Perl is a very popular web-oriented computer programming language, that is designed to make CGI scripts and many different apps. It's very useful because you do not have to produce the same program code again and again so as to get some process executed a couple of times, but you will be able to work with modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or sets of activities which can be called and executed within a script. That is to say, you are able to include just a reference to a particular module in your code as an alternative to using the entire module code over and over again. This way, your script will be shorter, therefore it shall be executed a lot faster, not mentioning that it will be much simpler to maintain and / or modify. In case you'd like to use some third-party ready-made Perl script rather than creating your own, it'll probably need specific modules to be pre-installed on the website hosting server.

The whole list is available in the Server Information area of our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which is provided with all the shared accounts.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With over 3400 Perl modules pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, you can manage any script app created in this programming language without a problem whatever the semi-dedicated server plan that you select. The aforementioned is valid for both pre-made applications that you get online and for custom-built ones which you write. We provide such a multitude of modules for two reasons - first, to provide you with different options in respect to what kind of features you are able to add to your applications and sites and second, to guarantee that in case you want to employ a ready script, it will run appropriately regardless of what modules it will require. Because of this, some of the modules inside our library are very popular whereas others are used very rarely. You will see a list of all modules inside your website hosting Control Panel along with the access path which your scripts will need in order to use these modules.
