Python is a popular general-purpose programming language, that is designed for the creation of various applications, including CGI scripts and web software. What makes it preferred by computer programmers is that it features clear syntax and also it works with modules - pieces of code that include some subroutines and do specific tasks. The usage of modules will save you plenty of time and effort since you can simply "call" a module inside your script, instead of writing all of the program code for this particular attribute. Python is used for various software programs like online games, content management systems, database administration systems, RSS readers, text and data processors and many more. Every Python-based script could be included in a site which is written in another programming language.

The mod_python module for Apache web servers is available on our cloud web hosting platform, so the Python code will be interpreted and run without a problem. It's up to you if you'll use only your own personal code, only third-party code that you find on other websites or you'll use ready-made modules and implement them in your code for a tailor-made solution that can fully match all of your requirements in terms of what options your website has to provide to the users.
