Perl is a widely used computer language, that is employed to build various web applications and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers consider it to be among the most efficient programming languages these days because it supports the usage of modules - compact pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to execute a specific task. The modules can save you time and effort and they can contribute to the quick speed of your websites since you'll be able to add only one line of code to call a given module instead of using all the program code for the task within your script. Perl is a versatile programming language primarily used for scripts, but it has been employed to create many popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Over 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you'll be able to use any of them with your scripts. A complete list is available inside the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library in your script. If third-party scripts which you need to add to your site require a specific module, for example, you won't have to worry if they will run efficiently or not. In this way, you will be able to create a dynamic Internet site and provide countless functions to your visitors.
