Perl is a well-known programming language and among its main pros is the fact that it supports the so-called modules - short bits of program code that contain subroutines and perform multiple tasks. The handy side of employing modules is the fact that you do not have to create custom code or include the whole code for a particular process each time it has to be performed. Alternatively, you are able to add just a single line in your Perl script that calls a specific module, that consequently will perform the necessary task. Not only will this lead to shorter and optimized scripts, but it'll also enable you to make changes faster and easier. In case you aren't a programmer, yet you'd like to start using a Perl application that you've discovered on the Internet, for example, it's likely that the app will require certain modules to be already set up on the website hosting server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Cloud Website Hosting

Our Linux cloud website hosting packages come with over 3400 Perl modules that you will be able to employ as a part of your CGI scripts or web-based applications. They include both popular and less popular ones, so as to give you a choice with regard to what functionality you'll be able to add to your sites. Several examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and many, many more. The complete list can be found in the Server Information section of our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, that comes with all of the shared accounts. In the same place, you can find the Perl version which we have and the path to the modules that you will have to use inside your scripts in order to call a given module from our library.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With more than 3400 Perl modules pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, you're able to run virtually any script app developed in this programming language without any problems regardless of the semi-dedicated server package that you pick. The aforementioned is valid for both pre-made applications which you discover online and for in-house built ones that you develop. We supply such a multitude of modules for a couple of reasons - first of all, to give you different options in respect to what functions you can add to your apps and sites and secondly, to make sure that when you want to use a ready script, it'll run appropriately regardless of what modules it requires. For this reason, most of the modules in our library are quite popular while others are used very rarely. You will find a list of all the modules inside your hosting Control Panel in addition to the access path which your scripts will need so as to use the modules.
