Perl is a popular scripting language which is designed to build various web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. One of the features which differentiate it from many other languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl code which execute predefined tasks and they're universally accepted. In simple terms, rather than generating tailor-made code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you are able to "call" some module that already exists for this specific process and use just a few lines of code. Consequently, your script shall be executed a lot quicker because it'll be smaller. Using modules will, in addition make a script easier to edit considering that you'll need to search through much less program code. If you want to use Perl on your site, you have to ensure that the needed modules are present on the server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Hosting
If you buy one of the shared hosting plans that we supply, you'll have access to a rich library of over 3400 Perl modules that are already installed on our cloud server platform. When you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to go to the Server Information area where you can easily see the complete list. Part of them are more common than others, yet we have such a large number as we realize that when you employ an app from a third-party website, it could have specific requirements as to what modules need to be set up on the server or it may not work appropriately. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are among the modules that you're able to access and take advantage of on your websites.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you would like to work with a Perl-based web application or CGI script, it shall be possible to use 3400+ different modules that can be found on our cloud hosting platform and are a part of every semi-dedicated server which we offer. You will be able to see the whole list at any time using your Hepsia Control Panel alongside the folder path required for your scripts to access the modules. We recognize the fact that some third-party programs might require modules which are not popular to work efficiently, hence the large amount we've installed on our end. URI, LWP, DBD::mysql and Image::Magick are some of the modules that you will be able to use with your Perl apps no matter the package that you opt for.
