Web Hosting

P: n/a
Hi,

With web hosting, does the ISP you chose have to support the framework
you work with as well?

Im looking at making a site in Python, however, Im lost as to what ISPs
actually support. Some ISPs say they support Python so does that mean
if I wanted to use TurboGears It would just work anyway?

If an ISP just mentions Python support, does it mean CGI only
scripting?

I always assumed a framework was just a set of libraries you import
into your project and things just start working...like a jar file in
Java.

Thanks for your time,

We support any and every thing Python and we are a not-for-profit
cooperative. Check us out:

It at least has to support a reasonable way to deploy an application
using the said framework - now what this implies depends on the choosen
framework.

It really depends on the ISP. You have to check on case by case basis.

Java.
Things may get a bit more complicated when it comes to web applications.
FWIW, I'm not sure you can deploy any web applications in Java without a
(distinct, long-running process) application server... In the very worst
case, Python has at least CGI support (now why would anyone go for an
ISP that doesn't provide a better Python support is another question !-).

Check out http://webfaction.com... They have a one-click TurboGears
installation procedure (as well as some other frameworks) but you can
also install your own custom frameworks if they don't support it
directly.
