Perl is a well-liked scripting language that's designed to build various web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. Among the features that distinguish it from other programming languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl code which execute predefined jobs and they're widely accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to 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" a module which is already available for this particular process and use only a couple of lines of code. As a result, your script will be executed faster because it is smaller. Using modules will, in addition make your script much easier to change considering that you'll have to browse through a smaller amount of code. If you intend to use Perl on your website, you need to make sure that the necessary modules can be found on your server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Hosting

When you buy one of the hosting that we offer, you'll receive access to a large library of more than 3400 Perl modules that are already installed on our cloud server platform. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to go to the Server Information area where you can easily see the whole list. Part of them are more popular than others, yet we have such a large number since we realize that if you employ an app from some third-party website, it may have specific prerequisites as to what modules should be set up on the server or it will not work properly. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are some of the modules that you are able to access and take advantage of on your websites.
