Perl is a popular programming language and one of its major pros is that it supports the so-called modules - short pieces of code which contain subroutines and do multiple tasks. The convenient side of employing modules is that you will not need to write custom program code or include the entire code for a particular action whenever it needs to be executed. Instead, you will be able to add only a single line in your Perl script that calls a certain module, that consequently will execute the necessary task. Not only will this lead to shorter and optimized scripts, but it will enable you to make changes faster and much easier. In case you are not a programmer, but you'd like to use a Perl app that you've discovered on the Internet, for example, it is likely that the application will need specific modules to be already set up on your website hosting server.

Our Linux cloud hosting packages come with more than 3400 Perl modules which you will be able to benefit from as part of your CGI scripts or web-based apps. They contain both widespread and less popular ones, in order to provide you with different options with regard to what features you'll be able to add to your websites. Some examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and a lot more. The whole list can be found in the Server Information area of our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, that is provided with all the shared accounts. In the same place, you will find the Perl version that we have and the path to the modules that you will have to use within your scripts to call a particular module from the library.
