  • Django

    Hi guys,

    I've just joined up and so far things are looking good!

    I would like to place my vote for Django as part of the shared cPanel offering if possible at some point.

    I realise that this is probably a fairly niche request right now, but I hope you'll keep it in mind. There are various lists of hosting providers that offer Django and I'd love to see you guys on them. Django is a great package for rapid, robust web development and it uses Python, which is a proper language. It's very fast, but easy on the resources.

    If you would consider adding it, I would recommend keeping fairly up to date with the subversion repository - they keep it in good shape and most of the tutorials are most useful for the latest version.

    Of course, I realise that I could get a VPS for use with Django, but I don't want the complexity right now.

    Thanks, guys.

    What's the security level we can expect from Django. Honestly I never heard of it.
    If it's a reliable, trustworthy and safe then i hope Webhosting UK would surely consider your appeal.

      I don't think that there's any reason to think that there would be a problem from a security point of view. It's already in use on some high-end sites.

        Django's template system is brilliant... You can design a template in HTML with some additional content tags, then inherit with another template to make modifications. It makes creating a site with a common look and feel very quick and easy.

        The Microsoft community's .Net MVC framework is suspiciously similar in a number ways.

            I really sound like a fanboy, don't I?

            Seriously, though, it's a great system. There are a lot of PHP projects that would have seriously benefited from being built using Django, instead. You end up with a much tidier project.
