Perl is a popular scripting language that's designed to build different web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. One of the attributes that differentiate it from many other languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl program code that complete predefined jobs and they're universally accepted. Basically, rather than writing custom-made program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you will be able to "call" some module that is already available for this particular process and use only several lines of program code. Therefore, your script will be executed much more quickly since it will be smaller. Employing modules will also make the script much easier to change as you will have to go through much less program code. In case you want to use Perl on your website, you have to ensure that the necessary modules are available on your server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Cloud Hosting

If you get one of the Linux cloud packages that we offer, you will receive access to a rich library of over 3400 Perl modules which are already installed on our cloud server platform. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to go to the Server Information section where you can check the entire list. Part of them are more common than others, however we have such a large number as we are aware that in case you employ an application from a third-party website, it could have certain requirements as to what kind of modules have to be present on the server or it might not function efficiently. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are on the list of modules that you'll be able to access and take advantage of on your websites.
