Perl is a widespread programming language and among its main pros is that it works with the so-called modules - short bits of program code which include subroutines and execute different tasks. The beneficial side of working with modules is that you do not have to create custom-made program code or add the entire code for a particular action every time it needs to be performed. Instead, you will be able to include just a single line in your Perl script that calls a specific module, which in turn will execute the needed action. Not only will this result in shorter and improved scripts, but it will allow you to make changes a lot quicker and easier. In case you are not a programmer, but you would like to start using a Perl app which you've found on the worldwide web, for example, it's likely that the application will need some modules to be already set up on the website hosting server.

The whole list accessible in the Server Information section of our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, that is provided with all shared accounts.

With more than 3400 Perl modules pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you can manage any kind of script application developed in this programming language without any problems regardless of the semi-dedicated server plan that you select. The aforementioned is valid for both pre-made apps that you get online and for custom-made ones that you create. We supply such a large number of modules for two reasons - first, to provide you with different options in respect to what characteristics you are able to add to your apps and websites and second, to guarantee that if you want to employ a ready script, it'll run properly no matter what modules it will need.
