I disagree with the notion that most sites don't use a CMS, particulary given the global reach of Wordpress, and the selection of Open/Closed Source CMS available, and the obviously successful business models. If you're serious about running and managing a website then a CMS is essential IMHO. If you don't want to use one the simplist way to approach the ...

I'll give my thoughts on VPS, as I have no experience in cloud. I was in the same boat as you in terms of having my shared hosting no longer being reliable in terms of performance. I had roughly 20 websites on the same account, but only a handful of ones that were more than basic html/css/javascript. I chose to get a cheap VPS(I pay $40/mo) and moved ...

I have a Webfaction account and I love it! Setting up an Django application in it is a breeze, its very simple and just works. The forums and the community is great too.

washingtonpost is a large website that runs on Django according to http://www.djangoproject.com/.

I believe the problem might be due to auto redirecting the root url ('/') or automatically setting the language, should I exclude robots somehow? Correct. Googlebot et al don't send an Accept-Language header, or accept cookies, so it'll see whatever the site defaults to without it, which would appear to be English in this case. You can verify this using ...

Yes, The Onion uses Django for the A/V Club part of their site. Apparently they are gradually migrating the whole site towards Django. They answered a whole bunch of question on reddit. Also, reddit.com which serves millions of page views each day, is written in python, but not Django. I believe they use Pylons but I could be wrong.

LAMP is a lot to take on, if your focus is Python, you might want to try CherryPy. "CherryPy is an object-oriented web application framework using the Python programming language. It is designed for rapid development of web applications by wrapping the HTTP protocol, CherryPy is the web server itself, and has a very small foot print." CherryPy official ...

Google App Engine is our preferred Django hosting solution. There is a solid helper library to deal with any inconsistencies. You get lots of hosting bandwidth/resources for free and if you set your daily billable amount to $0.00 (technically the same as free but they now have your credit card details) you get around 50% more resources. The upcoming Business ...

NASA and PBS use Django all over the place.

I suspect Django would be a great place to start, especially with the Django Book which is where I cut my teeth on using Python server side. I was very familiar with PHP and Drupal as well as a little Perl and Ruby on Rails for writing web apps beforehand but Django is extremely pleasant to use and tends to emphasize best practices. Once you've built ...

You could use Yahoo Pipes to combine the feeds into a single feed, then simply display the latest n feed items with Python or JavaScript. Mark Pilgrim's feed parser might help, as may the Django snippet to parse an RSS feed here.

IE Bug Fixes I would personally get a strong template down before working on any crazy features. Do the HTML/CSS then move on to the APPs. It might help attract good freelancers if you have everything else done.

Support for Python 2.5 has been deprecated and you should move only install version 2.7 upwards on Google Engine. These are both documented excellently at Developers Google: Install Python 2.7 on Google App Engine Django on Google App Engine

Use Ctrl+click to deselect the last item. BTW, that's the same key combo used to select multiple items in a <select> box with multiple selection enabled.

How many is a bunch of sites and how have you set up daemon mode? Initial impression would be that if hosting multiple sites that you would be worse off using embedded mode because you can't individually control number of processes for each. Thus if a site only really needed a single mutithread processes, you balloon out memory usage by number of child ...

Zend Framework has a lot of built in functions and probably the most popular

Maybe with Symfony (1.4 or 2.0). A lot of plugins (called bundles on Symfony 2) has been created. Symfony 2.0: symfony.com (bundles) Symfony 1.4: symfony-project.org (plugins) No experience with symfony payment bundles, sorry, but good for work.

I found this tutorial - http://joemaller.com/1467/django-via-cgi-on-shared-hosting/ Running Django under CGI is not impossible. It just kind of really sucks. Someone else tried it on the same host and hit a problem, but got a solution - http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3340996/hosting-django-on-a-shared-fastcgi-host Other tutorials are available ...

You need to check whether they support django or you can ask them to install it for you. Good luck

You may be best setting yourself up with a VPS, rather than plunging for shared hosting. That way you can set it up exactly how you want. VPS's can be almost as cheap as decent shared hosting. It is a little more work to set up, but there are plenty of guides online.

It turns out that I don't need to do anything special, but there is a slight twist with the urls: static content in /public/ (e.g. <mydomain>/public/foo/index.html) is served from a url missing the /public, so the example would be served as http://<mydomain>/foo/index.html. Obviously, trouble will ensue if static directories and django urls ...

If it's a Google Maps mashup most of the JS is already going to be hosted by Google. How large is your GIS dataset you're using Django for? Depending on its size you may be able to run a job to make it available as JSON, and not need for your Django to handle user requests.

I currently host a Python app on Google's App Engine and expose an API to a static JavaScript-heavy web app that runs on a cheap shared hosting account elsewhere. It works great and it's cheap to run. It looks like you can run Django on Google's App Engine too.

You can use the free BitNami Django AMI together with Amazon free tier (which gives you 1 Micro instance for free). Should we ok for development or light usage server. Disclaimer, I am part of the BitNami project, but hey, it is free :)

Google Apps supports Django, although there are slight differences that you will have to edit in your app. But (i believe) that it is free. Other than that, you will probably have to pay. Webfaction is a really good django host that is fairly inexpensive.

Just wanted to point out that BitNami now offers a cloud hosting option with on-click deployment, automated backups, ssh access, etc. http://bitnami.org/cloud
