Perl is a very popular web-oriented programming language, that is designed to set up CGI scripts and a variety of applications. It is really useful since you don't need to generate the very same code again and again so as to get some action executed a couple of times, instead you're able to apply modules. They're pre-defined subroutines or sets of tasks that can be called and executed in a script. That is to say, you are able to include only a reference to a certain module in your code instead of using the entire module code over and over again. This way, your script will be shorter, which means that it'll be executed a lot quicker, not mentioning that it'll be much easier to maintain and / or modify. If you'd like to take advantage of some third-party ready-made Perl script instead of creating your own, it'll probably need particular modules to be pre-installed on the hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Hosting
All our Linux shared hosting include over 3400 Perl modules which you will be able to benefit from as a part of your CGI scripts or web-based apps. They include both popular and less popular ones, in order to offer you a choice in terms of what functionality you're able to add to your websites. Several examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and many others. A full list accessible in the Server Information section of our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which is provided with all of the shared accounts. In the same place, you can find the Perl version that we have as well as the path to the modules that you'll have to use within your scripts to call a particular module from the library.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers
With over 3400 Perl modules pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, you will be able to manage any script application created in this programming language without a problem irrespective of the semi-dedicated server plan that you choose. This applies for both pre-made applications which you find online and for custom-made ones that you write. We provide such a large number of modules for a couple of reasons - first of all, to provide you with different options in respect to what features you will be able to add to your applications and sites and secondly, to guarantee that if you want to use a ready script, it will run properly no matter what modules it will require. For this reason, some of the modules inside our library are very popular while others are used very rarely. You'll find a list of all the modules within your web hosting Control Panel along with the access path that your scripts will need in order to use these modules.
