Perl is a very popular web-oriented computer programming language, that's used to generate CGI scripts along with various applications. It is really useful as you do not have to write the same program code time and time again to have some process executed more than once, instead you are able to use modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or groups of functions that can be called and executed within a script. This means that, you'll be able to include only a reference to a certain module in your program code instead of using the whole module code again and again. In this way, your script will be shorter, therefore it will be executed a lot quicker, not mentioning that it'll be easier to maintain and modify. In case you would like to use some third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to writing your own, it will probably need certain modules to be present on the hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Hosting
All our hosting plans include over 3400 Perl modules which you're able to use as part of your CGI scripts or web-based applications. They include both widespread and less popular ones, to offer you different options with regard to what capabilities you can add to your websites. Some examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and a lot more. The full list is available in the Server Information section of our custom-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which is featured with all 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 need to use inside your scripts in order to call a specific module from our library.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers
Every semi-dedicated server that we provide will allow you to use any kind of Perl-based web app that you would like, regardless if you have created it yourself or if you've downloaded it from a third-party website. Either way, it will work flawlessly regardless of the modules it may require because we have a rich library that includes more than 3400 different modules. A complete list can be found in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel that's used to control 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. Some examples of what we have are URI, DBD::mysql, Image::Magick and LWP and we supply such a large number of modules to make sure that almost any script can run in spite of its specifications.
