Perl is a preferred scripting language which is used to build various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the options which differentiate it from alternative languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl program code which perform predefined jobs and they are widely accepted. Basically, as an alternative to creating custom program code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you'll be able to "call" a module which is already available for this specific process and use just a couple of lines of code. Due to this, your script will be executed a lot faster as it'll be smaller. Using modules will also make the script easier to modify because you'll have to search through much less program code. In case you want to use Perl on your site, you have to ensure that the needed modules are available on the server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Hosting

More than 3400 Perl modules are readily available when you buy any of our Linux shared hosting packages. You are able to employ as many as you need and we have ensured that we have all of the popular ones, as well as many more that may not be used that much, but may be a prerequisite for some third-party web application that you wish to use or for a custom-made script to work effectively. LWP, URI, GD, CGI::Session and Image::Magick are just a few examples of the modules you'll be able to access. You will be able to find the list inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel as well as the path which you need to set in your scripts, so that they can use our module library. When you use our shared plans, you can work with any kind of Perl-based script without limitations.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each semi-dedicated server that we provide will allow you to employ any Perl-based web app that you'd like, no matter if you've made it yourself or if you've downloaded it from a third-party site. In either case, it'll work properly regardless of the modules it requires as we have a massive library which contains over 3400 different modules. The complete list is available in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel that is used to manage the semi-dedicated server accounts. In addition to the list, you'll also find the directory path to the modules, so as to know what you need to include in your scripts in order for them to connect to the modules. A few examples of what we have are URI, DBD::mysql, Image::Magick and LWP and we supply such a large number of modules to ensure that virtually any kind of script will be able to run in spite of its requirements.
