Perl is a very popular web-oriented computer programming language, which is designed to set up CGI scripts along with a variety of apps. It's really handy due to the fact that you do not have to write the same code time and again so that you can have some action executed more than once, but you are able to work with modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or groups of activities that 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 rather than using the whole module code over and over again. In this way, your script will be shorter, thus it'll be executed a lot faster, not mentioning that it'll be easier to maintain and / or modify. If you want to employ a third-party ready-made Perl script rather than writing your own, it'll most likely need certain modules to be pre-installed on the website hosting server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Hosting

All of our Linux hosting include over 3400 Perl modules that you can take advantage of as a part of your CGI scripts or web-based applications. They include both popular and less popular ones, so as to provide you with different options in terms of what capabilities you will be able to add to your sites. Several examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and many others. The whole list can be found in the Server Information area of our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. In the same location, you can find the Perl version that we have and the path to the modules that you will have to use within your scripts in order to call a given module from our library.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each semi-dedicated server that we offer allows you to employ any Perl-based web application that you'd like, regardless if you have created it yourself or if you have downloaded it from a third-party site. Either way, it'll function flawlessly whatever the modules it needs since we have a rich library that consists of more than 3400 different modules. A full list is available in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to take care of the semi-dedicated server accounts. In addition to the list, you can also see the directory path to the modules, in order to know what you have to include in your scripts in order for them to link to these modules. A few examples of what we have are URI, DBD::mysql, Image::Magick and LWP and we've got such a multitude of modules to make sure that any type of script will be able to run in spite of its requirements.
