Perl is a well-known scripting language that is designed to create different web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. Among the features which distinguish it from many other programming languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl code that do predefined tasks and they are commonly accepted. Basically, instead of generating tailor-made code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you're able to "call" a module which already exists for this specific task and use only a few lines of program code. This way, your script will be executed much more rapidly as it is much smaller. Using modules will also make your script simpler to modify because you will have to search through much less program code. If you wish to use Perl on your site, you need to make sure that the required modules can be found on your server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With more than 3400 Perl modules pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you can manage virtually any script app written in this programming language without a problem regardless of the semi-dedicated server package that you choose. The aforementioned applies for both pre-made applications that you find online and for custom-made ones that you create. We offer such a multitude of modules for two reasons - first of all, to offer you different options in respect to what kind of functions you'll be able to add to your apps and sites and secondly, to guarantee that if you'd like to work with a ready script, it will run properly regardless of what modules it will need. For this reason, many of the modules included in our library are very popular while others are employed very rarely. You'll see a list of all modules within your website hosting Control Panel along with the access path that your scripts will need in order to use the modules.
