Python hosting features and functions

  • Open source: Python is completely free to use and the source code is publicly available.
  • Programmer-friendly: The syntax is relatively simple to code and read compared to some other languages, and it is a high-level programming language.
  • Portable: The language is cross-platform, so can run on multiple platforms like Linux, Windows, macOS, and so on.
  • Extensive standard library: A Python download comes with a large library of common facilities and functions for various purposes, such as regular expressions, MySQL databases, and document generation.
  • Interpreted language: Unlike with C++ or Java, you don’t have to compile Python because the source code is converted into bytecode internally. Python is also executed line by line, making code easier to debug.
  • Object-oriented: As opposed to procedure-oriented languages, Python focuses on objects which combine data and functionality. However, it also supports procedure-oriented programming.
Python and PHP are two of the most popular programming languages when it comes to web development. The languages are used for similar purposes and, similarly to Python hosting services, there are also powerful PHP web hosting packages available. However, there are some distinguishing factors and reasons why Python may be better suited to your needs. For example, coding with Python is clearer and cross-platform compatible. Because it is object-oriented, it’s more readable, and its syntax is simpler, it can be easier to write good code in Python. The standard library in Python is also very strong compared to PHP’s, featuring well-developed library support for a wide array of applications. Furthermore, web hosting with Python is just one of its possibilities. Whereas PHP is primarily intended for creating web pages, Python has many more use cases – from app development to machine learning.
For web development hosting, Perl and Ruby are more directly comparable to Python, since they are all open source, general purpose programming languages. However, each one has distinct characteristics. Deciding whether to go for Perl, Ruby, or Python hosting may therefore depend on your individual preferences. For example, the nature of the languages themselves differ. Perl’s procedural syntax is complex but can be effective in the right hands, while Python’s code is much cleaner and easily understandable. Meanwhile, Ruby is similarly easy to read, but is also highly flexible, giving you plenty of creative options. However, Python is more direct, with only one correct way to do things, which can make debugging faults much quicker and easier than Perl and Ruby. Beyond the language itself, the strength of the community behind the languages plays a role. Both Python and Ruby have large and active communities to offer support, whereas there is less support and information available for Perl since it isn’t as popular.
