Shared Host

In a shared hosting environment when running Django apps, you need to be aware of the available application memory. Unlike PHP, which is more used in a shared environment, Django websites are separate from one another in their own memory space. Since most of the Python code for your Django site is JIT compiled into Python bytecode and loaded into memory, Python web applications can take a larger amount of memory than a standard PHP application.

Python is not recommended on a Shared Host, unless your requirements are minimal, and you do not expect a speedy application. On a shared host, you are sharing CPU time with the other applications on the server, and this can at times cause slowness in your own application. Consider this when choosing a Shared host provider.
