provide allows you to work with any type of Perl-based web application that you'd like, regardless if you have made it yourself or if you've downloaded it from a third-party site. Either way, it will run flawlessly regardless of the modules it needs as we have a massive library that consists of over 3400 different modules. A complete list is accessible in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage the semi-dedicated server accounts. Along with that list, you will also find the directory path to the modules, so as to know what you should include in your scripts in order for them to connect to the modules. A few examples of what we have are URI, DBD::mysql, Image::Magick and LWP and we offer such a multitude of modules to ensure that any script can run in spite of its specifications.
