Hi iMacX

Great questions about Python. I'm happy to help!

Currently we are running Python version 2.4.3 on our servers.

Most of our users run PHP driven scripts, we don't have too many users that actually run python. Because of this, we don't test or troubleshoot python scripts too often, and I personally am not very familiar with easy_install.

I did some research on it, and it is installed on our server, but documentation seems to show that it is installed by default. I'm not actually sure if you can use easy_install to install scripts. It appears that command line access is needed (which we do not provide).

While Python scripts can be run through the cgi-bin of Web Hosting Hub Accounts, you may be used to working with Python in a different environment.

I'm sorry but frameworks such as Django or Pylons/Pyramid are not available on our servers.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions or need further assistance.
