Perl is a very popular scripting language which is that is used to create different web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. Among the features which distinguish it from many other languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl code which complete predefined tasks and they are universally accepted. In simple terms, rather than creating custom program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you'll be able to "call" some module that is already available for this particular task and use only a few lines of code. This way, your script shall be executed a lot quicker because it is smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make a script easier to change since you'll have to go through much less code. If you'd like to use Perl on your website, you should ensure that the necessary modules are present on the server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Hosting
In case you want to work with Perl-based apps on your websites - ready-made from a third-party website or custom-built ones, you are able to take advantage of our huge module library. With over 3400 modules set up on our custom-built cloud hosting platform, you can manage any kind of script, regardless of the hosting package that you pick. When you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the accounts, you will be able to see the full set of modules that we have as well as the path that you should include to your scripts so they'll be able to access these modules. Since we now have quite a large library, you can find both well-known and very rarely used modules. We prefer to be prepared, so in case a third-party script that you need to use needs a module that is not that popular, we'll still have it here.

All of our semi-dedicated servers feature a big selection of Perl modules which you may use with your scripts. That way, even if you would like to use an application that you've found online from a different site, you can rest assured that it'll work correctly since regardless of the modules it may need, we will have them. Our selection offers more than 3400 modules like DBD::mysql, URI, LWP, XML::Parser and many more - many of them are widely used and others not so much. We keep such a significant number to be on the safe side and to make sure that any script shall run on our machines even if some module that it requires is used extremely rarely.
