Perl is a well-known scripting language that's used to make different web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. Among the features that differentiate it from other programming languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl program code that perform predefined tasks and they're commonly accepted. Basically, rather than creating custom-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you're able to "call" some module that already exists for this specific job and use only a couple of lines of code. Therefore, your script shall be executed a lot quicker since it is much smaller. Using modules will, in addition make the script simpler to edit since you'll have to browse through much less code. If you would like to use Perl on your website, you have to ensure that the needed modules are available on your server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Web Hosting

All our web hosting feature more than 3400 Perl modules that you'll be able to take advantage of as part of your CGI scripts or web-based applications. They contain both popular and less popular ones, so as to supply you with different options with regard to what functions you're able to add to your sites. A couple of examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and many others. A full list accessible in the Server Information area of our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which is provided with all the shared accounts. In the same place, you'll see the Perl version that we have along with the path to the modules that you will have to use within your scripts so as to call a certain module from our library.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide allows you to use any Perl-based web app that you'd like, regardless if you have created it yourself or if you have downloaded it from a third-party website. Either way, it'll run perfectly whatever the modules it needs as we have a rich library that contains over 3400 different modules. A full list can be found in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to control the semi-dedicated server accounts. Along with that list, you can 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 link to the modules. A few examples of what we have are URI, DBD::mysql, Image::Magick and LWP and we've got such a multitude of modules to make sure that any type of script can run regardless of its specifications.
