    Question WebFaction

    Does anyone have anything to say about this company? They are offering Rails/Django/PHP shared hosting at very good prices.

    Been using them for about 6 months for svn hosting. Never had any problems with them.

    I meant - are you having mod_python enabled ?
    Many hosts provide python but they dont mention if its CGI or a mod.

    I'm pretty sure about that. Ask them to be sure : I think that you can trust them. If I remember well, 2 guys working there are in the development team (OSS) of CherryPy, the core component of TurboGears (which is btw one of the "Python on Rails" thing with django, pylons, web.py, ... ).
    Never used tough ...

    I tested them out a while ago and they were pretty good. Their control panel is pretty different (in a good way) and their support is awesome....

    I've had a couple sites hosted with them, and they are very good (reliable, fast accomodating, lots of features). My only issues have been their support hours (8am - 8pm London time, which is midnight-noon for me), and their account limits. Their control panel is a custom-built AJAX app, so is kinda cool, but somewhat awkward.

    For verification, here's a site I developed on there (it's a client's, i don't own it) - www.revisionfx.com

    Unfortunately can't give out the URL to the domain I own on there, as it's still under wraps for another one of my clients.
