Perl is a very popular web-oriented computer programming language, which is designed to generate CGI scripts along with various apps. It is very practical considering that you do not need to write the same code over and over again so as to have some task executed more than once, instead you are able to employ modules. These are pre-defined subroutines or groups of tasks which can be called and executed in a script. In other words, you are able to add only a reference to a particular module within your program code instead of using the entire module code again and again. In this way, your script will be shorter, therefore it will be executed a lot quicker, not mentioning that it will be easier to maintain and / or modify. In case you would like to take advantage of some third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to writing your own, it'll most likely need certain modules to be present on the hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Hosting
All our hosting plans include over 3400 Perl modules that you're able to employ as part of your CGI scripts or web-based applications. They include both widespread and less popular ones, in order to supply you with a choice regarding what functionality you will be able to add to your sites. Some examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and a lot more. The whole list accessible in the Server Information section of our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which is featured with all the shared accounts. In the same location, you'll see the Perl version that we have as well as the path to the modules that you'll have to use within your scripts so as to call a given module from the library.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers
With over 3400 Perl modules pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to manage any kind of script application developed in this programming language without any problems irrespective of the semi-dedicated server plan that you choose. The aforementioned applies for both pre-made apps that you find online and for in-house built ones which you create. We have such a multitude of modules for two reasons - first of all, to provide you with different options in respect to what kind of characteristics you're able to add to your apps and sites and second, to guarantee that in case you wish to use a ready script, it will run appropriately whatever the modules it requires. For this reason, most of the modules included in our library are very popular while others are used very rarely. You will find a list of all modules inside your hosting Control Panel along with the access path that your scripts will need to use the modules.
