What does this means ?
Most providers provides 2-3 modules, a few provides 7-8. the reason is that more modules costs more memory.

How are all those modules advantageous ?
When you install php programs, which is very common nowadays, having more modules makes the installation painless and much more likely to be supported. Also, if you develop your own programs, you have a lot more functions available right out of the box.

Yes, really all those libraries are compiled-in.
You can check the PHP-Info output.

Dedicated servers customers can request server-wide or cluster-wide installation of php modules.
