Perl is a very popular web-oriented computer programming language, which is used to generate CGI scripts and also many different applications. It's very handy for the reason that you do not have to generate the same code repeatedly so that you can have some action executed more than once, but you'll be able to use modules. They're pre-defined subroutines or groups of activities which can be called and executed within a script. That is to say, you're able to add only a reference to a certain module inside your code rather than using the whole module code time and time again. In this way, your script will be shorter, which means that it'll be executed much faster, not mentioning that it will be much simpler to maintain and / or modify. If you would like to use some third-party ready-made Perl script rather than writing your own, it will most likely need specific modules to be present on the website hosting server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Hosting

All of our shared hosting feature over 3400 Perl modules that you are able to employ as part of your CGI scripts or web-based apps. They include both widely used and less popular ones, to give you different options in terms of what functionality you're able to add to your websites. Some examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and a lot more. The full list can be found in the Server Information area of our in-house made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, that is featured with all of the shared accounts. In the same location, you will find the Perl version which we have as well as the path to the modules that you'll need to use within your scripts to call a specific module from our library.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers

With over 3400 Perl modules pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to run almost any script app developed in this programming language without a problem irrespective of the semi-dedicated server plan that you select. The aforementioned applies for both pre-made applications that you find online and for custom-built ones which you write. We offer such a multitude of modules for two reasons - first of all, to provide you with different options in respect to what functions you are able to add to your applications and sites and second, to guarantee that if you wish to use a ready script, it will run appropriately no matter what modules it requires. That's why, some of the modules in our library are very popular whereas others are employed very rarely. You will find a list of all of the modules within your web hosting Control Panel along with the access path which your scripts need to use these modules.
