Perl is a popular scripting language that is employed to make different web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. One of the characteristics which differentiate it from other programming languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl code that execute predefined tasks and they are universally accepted. Basically, as an alternative to creating custom-made code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you can "call" some module that is already available for this specific job and use just a couple of lines of code. Therefore, your script will be executed quicker as it will be much smaller. Using modules will, in addition make your script much easier to edit because you'll need to browse through a smaller amount of program code. In case you'd like to use Perl on your site, you have to ensure that the required modules are present on your server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Hosting

When you want to employ Perl-based apps on your websites - ready-made from a third-party website or tailor-made ones, you will be able to reap the benefits of our vast module library. With more than 3400 modules installed on our in-house built cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to manage any kind of script, whatever the shared hosting package that you pick. Once you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the accounts, you'll be able to see the full set of modules which we offer as well as the path that you should include to your scripts so they can access these modules. Because we now have quite a large library, you can find both well-liked and rarely used modules. We prefer to be on the safe side, so in case a third-party script that you need to work with needs a module which isn't very popular, we will still have it on our end.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide allows you to work with any kind of Perl-based web application that you would like, no matter if you've created it yourself or if you have downloaded it from a third-party website. Either way, it will work perfectly regardless of the modules it may require as we have a rich library that contains more than 3400 different modules. The complete list is available in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to take care of the semi-dedicated server accounts. Along with that list, you will also see the directory path to the modules, in order 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 have such a multitude of modules to ensure that any script will run regardless of its specifications.
