Perl is a widespread web-oriented programming language, that's used to generate CGI scripts along with various applications. It's really handy owing to the fact that you do not need to generate the very same program code again and again so as to get some task executed more than once, but you will be able to use modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or sets of activities that can be called and executed in a script. That is to say, you are able to include only a reference to a given module inside your code rather than using the whole module code over and over again. In this way, your script will be shorter, thus it will be executed a lot faster, not mentioning that it will be much simpler to maintain or modify. When you would like to employ a third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to writing your own, it will probably need particular modules to be present on the website hosting server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers

Every single semi-dedicated server that we supply allows you to employ any kind of Perl-based web app that you wish, regardless if you have made it yourself or if you have downloaded it from a third-party website. Either way, it'll work flawlessly irrespective of the modules it may require because we have a rich library which contains more than 3400 different modules. A complete list is available in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage the semi-dedicated server accounts. In addition to that list, you will also find 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've got such a multitude of modules to ensure that virtually any kind of script can run in spite of its requirements.
