Perl is a preferred scripting language that's employed to make various web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. Among the attributes that differentiate it from other languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl code that do predefined tasks and they are universally accepted. Basically, rather than generating custom code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you can "call" a module which already exists for this specific job and use only several lines of program code. Consequently, your script shall be executed a lot faster as it is smaller. Using modules will, in addition make a script much easier to edit due to the fact that you will need to browse through a smaller amount of code. If you wish to use Perl on your website, you need to make sure that the required modules can be found on your server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Hosting
When you purchase one of the Linux hosting service that we supply, you will get access to a large library of over 3400 Perl modules which are already installed on our cloud server platform. After you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to visit the Server Information section where you can check the complete list. Part of them are more common than others, yet we offer such a large number as we realize that in case you employ an app from some third-party website, it may have specific requirements as to what kind of modules have to be set up on the server or it will not work properly. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are among the modules that you'll be able to access and take advantage of on your sites.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to see the whole list whenever you want through your Hepsia CP along with the folder path necessary for your scripts to access the modules. We acknowledge the fact that some third-party apps might require modules that are not really popular in order to work properly, hence the large number we've installed on our end. URI, LWP, DBD::mysql and Image::Magick are among the modules that you shall be able to use with your Perl apps regardless of the plan you select.
