Python support is here!

We’re happy to announce the immediate availability of Python support across all of our Shared Linux Web Hosting Plans.  This opens the possibilities of building your web application using Django, Wagtail, Web2Py, or any other modern web framework that’s written in Python.

We currently support Python 2.7, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6, and 3.7 across all our servers.

Users can deploy a new Python application into their account by looking for the “Setup Python App” icon under the “Software” section in cPanel.   You’ll be prompted to select the Python version you wish to use, where the application should live folder wise (we do not recommend hosting them out of your public_html folder!), and the URL you want to associate with the application.

Once setup, cpanel will build a python virtual environment for you using the version you selected, and will deploy a simple “Hello World!” style python application into the folder.  You can then modify/build/create to your hearts content using python.
