Perl is a preferred scripting language which is which is used to create various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. One of the attributes that differentiate it from other languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl code which execute predefined jobs and they're universally accepted. In simple terms, instead of generating tailor-made program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you're able to "call" a module that already exists for this specific task and use just a couple of lines of code. Due to this, your script will be executed more rapidly as it'll be smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make a script simpler to modify since you'll have to search through much less code. If you wish to use Perl on your site, you need to ensure that the necessary modules can be found on the server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Web Hosting
If you acquire one of the shared web hosting plans
that we provide, you'll receive access to a large library of more than 3400 Perl modules that are already set up on our cloud server platform. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to visit the Server Information section where you could see the complete list. Some of them are more popular than others, yet we offer such a large selection as we're aware that if you employ an app from some third-party site, it may have specific prerequisites as to what kind of modules need to be installed on the server or it may not work appropriately. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are some of the modules that you can access and use on your sites.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers

that we provide allows you to use any type of Perl-based web application that you'd like, no matter if you've created it yourself or if you've downloaded it from some third-party site. In either case, it will function properly irrespective of the modules it requires since we have a massive library that consists of more than 3400 different modules. The complete list can be found in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that's used to manage the semi-dedicated server accounts. Along with that list, you can also see the directory path to the modules, in order to know what you need to include in your scripts in order for them to link to the modules. Some examples of what we have are URI, DBD::mysql, Image::Magick and LWP and we have such a multitude of modules to ensure that almost any script can run regardless of its specifications.
