Perl is a very popular web-oriented programming language, that's designed to set up CGI scripts and various applications. It's really convenient considering that you don't have to produce the same program code again and again so that you can have some task executed more than once, instead you're able to apply modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or groups of activities which can be called and executed inside a script. In other words, you will be able to add only a reference to a particular module in your program code instead of using the entire module code time and time again. In this way, your script will be shorter, thus it shall be executed much faster, not mentioning that it'll be a lot easier to maintain or modify. In case you would like to use a third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to writing your own, it will probably need specific modules to be present on the hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Hosting
When you get one of the Linux shared hosting that we offer, you'll have access to a rich library of more than 3400 Perl modules that are already set up on our cloud server platform. When you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you can visit the Server Information area where you can check the entire list. Some of them are more popular than others, however we have such a large number as we're aware that if you use an app from a third-party site, it may have specific requirements as to which modules have to be available on the server or it might not work appropriately. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are among the modules that you're able to access and employ on your websites.
