Perl is a widespread web-oriented computer programming language, which is employed to generate CGI scripts and also many different apps. It's very convenient since you do not have to write the same code time and time again so as to have some task executed several times, instead you can employ modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or groups of functions that can be called and executed within a script. That is to say, you are able to add just a reference to a specific module within your code as an alternative to using the whole module code again and again. This way, your script will be shorter, thus it will be executed much faster, not mentioning that it'll be easier to maintain and modify. When you want to employ some third-party ready-made Perl script rather than writing your own, it will probably need certain modules to be pre-installed on the website hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Website Hosting
All our shared website hosting plans feature over 3400 Perl modules which you'll be able to benefit from as part of your CGI scripts or web-based applications. They include both popular and less popular ones, so as to offer you different options in terms of what functionality you're able to add to your sites. A few examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and many others. The complete list accessible in the Server Information area of our custom-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. In the same location, you will find the Perl version that we have along with the path to the modules that you'll have to use in your scripts so as to call a particular module from the library.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each semi-dedicated server that we offer will allow you to employ any type of Perl-based web app that you would like, regardless if you have created it yourself or if you have downloaded it from some third-party website. In either case, it'll run perfectly irrespective of the modules it may require because we have a large library which consists of more than 3400 different modules. The complete list can be found in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to control 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 the modules. A few examples of what we have are URI, DBD::mysql, Image::Magick and LWP and we supply such a large number of modules to make sure that any kind of script will run in spite of its specifications.
