CPAN Mirror Network

For many years, CPAN benefitted from the mirroring of the central respository to many sites around the world. In the time of a slower global Internet, these mirrors provided most Perl users with fast access to thousands of software distributions. These days, the CPAN is backed by a CDN that performs the same job, but transparently. There is no longer a list of registered mirrors, you can just point at and go.

Thank You

We would like to thank all of the mirrors who, throughout the years, made the CPAN possible, and who helped provide this invaluable resource to the Perl community.

The master CPAN site is hosted by NetActuate in Los Angeles, California.
