Perl is a popular scripting language which is designed to build various web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. One of the characteristics that distinguish it from various other programming languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl code which complete predefined tasks and they are universally accepted. In simple terms, rather than generating tailor-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you are able to "call" a module which already exists for this particular job and use only a couple of lines of code. Thus, your script shall be executed more quickly as it'll be smaller. Using modules will, in addition make the script easier to edit because you will need to go through much less program code. If you want to use Perl on your website, you have to make sure that the needed modules can be found on the server.

With over 3400 modules installed on our custom-made cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to execute any type of script, regardless of the shared hosting plan that you select. When you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the accounts, you will be able to see the complete list of modules that we offer along with the path that you need to add to your scripts so that they'll be able to access these modules. Because we now have quite a massive library, you can find both widespread and seldom used modules. We prefer to be on the safe side, so in case some third-party script that you would like to use requires a module that isn't that popular, we will still have it on our end.
