in reply to Perl hosting is hard to find

But ... what does "hosting" mean? Today? These days it probably does not mean providing an environment in which you can deploy your arbitrary (Perl ...) program. Your edge-case scenario is no longer the profit center, and it never again will be. The market is now dominated by customers who realize that they can "deploy their web-sites," more or less, without engaging custom programmers at all. A commercial offering which fundamentally consists of "access to a shell prompt"is no longer commercially viable – therefore, commercial providers no longer offer it. It is now possible to directly catapult into "the final goal ... a deployed web site" mostly without requiring the customer to fully engage with the underlying technology at all. Sorry to disappoint you, but ... "tens of thousands of paying customers who 'just want a web site' really don't give a damn about your language, whatever it is." Sorry. Welcome to the new world.

    Does it hurt to omit the smart quotes and tone down the “clever” formatting?   Is being wrong anonymously somehow more palatable than being wrong by name even when everyone knows your name? It doesn’t help us… so again, how on this beautiful plane of existence does it help you? Is it a game of straws upon the Camel…? What will you do with that broken animal when you get it?

    I believe that every cloud VPS provider disagrees with you on that one. Amazon sure seems to be doing quite well with AWS, for a start.

    Or have I just been tricked into feeding a troll?

      It’s a very peculiar species of troll and the completely erroneous—as you pointed out—node has received 3 naïve, or casual reader, upvotes and deserves some kind of rebuttal beyond the downvotes. Mine was personal. Yours was factual. I fear neither will matter as the real issue is compulsive and seems tied up in some sort of latent, or overt for all I know, sadomasochism. :(
