Perl is a well-known scripting language which is used to build various web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. Among the characteristics that differentiate it from many other languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl code which complete predefined jobs and they're universally accepted. Basically, as an alternative to writing custom-made program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you can "call" some module that is already available for this particular process and use just several lines of program code. Thus, your script shall be executed a lot quicker as it is smaller. Using modules will additionally make a script simpler to edit as you will have to search through much less program code. If you would like to use Perl on your website, you should ensure that the mandatory modules are available on the server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Website Hosting

When you want to use Perl-based applications on your sites - ready-made from a third-party website or custom-built ones, you can reap the benefits of our huge module library. With more than 3400 modules installed on our custom cloud hosting platform, you'll be able to run any kind of script, whatever the shared website hosting plan that you select. Once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the accounts, you'll be able to see the whole set of modules that we have as well as the path that you should include to your scripts so they will access these modules. As we have quite a massive library, you will find both widespread and seldom used modules. We prefer to be prepared, so in case a third-party script that you need to work with requires a module which isn't very popular, we will still have it here.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each and every semi-dedicated server that we supply allows you to use any Perl-based web app that you'd like, no matter if you've made it yourself or if you've downloaded it from some third-party site. In either case, it will work perfectly irrespective of the modules it needs since we have a rich library which includes over 3400 different modules. A full list is available in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to take care of the semi-dedicated server accounts. In addition to that list, you will also find the directory path to the modules, so as to know what you have 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 have such a large number of modules to make sure that any type of script can run regardless of its requirements.
