Perl is a very popular web-oriented programming language, that's designed to make CGI scripts and various applications. It is really useful owing to the fact that you don't need to create the very same code again and again so as to get some action executed a couple of times, but you're able to apply modules. These are pre-defined subroutines or groups of activities which can be called and executed within a script. In other words, you're able to add just a reference to a particular module inside your code instead of using the entire module code over and over again. In this way, your script will be shorter, therefore it'll be executed a lot faster, not mentioning that it'll be much simpler to maintain or modify. In case you want to take advantage of a third-party ready-made Perl script instead of creating your own, it'll probably need specific modules to be present on the website hosting server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Cloud Hosting

All our cloud plans include more than 3400 Perl modules which you can work with as a part of your CGI scripts or web-based applications. They contain both widely used and less popular ones, in order to provide you with a choice regarding 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 a lot more. The whole list is available in the Server Information section of our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is provided with all of the shared accounts. In the same location, you'll find the Perl version which we have along with the path to the modules that you will have to use in your scripts so as to call a particular module from the library.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you need to employ a Perl-based web app or CGI script, you'll be able to use 3400+ different modules that can be found on our cloud hosting platform and are a part of each semi-dedicated server we offer. You'll be able to see the whole list whenever you want using your Hepsia Control Panel alongside the folder path required for your scripts to access the modules. We realize the fact that some third-party applications might need modules which aren't very popular so as to perform efficiently, hence the large amount that we have installed on our end. URI, LWP, DBD::mysql and Image::Magick are among the modules that you'll be able to use with your Perl apps no matter the package deal that you pick.
