Perl is a widespread web-oriented computer programming language, which is employed to generate CGI scripts and many different apps. It's very convenient for the reason that you don't need to submit the same program code time and again to have some action executed several times, instead you will be able to work with modules. They're pre-defined subroutines or groups of functions which can be called and executed in a script. That is to say, you're able to add just a reference to a given module inside your code instead of using the entire module code again and again. In this way, your script will be shorter, which means that it shall be executed quicker, not mentioning that it will be much easier to maintain and modify. If you would like to take advantage of a third-party ready-made Perl script rather than writing your own, it will most likely need particular modules to be present on the hosting server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Hosting

All our Linux hosting packages include more than 3400 Perl modules that you will be able to benefit from as part of your CGI scripts or web-based applications. They contain both widely used and less popular ones, to offer you a choice with regard to what features you will be able to add to your websites. Several examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and a lot more. A full list can be found in the Server Information area of our custom-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, that comes with all of the shared accounts. In the same location, you will find the Perl version which we have along with the path to the modules that you will have to use within your scripts in order to call a given module from the library.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With more than 3400 Perl modules pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to run any script app written in this programming language without any problems regardless of the semi-dedicated server package that you select. This is valid for both pre-made applications which you get online and for custom-built ones that you create. We supply such a large number of modules for a couple of reasons - first, to provide you with a choice in respect to what functions you'll be able to add to your apps and websites and second, to make sure that when you want to work with a ready script, it'll run appropriately regardless of what modules it will need. For this reason, most of the modules in our library are very popular whereas others are employed very rarely. You can find a list of all modules inside your hosting Control Panel together with the access path which your scripts will need to use the modules.
