Perl is a popular scripting language that's used to create different web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. Among the characteristics that distinguish it from various other languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl code that perform predefined tasks and they're universally accepted. In simple terms, rather than creating custom-made code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you will be able to "call" some module which is already available for this particular task and use just several lines of program code. Due to this, your script will be executed much more rapidly as it is much smaller. Employing modules will also make your script easier to modify due to the fact that you will have to browse through a smaller amount of program code. In case you wish 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 Shared Hosting

More than 3400 Perl modules are readily available if you buy any of our Linux shared hosting packages. You are able to employ as many as you need and we have made sure that we have all the preferred ones, plus many more that are not used that much, but might be a prerequisite for some third-party web application that you need to use or for a custom-made script to work properly. LWP, URI, GD, CGI::Session and Image::Magick are just a couple of examples of the modules you'll be able to access. You'll be able to see the whole list in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel along with the path that you need to set in your scripts, so that they can use the module library. With our shared plans, you are able to use any type of Perl-based script without any limitations.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Every single semi-dedicated server that we provide will allow you to employ any Perl-based web app that you wish, regardless if you have created it yourself or if you've downloaded it from some third-party site. In either case, it'll work perfectly regardless of the modules it needs since we have a large library which contains more than 3400 different modules. The full list can be found in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to take care of the semi-dedicated server accounts. In addition to the list, you can also find the directory path to the modules, so as to know what you have to add in your scripts in order for them to connect to the modules. Examples of what we have are URI, DBD::mysql, Image::Magick and LWP and we supply such a large number of modules to ensure that any script will run regardless of its specifications.
