Perl is a well-known scripting language that's used to build different web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. Among the attributes that differentiate it from many other programming languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl program code which execute predefined tasks and they're widely accepted. Basically, as an alternative to generating tailor-made code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you will be able to "call" some module which already exists for this specific process and use just a couple of lines of code. This way, your script shall be executed a lot quicker because it is smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make a script much easier to modify as you will need to search through much less code. If you intend to use Perl on your site, you have to make sure that the needed modules can be found on your server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Hosting

When you obtain one of the Linux shared hosting that we provide, you'll get access to a large library of over 3400 Perl modules that are already installed on our cloud server platform. Once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to go to the Server Information section where you can easily see the complete list. Some of them are more common than others, however we offer such a large number because we are aware that in case you use an application from some third-party site, it may have certain requirements as to what modules should be present on the server or it might not work properly. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are some of the modules that you are able to access and take advantage of on your sites.

When you would like to employ a Perl-based web application 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 semi-dedicated server that we provide. You'll be able to see the full list at any time via your Hepsia CP together with the folder path necessary for your scripts to access the modules. We recognize the fact that some third-party programs may require modules which aren't really popular in order to run properly, 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 irrespective of the plan that you select.
