Perl is a widespread web-oriented computer programming language, that is used to create CGI scripts along with various apps. It's very convenient since you don't need to write the same code repeatedly in order to get some action executed more than once, but you are able to work with modules. These are pre-defined subroutines or sets of tasks which can be called and executed in a script. That is to say, you will be able to add only a reference to a particular module within your code instead of using the whole module code again and again. In this way, your script will be shorter, therefore it'll be executed quicker, not mentioning that it will be a lot easier to maintain or modify. When you'd like to employ some third-party ready-made Perl script instead of writing your own, it'll probably need certain modules to be pre-installed on the website hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting plans come with more than 3400 Perl modules which you will be able to work with as part of your CGI scripts or web-based applications. They contain both widely used and less popular ones, so as to give you different options regarding what functions you can add to your websites. Some examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and many others. The full list accessible in the Server Information section of our custom-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the shared accounts. In the same location, you can find the Perl version that we have as well as the path to the modules that you'll have to use within your scripts so as to call a particular module from our library.
