Perl is a very popular web-oriented computer programming language, that's employed to set up CGI scripts and also various applications. It's very practical because you don't need to submit the very same code over and over to have some action executed more than once, but you'll be able to apply modules. They're pre-defined subroutines or groups of functions that can be called and executed in a script. That is to say, you're able to include just a reference to a specific module within your code rather than using the whole module code over and over again. This way, your script will be shorter, thus it will be executed quicker, not mentioning that it will be much simpler to maintain and modify. If you'd like to employ some third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to creating your own, it will most likely need particular modules to be pre-installed on the website hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Website Hosting
When you buy one of the website hosting plans that we provide, you will get access to a large library of over 3400 Perl modules that are already set up on our cloud server platform. Once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to go to the Server Information section where you could see the entire list. Part of them are more common than others, but we offer such a large selection since we realize that when you employ an application from a third-party website, it may have specific prerequisites as to which modules have to be present on the server or it may not work efficiently. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are some of the modules that you are able to access and take advantage of on your sites.
