Perl is a widespread programming language and among its main advantages is that it supports the so-called modules - short bits of program code which include subroutines and execute multiple tasks. The convenient side of using modules is the fact that you will not need to write custom program code or include the whole code for a certain action each time it should be performed. Instead, you can include only a single line in your Perl script that calls a specific module, that consequently will execute the necessary task. Not only will this result in shorter and enhanced scripts, but it will allow you to make modifications faster and easier. In case you aren't a programmer, but you would like to employ a Perl application which you've discovered on the web, for example, it's very likely that the app will require some modules to be already set up on the web hosting server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Cloud Hosting

All of our cloud plans feature more than 3400 Perl modules which you're able to benefit from as part of your CGI scripts or web-based applications. They include both widely used and less popular ones, to supply you with different options in terms of what functionality you can add to your sites. A couple of examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and a lot more. A full list accessible in the Server Information section of our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, that comes with all shared accounts. In the same place, you can find the Perl version that we have as well as the path to the modules that you will have to use inside your scripts so as to call a certain module from the library.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you wish to use a Perl-based web app or CGI script, you will be able to use 3400+ different modules that are available on our cloud hosting platform and are part of each and every semi-dedicated server which we offer. You'll be able to see the entire list at any time through your Hepsia Control Panel alongside the folder path necessary for your scripts to access the modules. We identify the fact that some third-party apps may require modules that aren't popular so as to function efficiently, hence the large number which we have installed on our end. URI, LWP, DBD::mysql and Image::Magick are amongst the modules which you'll be able to use with your Perl applications no matter the package you select.
