Perl is a well-liked web-oriented computer programming language, that's designed to create CGI scripts and also many different apps. It's very handy owing to the fact that you do not need to write the very same code over and over again so as to have some process executed several times, but you will be able to work with modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or groups of functions that can be called and executed inside a script. That is to say, you are able to add only a reference to a specific module within your code rather than using the whole module code over and over again. In this way, your script will be shorter, which means that it will be executed more rapidly, not mentioning that it'll be easier to maintain and / or modify. If you would like to take advantage of a third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to writing your own, it will most likely need particular modules to be pre-installed on the hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Hosting
When you get one of the shared hosting plans
that we offer, you'll receive access to a large library of over 3400 Perl modules that are already set up on our cloud server platform. Once you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you're able to go to the Server Information area where you could see the complete list. Some of them are more common than others, however we have such a large number since we are aware that in case you employ an application from a third-party website, it may have certain requirements as to which modules should be installed on the server or it will not function properly. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are among the modules that you are able to access and employ on your websites.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each semi-dedicated server
that we provide allows you to use any kind of Perl-based web app that you would like, regardless if you've created it yourself or if you've downloaded it from some third-party website. Either way, it will run perfectly whatever the modules it requires as we have a massive library that contains over 3400 different modules. A full list is available in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that's used to manage the semi-dedicated server accounts. Along with the list, you'll also see the directory path to the modules, in order to know what you should include in your scripts in order for them to link to these modules. A few examples of what we have are URI, DBD::mysql, Image::Magick and LWP and we have such a multitude of modules to ensure that any type of script can run regardless of its requirements.
