Perl is a widespread web-oriented programming language, which is used to make CGI scripts as well as various applications. It's really handy due to the fact that you don't have to write the same code time and time again in order to get some process executed several times, but you're able to use modules. They're pre-defined subroutines or sets of functions that can be called and executed in a script. This means that, you're able to add just a reference to a given module in your code instead of using the entire module code again and again. This way, your script will be shorter, which means that it will be executed much faster, not mentioning that it'll be easier to maintain and modify. When you'd like to employ a third-party ready-made Perl script rather than writing your own, it will probably need particular modules to be present on the web hosting server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Web Hosting

All our web hosting feature over 3400 Perl modules which you can benefit from as part of your CGI scripts or web-based apps. They contain both popular and less popular ones, to provide you with different options in terms of what functionality you're able to add to your sites. Some examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and many, many more. A full list accessible in the Server Information section of our custom-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, that is featured with all shared accounts. In the same location, you'll find the Perl version that we have and the path to the modules that you'll need to use in your scripts so as to call a specific module from our library.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers

With over 3400 Perl modules pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you are able to run virtually any script app written in this programming language without a problem whatever the semi-dedicated server package that you select. The aforementioned applies for both pre-made apps that you find online and for in-house built ones which you create. We provide such a large number of modules for two reasons - first, to provide you with a selection in respect to what functions you'll be able to add to your applications and sites and second, to guarantee that when you want to work with a ready script, it'll run appropriately regardless of what modules it needs. For this reason, most of the modules inside our library are very popular while others are used very rarely. You will see a list of all of the modules in your website hosting Control Panel in addition to the access path that your scripts need to use these modules.
