Perl is a well-known scripting language that's designed to build various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the options which distinguish it from other languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl code that complete predefined jobs and they are widely accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to generating tailor-made program code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you'll be able to "call" a module that already exists for this particular process and use only several lines of code. This way, your script will be executed much more rapidly as it'll be smaller. Using modules will also make your script much easier to change due to the fact that you will need to search through a smaller amount of program code. In case you wish to use Perl on your website, you should ensure that the mandatory modules are present on your server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Web Hosting
Over 3400 Perl modules are at your disposal if you obtain any of our shared web hosting
. You're able to use as many as you need and we've ensured that we offer all the preferred ones, as well as many more that are not used that much, but may be a prerequisite for a third-party web application that you would like to use or for a custom-made script in order to work effectively. LWP, URI, GD, CGI::Session and Image::Magick are just a couple of instances of the modules you'll be able to access. You're able to see the full list inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel as well as the path which you should set within your scripts, so they can use our module library. With our shared plans, you will be able to employ any type of Perl-based script without restrictions.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers
Every semi-dedicated server
that we offer will allow you to employ any kind of Perl-based web application that you would like, no matter if you have made it yourself or if you have downloaded it from a third-party site. Either way, it'll run properly irrespective of the modules it may require as we have a large library that includes over 3400 different modules. A full list is available in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that's used to control the semi-dedicated server accounts. In addition to the list, you'll also see the directory path to the modules, in order to know what you should include in your scripts in order for them to link to these 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 virtually any kind of script can run in spite of its specifications.
