Perl is a well-known scripting language that is designed to build different web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. One of the attributes that distinguish it from alternative languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl program code that execute predefined tasks and they are widely accepted. Basically, as an alternative to creating tailor-made code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you will be able to "call" a module which already exists for this specific job and use only a couple of lines of program code. Due to this, your script will be executed a lot quicker as it will be smaller. Employing modules will also make a script much easier to edit since you'll have to search through much less code. If you would like to use Perl on your website, you should make sure that the mandatory modules are available on your server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers

With over 3400 Perl modules pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you'll be able to manage almost any script application developed in this programming language without any problems irrespective of the semi-dedicated server plan that you choose. This applies for both pre-made apps which you discover online and for tailor-made ones that you develop. We offer such a multitude of modules for two reasons - first of all, to offer you a choice in respect to what functions you'll be able to add to your applications and sites and secondly, to ensure that if you would like to employ a ready script, it'll run appropriately whatever the modules it will need. That's why, some of the modules inside our library are very popular while others are employed rarely. You'll see a list of all the modules in your website hosting Control Panel along with the access path which your scripts will need to use these modules.
