Software as a Service
Software as a service is also called SaaS. It is a way of delivering applications over the Internet—as a service. Instead of installing and maintaining software, you simply access it via the Internet, freeing yourself from complex software and hardware management.
All About Host
A host is a computer that is connected to a network. This term usually refers to a computer that is connected to TCP/IP network. It includes the Internet. Each host on a network has a unique IP address.
Dedicated Server Hosting
A dedicated server is a single computer in a network that reserves for serving the needs of the network. Such as – some networks require one computer to set aside for managing communications between all the other computers. A dedicated server is also a computer that manages printer resources.
Application Service Provider
An enterprise that delivers application functionality with associated services across a network to its multiple customers by using a rental and usage-based transaction pricing model is an application service provider (ASP).
Nowadays powerful scripting language is adapted for fast prototyping as well as for bigger projects that is why Python is widely used in web application development.
Python (programming language)
Python is a high-level programming language which is widely used for general-purpose. Its design philosophy emphasizes on code readability, and its syntax offers the facility of expressing the concepts in fewer lines of code to its programmers. This language offers construct intended to enable the clear programs on small as well as large-scale.
Python supports multiple programming paradigms which includes imperative, object-oriented, functional programming and procedural styles. It has a dynamic type system and automatic memory management too with a large and comprehensive standard library.
Python interpreters are available for installing many operating systems. It allows Python code execution on a wide variety of systems. It Uses third-party tools, like – Pyinstaller or Py2exe. Python code can be packaged into stand-alone executable programs for some of the most popular operating systems which allows the distribution of Python-based software. It is used without the installation of a Python interpreter.
CPython, is a free and open-source software. It has a community-based development model, as do nearly all of its alternative implementations. CPython is managed by the non-profit Python Software Foundation.
Top 6 Open Source Python Application Servers
Top 6 Open Source Python Application Servers are – Django, Gunicorn, Python Paste, Tornado, Twisted, and CherryPy.
Python Features and philosophy
Python is a multi-paradigm programming language. It is object-oriented structured programming. It is fully supported, and it has a number of language features too, which helps aspect-oriented programming and functional programming. It also includes meta-programming. Many other paradigms are using supported extensions. It has design by contract and logic programming.
Python uses dynamic typing with a combination of reference counting. For memory management, it uses cycle-detecting garbage collector. Dynamic name resolution is an important feature of Python. It binds method and variable names during program execution.
The design of Python offers some support for functional programming in the Lisp tradition. The language has reduce(), map() and filter() functions with comprehensions for lists, dictionaries, and sets and generator expressions. Its standard library has two modules functools and itertools. It implements the functional tools which are borrowed from Haskell and Standard ML.
