Perl is a widely used programming language and one of its key advantages is the fact that it supports the so-called modules - short bits of program code that include subroutines and perform a number of tasks. The practical side of employing modules is that you do not have to create custom program code or add the whole code for a particular process whenever it has to be executed. Alternatively, you are able to add just a single line in your Perl script which calls a specific module, which consequently will execute the needed task. Not only will this result in shorter and more optimized scripts, but it'll also enable you to make changes quicker and easier. In case you aren't a programmer, but you would like to work with a Perl application which you've discovered online, for instance, it's likely that the application will need specific modules to be already set up on your website hosting server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Hosting

If you get one of the hosting plans that we supply, you'll have access to a rich library of over 3400 Perl modules that are already set up on our cloud server platform. After you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you can visit the Server Information section where you can easily see the whole list. Part of them are more common than others, yet we have such a large number since we are aware that if you use an app from some third-party site, it could have certain prerequisites as to what kind of modules need to be available on the server or it might not work appropriately. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are on the list of modules that you can access and use on your sites.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you would like to work with a Perl-based web application or CGI script, you'll be able to use 3400+ different modules which can be found on our cloud hosting platform and are a part of each and every semi-dedicated server which we provide. You will be able to see the full list at any moment through your Hepsia Control Panel alongside the folder path required for your scripts to access the modules. We identify the fact that some third-party applications may require modules which aren't really popular to operate correctly, hence the big number that we have installed on our end. URI, LWP, DBD::mysql and Image::Magick are amongst the modules that you shall be able to use with your Perl apps no matter the plan that you select.
