Perl is a very popular web-oriented computer programming language, which is used to create CGI scripts as well as many different apps. It is very handy considering that you do not need to write the very same code repeatedly so as to have some process executed several times, but you're able to apply modules. These are pre-defined subroutines or groups of tasks which can be called and executed in a script. This means that, you are able to add just a reference to a specific module in your code as an alternative to using the entire module code time and time again. In this way, your script will be shorter, therefore it will be executed more rapidly, not mentioning that it will be a lot easier to maintain and / or modify. When you'd like to take advantage of some third-party ready-made Perl script rather than creating your own, it'll probably need certain modules to be pre-installed on the hosting server.

Our Linux cloud website hosting services
feature over 3400 Perl modules which you're able to benefit from as a part of your CGI scripts or web-based apps.

The whole list can be found in the Server Information area of our in-house made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, that is featured with all shared accounts.

In case you want to use a Perl-based web app or CGI script, you will be able to use 3400+ different modules which can be found on our cloud hosting platform and are a part of each semi-dedicated server
we provide. You'll be able to see the entire list whenever you want through your Hepsia CP along with the folder path needed for your scripts to access the modules. We acknowledge the fact that some third-party applications could need modules which aren't really popular in order to run efficiently, hence the large number we've installed on our end. URI, LWP, DBD::mysql and Image::Magick are among the modules that you will be able to use with your Perl apps no matter the package that you select.
