Perl is a very popular scripting language which is employed to create various web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. One of the features which differentiate it from other languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl code that perform predefined jobs and they're universally accepted. Basically, instead of writing custom code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you're able to "call" a module that already exists for this specific task and use only a couple of lines of program code. Because of this, your script shall be executed a lot faster as it is smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make the script much easier to change because you will have to browse through much less program code. In case you wish to use Perl on your website, you should ensure that the necessary modules can be found on your server.

If you buy one of the shared web hosting that we provide, you'll get access to a huge library of over 3400 Perl modules which are already installed on our cloud server platform. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can visit the Server Information section where you can see the entire list. Part of them are more common than others, however we offer such a large number because we are aware that if you employ an app from some third-party website, it could have certain requirements as to what kind of modules have to be present on the server or it may not work efficiently. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are some of the modules that you are able to access and use on your websites.
