Perl is a widespread web-oriented programming language, which is designed to generate CGI scripts along with various applications. It's very practical since you do not need to produce the very same code over and over in order to get some process executed more than once, but you're able to employ modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or sets of activities that can be called and executed inside a script. That is to say, you're able to add just a reference to a certain module inside your code rather than using the entire module code again and again. In this way, your script will be shorter, which means that it shall be executed quicker, not mentioning that it'll be much easier to maintain and / or modify. In case you'd like to take advantage of a third-party ready-made Perl script instead of creating your own, it will probably need specific modules to be pre-installed on the web hosting server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Cloud Hosting

All of our cloud hosting packages feature over 3400 Perl modules which you are able to take advantage of as part of your CGI scripts or web-based apps. They contain both popular and less popular ones, in order to offer you a choice in terms of what functions you'll be able to add to your sites. A few examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and many others. A full list can be found in the Server Information area of our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the shared accounts. In the same location, you'll find the Perl version which we have along with the path to the modules that you will need to use inside your scripts in order to call a given module from the library.

A full list is available in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel that is used to take care of the semi-dedicated server accounts.
