Perl is a popular scripting language that's designed to make different web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. One of the options which distinguish it from many other languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl code which execute predefined jobs and they are universally accepted. Basically, rather than generating tailor-made program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you are able to "call" some module that is already available for this specific job and use just a few lines of code. Due to this, your script shall be executed a lot faster as it will be much smaller. Using modules will also make a script much easier to modify since you will need to browse through a smaller amount of code. In case you want to use Perl on your site, you need to ensure that the mandatory modules are available on the server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Hosting
When you acquire one of the shared hosting plans
that we offer, you will receive access to a rich library of more than 3400 Perl modules that are already set up on our cloud server platform. Once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you're able to go to the Server Information area where you can easily see the entire list. Some of them are more common than others, however we have such a large selection as we realize that if you employ an app from a third-party website, it may have certain requirements as to what kind of modules have to be present on the server or it might not work appropriately. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are among the modules that you will be able to access and employ on your websites.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers
With more than 3400 Perl modules pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, you will be able to manage almost any script app developed in this programming language without a problem regardless of the semi-dedicated server
package that you choose. The aforementioned is valid for both pre-made applications which you discover online and for custom-built ones that you develop. We supply such a multitude of modules for two reasons - first of all, to offer you different options in respect to what kind of functions you are able to add to your applications and websites and secondly, to guarantee that in case you wish to use a ready script, it will run properly regardless of what modules it will require. For this reason, many of the modules in our library are quite popular while others are employed very rarely. You will find a list of all the modules in your hosting Control Panel along with the access path which your scripts will need to use these modules.
