Get a Python website in minutes

We make a normally complicated process very simple, letting you focus on creating exciting applications for your users. Launching a new Django project is a simple process taking just a couple of minutes. No need to manage a web server or maintain a Linux machine. No need to install security patches. It just works.

Your choice

We have quickstart installers for Django, web2py, Flask, and Bottle — we can also handle any other WSGI web framework that you want to use, and it's probably already installed.

Your website

Want to host your own domain at PythonAnywhere? Our Web Developer and custom accounts do that for you. And free users don't get left out — works for everyone.

Easy scaling

A $5 Hacker account at PythonAnywhere can easily support a 10,000 hit/day website. But when your site grows and you need to support 100 times that traffic, we're still there — you just need to upgrade your account.

Batteries included

With Python versions 2.6, 2.7, 3.3 and 3.4, and all the goodies you normally find in a Python installation, PythonAnywhere is also preconfigured with loads of useful libraries, like NumPy, SciPy, Mechanize, BeautifulSoup, pycrypto, and many others. Check out our full list of batteries included.

Powerful servers

PythonAnywhere runs on super-powerful servers hosted by Amazon EC2, and you can take full advantage of that. Without paying a penny, you can run simple Python programs to help you explore your ideas. For heavy-duty processing, you only pay for what you use, so you can get access to teraflops of power without needing to explain yourself to the electricity company.

PythonAnywhere makes it easy to create and run Python programs in the cloud. You can write your programs in a web-based editor or just run a console session from any modern web browser. There's storage space on our servers, and you can preserve your session state and access it from anywhere, with no need to pay for, or configure, your own server. Start work on your work desktop, then later pick up from where you left off by accessing exactly the same session from your laptop.

Coding on the go

PythonAnywhere running on an iPad

It's hard to write programs or play with ideas on the go. Because PythonAnywhere runs on our servers and displays in your web browser, you can write Python applications from your iPad, phone, or smart TV just as easily as you can from your computer. It works on the iPad, and we are in beta for Android devices.

Your files, everywhere

It's easy to get your stuff into and out of PythonAnywhere — you can upload and download files from our web UI, or bring up a command line to work with your git, mercurial or subversion projects from GitHub, Bitbucket, or from any public source code repository. With 512Mb of free disk space, you don't need to worry about running out of space. And paying users can get more space, and use scp and SFTP.

Simple automation

Use PythonAnywhere's scheduled tasks to run your Python scripts periodically. Scrape websites, archive tweets, connect back to your home automation system to turn the toaster on... the choice is yours!
