Perl is a preferred scripting language that's designed to build different web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. One of the characteristics that differentiate it from other languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl code which perform predefined tasks and they're widely accepted. In simple terms, instead of creating custom code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you'll be able to "call" a module which already exists for this particular process and use just a few lines of program code. Therefore, your script will be executed more rapidly since it will be much smaller. Using modules will, in addition make the script simpler to modify considering that you will need to go through much less code. In case you wish to use Perl on your website, you have to make sure that the needed modules are available on the server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Cloud Website Hosting
All our Linux cloud website hosting plans come with over 3400 Perl modules which you are able to benefit from as a part of your CGI scripts or web-based apps. They contain both widely used and less popular ones, in order to supply you with different options with regard to what features you can add to your sites. Some examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and a lot more. The complete list accessible in the Server Information area of our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the shared accounts. In the same place, you will find the Perl version that we have and the path to the modules that you will need to use inside your scripts to call a specific module from our library.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide will allow you to work with any type of Perl-based web app that you'd like, no matter if you have made it yourself or if you've downloaded it from a third-party site. In either case, it will run properly whatever the modules it requires because we have a massive library which contains more than 3400 different modules. A complete list is accessible in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel that is used to manage the semi-dedicated server accounts. Along with that list, you can also find the directory path to the modules, in order to know what you need to include in your scripts in order for them to link to the modules. Some examples of what we have are URI, DBD::mysql, Image::Magick and LWP and we offer such a large number of modules to make sure that almost any script will run regardless of its specifications.
