Frequently Asked Questions

What applications can I deploy or launch with Python Hosting?

Django 3, Flask, Wagtail, and more.

What is Python?

Python is a free, open-source programming language that was originally released in 1991 by the Dutch programmer Guido van Rossum. It is a highly dynamic object-oriented programming language and is used for rapid application development.

What is Python used for?

Python is often used for web development, though it has many other purposes too. It was originally designed to help with system administration, and can now be used to make applications, analyse data, and more. Python is a general purpose programming language.

What is the best development framework for Python?

The most popular Python web application frameworks include Django, Flask, Pyramid, and CubicWeb. Other frameworks that are popular amongst Python application developers include Web2py, CherryPy, and TurboGears. There is no best development framework, and choices depend on developers’ preference and purpose.

Why is Python popular?

Python is popular due to it’s user-friendly design and shallow learning curve. Despite the relatively complex tasks one can use Python for, it is easy to learn. Python is not as widely used as PHP, but it’s well-documented, and there are lots of modules available to make coding fast and fun.

Is Python used for web development?

Yes, Python is popular amongst web developers building websites. Initially, it might be more sensible to use something like WordPress or Drupal, and then code your own plugin in PHP. That will give you a significant head-start, compared to coding something from scratch.

Why is Python recommended for beginners?

Python’s syntax contains a lot of English words and is relatively easy to read, even if you don’t know how to code. It is included on Linux and Mac systems, so there’s little complexity involved in getting started. Many Python programmers begin by writing small scripts for their own computers. Python also includes a built-in web-server, so you can run a web app locally as you are developing it.

Is Python available on shared hosting plans?

Python can come with some shared hosting plans, but it isn’t a standard feature by any means. If your sole purpose of buying a hosting account is to learn Python, check the fine print very carefully before you sign up.

What do I need to look for in Python hosting?

When looking for Python hosting, find a plan that specifically mentions Python in the technical specifications; don’t assume that it’s provided, because not all hosts offer it. A VPS or a dedicated server is a safe bet. Additionally, make sure that you have the version, modules, and libraries you need because different versions of Python aren’t fully compatible.

What is mod_python?

In basic terms, mod_python is a module within Apache that allows Python code to run on the web server. This is one of the most efficient ways to run Python. mod_python servers as an integrator of Python with the web server and was written by Aaron Watters.

What is a Python module?

A Python module is a script that allows you to complete a specific task. A package contains a bundle of modules and a file named __init__.py. You can download packages from the PyPI repository, and your host will already have some modules installed that you can use. However, some hosts will refuse to install modules on demand. Check the fine print in your host’s Terms of Service if this could be an issue for you.

What are the alternatives to Python?

For writing web applications, the two most popular alternatives are PHP and Ruby. For desktop utility scripting, you could try Ruby, Perl, or Bash. Other alternatives include Java (object-oriented language), NodeJS, and Scala (also object-oriented).

Should I use Python or Ruby for my project?

If you are a true beginner, and you just plan to develop one or two things, Ruby (with Rails) is probably a better choice than Python. If you are interested in experimenting and building your skills as a coder, go with Python from day one. That said, Python’s learning curve is generous and beginner-friendly, especially considering the complexity of code you can achieve and build with it.

Is it easier to use PHP rather than Python?

But more people learn PHP, because it’s more widely used and supported, thus it can be ‘easier’ to learn. In technical terms, Python is considered to be superior to PHP, and more suited to ‘serious’ projects. There are also many frameworks available for PHP (including Laravel, CodeIgniter, and Zend), and PHP allows you to work with the web’s most popular CMSs, including WordPress.

What are the differences between Python v2 and Python v3?

The code syntax is slightly different in Python 2 and 3. Some keywords are different, and some people feel that Python 3 is slightly slower, although many variables can affect speed. If you want to install an existing Python application, it’s important that your host supports the correct version, since it’s difficult to switch between the two versions.

What server is best for Python?

Popular web servers include Apache HTTPD and Nginx, while widely used application servers include Django, Tornado, Twisted, and Gunicorn. There are dozens of Python web servers/frameworks, many of which are open source. There is no one best choice for a Python server and your choice will also be determined by what you want to do with Python.

Is Python used for frontend or backend?

As a general purpose programming language, Python can be used for both front and back-end development. By front-end, we mean user-facing, and by back-end we mean core fundamentals which the user cannot see, nor directly experience. Nevertheless, Python is primarily used on the server-side, the back-end.

Can Python be used for Web applications?

Yes, Python can be used to build server-side applications. It is a common programming language choice to build web applications among web developers due to it’s relative simplicity and efficiency as a programming language. Python is also popular with Java app developers and newcomers alike.

How does Python interact with HTML?

An example interaction between the two languages would be when you perform a Google search via a HTML-built website, and that action eventually interacts with multiple servers (and Python code) to gather your desired information. HTML is a mark-up language and is used to architect a static website that displays various elements in preset arrangements, while Python is a server-side programming language.

Is Python faster than C++?

It is generally thought that C++ is faster than Python. This is understandable when we consider Python is partly written in C, and that Python needs to be compiled, while C++ is pre-compiled. However, Python is still a popular choice due to cost efficiency and simplicity as a programming language.

What companies use Python?

As a remarkably effective general puprose language, Python is used by some of the largest global companies like Instagram, Google, Spotify, Dropbox, Uber, Quora, Netflix, and Reddit. Many games have been built using Python too, including Battlefield 2, Civilization 4, and QuARK.

What is Python used for at Google?

At Google, Python as an official programming language alongside two others, Java and C++. Part of Google’s search algorithms are written using Python. More, it is used to write code to review existing code, to automate particular functions, and it is also prominent with integrations in machine learning.
