Perl is a very popular web-oriented programming language, that's designed to create CGI scripts and various apps. It's really convenient owing to the fact that you don't have to generate the very same program code again and again to get some action executed more than once, but you will be able to work with modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or groups of functions that can be called and executed within a script. That is to say, you are able to include just a reference to a given module inside your program code rather than using the entire module code over and over again. In this way, your script will be shorter, thus it shall be executed quicker, not mentioning that it will be easier to maintain or modify. If you want to take advantage of a third-party ready-made Perl script instead of writing your own, it will probably need particular modules to be pre-installed on the hosting server.

With over 3400 Perl modules pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, you will be able to run any kind of script application created in this programming language without any problems irrespective of the semi-dedicated server package that you select. The aforementioned is valid for both pre-made applications which you get online and for custom-made ones that you write. We have such a large number of modules for two reasons - first of all, to provide you with different options in respect to what kind of functions you are able to add to your apps and sites and second, to guarantee that when you want to use a ready script, it'll run properly regardless of what modules it will need. That's why, most of the modules inside our library are quite popular while others are employed very rarely.
