I am about to choose hosting provider for my Django project. I took a look on a linode and it looks very promissing. It looks like very elastic solution but in my case this might be a disadvnatage since I'm not so experienced in servers configuration (alternative provider for me has great tools to quickly do the job, but linode has more competitive power/price ratio).
Do you have some experience in linode configuration for Django projects?
EDIT: To be more precise: I am not so affraid about django packages installation but more about application server/database server/security/all that stuff configuration.
Whether you stick to the Django packages that your distribution provides (Ubuntu seems to be best) or use easy_install, Django is pretty easy to get going. The host that you're looking at, Linode, has Django setup guides for a variety of distributions. I recommend mod_wsgi with Ubuntu 10.04 from that list.
I've personally used Django on my Linode, and it works fine. Well, in fact. For your intents and purposes you can think of a Linode as a dedicated server, and it will behave entirely the same for Django.
