Perl is a very popular web-oriented programming language, that's designed to set up CGI scripts as well as a variety of applications. It is really handy considering that you do not have to generate the same program code repeatedly so that you can get some action executed more than once, but you'll be able to use modules. They're pre-defined subroutines or groups of operations which can be called and executed inside a script. This means that, you will be able to include only a reference to a specific module in your program code as an alternative to using the entire module code time and time again. This way, your script will be shorter, thus it will be executed quicker, not mentioning that it'll be much easier to maintain and / or modify. In case you'd like to employ a third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to writing your own, it will probably need particular modules to be present on the web hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Hosting
If you acquire one of the shared plans
that we supply, you'll have access to a large library of more than 3400 Perl modules which are already set up on our cloud server platform. As soon as you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to visit the Server Information section where you can see the full list. Part of them are more common than others, but we have such a large number because we're aware that if you employ an application from a third-party website, it may have certain requirements as to what kind of modules should be installed on the server or it might not function properly. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are some of the modules that you'll be able to access and employ on your sites.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each and every semi-dedicated server
that we provide will allow you to employ any type of Perl-based web application that you wish, no matter if you've created it yourself or if you have downloaded it from a third-party website. In either case, it will run flawlessly irrespective of the modules it requires as we have a rich library that consists of over 3400 different modules. The full list is accessible in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel which is used to control the semi-dedicated server accounts. In addition to that list, you will also find the directory path to the modules, in order to know what you need to add in your scripts in order for them to connect to these modules. Some 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 virtually any kind of script will run in spite of its specifications.
