Perl is a popular scripting language which is employed to create different web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. Among the features that distinguish it from alternative languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl code that perform predefined jobs and they're universally accepted. In simple terms, rather than generating tailor-made program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you will be able to "call" some module that already exists for this particular process and use just a couple of lines of program code. Because of this, your script shall be executed faster because it will be much smaller. Using modules will, in addition make the script simpler to modify since you will need to search through much less code. If you'd like to use Perl on your site, you have to make sure that the necessary modules can be found on the server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Cloud Web Hosting

All our cloud web hosting include more than 3400 Perl modules which you'll be able to benefit from as part of your CGI scripts or web-based apps. They contain both widely used and less popular ones, in order to give you different options with regard to what functions you'll be able to add to your websites. Some examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and a lot more. The whole list accessible in the Server Information area of our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which is provided with all shared accounts. In the same location, you'll find the Perl version that we have and the path to the modules that you will have to use within your scripts so as to call a particular module from the library.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting include a big selection of Perl modules which you may use with your scripts. This way, even if you need to use a program that you have discovered online from a different site, you can be certain that it will work correctly since no matter what modules it could possibly need, we'll have them. Our selection features more than 3400 modules including DBD::mysql, URI, LWP, XML::Parser and many more - many of them are widely used and others not so much. We keep such a large amount to be on the safe side and to make sure that any script shall run on our servers even if some module that it requires is used rarely. The entire list of modules which you can use is available within the Hepsia web hosting CP that comes with the semi-dedicated accounts.
