Perl is a very popular web-oriented programming language, which is designed to create CGI scripts and many different apps. It is really practical since you don't need to produce the very same code again and again to have some process executed a couple of times, instead you can work with modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or sets of activities that can be called and executed inside a script. That is to say, you can include just a reference to a certain module in your program 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 a lot easier to maintain and modify. If you want to employ a third-party ready-made Perl script instead of writing your own, it will probably need specific modules to be pre-installed on the web hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Hosting
All our shared hosting come with over 3400 Perl modules that you will be able to use as a part of your CGI scripts or web-based apps. They include both widespread and less popular ones, so as to offer you different options in terms of what features you're able to add to your websites. Several examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and many others. The full list accessible in the Server Information area of our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, that is featured with all the shared accounts. In the same location, you will see the Perl version that we have and the path to the modules that you'll have to use within your scripts to call a particular module from the library.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each and every semi-dedicated server that we offer allows you to work with any type of Perl-based web application that you would like, regardless if you have made it yourself or if you have downloaded it from some third-party website. Either way, it'll function perfectly whatever the modules it requires as we have a rich library that contains more than 3400 different modules. A complete list is accessible in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to take care of the semi-dedicated server accounts. In addition to that list, you can also find 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 large number of modules to ensure that any type of script can run regardless of its specifications.
