Perl is a popular scripting language which is designed to build various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the features that distinguish it from many other languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl program code that complete predefined jobs and they're widely accepted. In simple terms, instead of creating custom code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you can "call" a module which already exists for this specific process and use only a couple of lines of code. Thus, your script shall be executed a lot faster because it will be smaller. Using modules will also make your script simpler to edit considering that you'll have to browse through a smaller amount of code. In case you'd like to use Perl on your site, you have to make sure that the required modules are available on the server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Hosting
If you buy one of the hosting plans that we offer, you'll receive access to a huge library of over 3400 Perl modules that are already set up on our cloud server platform. Once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to visit the Server Information section where you can easily check the entire list. Some of them are more common than others, but we have such a large number as we are aware that in case you employ an application from a third-party site, it could have certain prerequisites as to what kind of modules need to be set up on the server or it may not function properly. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are on the list of modules that you can access and use on your websites.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated hosting plans feature a large selection of Perl modules that you may use with your scripts. Thus, even when you want to use an application that you have discovered online from another website, you can rest assured that it will work correctly since no matter what modules it may require, we will have them. Our collection offers over 3400 modules such as DBD::mysql, URI, LWP, XML::Parser and much more - many of them are commonly used and others not as much. We keep such a significant number to be on the safe side and to make sure that any script will run on our servers even if some module which it requires is used rarely. The complete list of modules you can use is available within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with the semi-dedicated accounts.
