Perl is a widespread web-oriented computer programming language, that's employed to make CGI scripts as well as various applications. It is very convenient as you do not have to generate the same code over and over to get some task executed a couple of times, instead you will be able to employ modules. They're pre-defined subroutines or sets of tasks that can be called and executed inside a script. This means that, you will be able to add just a reference to a specific module inside your code rather than using the whole module code over and over again. In this way, your script will be shorter, therefore it'll be executed quicker, not mentioning that it will be a lot easier to maintain and / or modify. In case you wish to take advantage of a third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to writing your own, it'll probably need certain modules to be present on the website hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Web Hosting
When you obtain one of the web hosting plans
that we offer, you will have access to a large library of over 3400 Perl modules that are already installed on our cloud server platform. When you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to go to the Server Information section where you could check the entire list. Some of them are more common than others, yet we have such a large number as we realize that if you use an app from a third-party website, it may have specific requirements as to what modules need to be available on the server or it will not work appropriately. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are some of the modules that you can access and take advantage of on your sites.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers
Every single semi-dedicated server
that we offer allows you to work with any Perl-based web application that you'd like, regardless if you've created it yourself or if you have downloaded it from a third-party site. In either case, it'll function flawlessly irrespective of the modules it needs because we have a massive library which includes over 3400 different modules. The complete list can be found in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that's used to manage the semi-dedicated server accounts. In addition to that list, you'll also see the directory path to the modules, so as to know what you have to add in your scripts in order for them to link to the modules. Examples of what we have are URI, DBD::mysql, Image::Magick and LWP and we offer such a multitude of modules to make sure that virtually any kind of script will be able to run in spite of its requirements.
