Perl is a very popular web-oriented computer programming language, that is used to generate CGI scripts along with various applications. It is really useful for the reason that you do not need to produce the same program code again and again so as to get some process executed a couple of times, but you'll be able to work with modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or groups of operations which can be called and executed within a script. In other words, you can add just a reference to a given module within your program code rather than using the whole module code again and again. In this way, your script will be shorter, thus it'll be executed much faster, not mentioning that it will be much simpler to maintain and modify. In case you wish to employ a third-party ready-made Perl script rather than writing your own, it'll most likely need particular modules to be pre-installed on the hosting server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Hosting

Our hosting plans feature more than 3400 Perl modules which you're able to work with as part of your CGI scripts or web-based apps. They contain both widely used and less popular ones, so as to offer you a choice in terms of what features you'll be able to add to your websites. Several examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and many others. The full list can be found in the Server Information area of our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, that comes with all shared accounts. In the same location, you'll find the Perl version that we have along with the path to the modules that you'll need to use inside your scripts in order to call a certain module from the library.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you wish to employ a Perl-based web application or CGI script, you'll be able to use 3400+ different modules that are available on our cloud hosting platform and are a part of each semi-dedicated server we provide. You will be able to see the whole list anytime via your Hepsia CP along with the folder path required for your scripts to access the modules. We identify the fact that some third-party apps might need modules which are not very popular so as to function properly, hence the big number that we have installed on our end. URI, LWP, DBD::mysql and Image::Magick are amongst the modules that you will be able to use with your Perl applications regardless of the package you choose.
