Perl is a widely used programming language and among its key advantages is the fact that it supports the so-called modules - short pieces of program code that include subroutines and do various tasks. The beneficial side of using modules is the fact that you don't have to create custom code or add the entire code for a certain action every single time it should be performed. Instead, you can include only a single line in your Perl script which calls a particular module, which consequently will execute the needed action. Not only will this give you shorter and improved scripts, but it will also allow you to make changes faster and easier. In case you are not a programmer, but you'd like to employ a Perl application which you've discovered on the Internet, for instance, it's likely that the app will require some modules to be already set up on your hosting server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Hosting

All our Linux shared hosting include over 3400 Perl modules which you are able to use as part of your CGI scripts or web-based apps. They include both popular and less popular ones, so as to give you a choice in terms of what features you can add to your sites. A couple of examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and many, many more. The whole list can be found in the Server Information section of our tailor-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, that is provided with all shared accounts. In the same location, you'll find the Perl version that we have along with the path to the modules that you will have to use within your scripts so as to call a particular module from our library.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you would like to employ a Perl-based web application or CGI script, it shall be possible to use 3400+ different modules which can be found on our cloud hosting platform and are a part of every semi-dedicated server which we provide. You will be able to see the entire list at any moment through your Hepsia CP along with the folder path needed for your scripts to access the modules. We recognize the fact that some third-party programs might need modules which aren't quite popular in order to run properly, hence the big number that we have installed on our end. URI, LWP, DBD::mysql and Image::Magick are some of the modules which you will be able to use with your Perl applications regardless of the package deal that you opt for.
