    Yes. Dreamhost allows you to run native code.

    However, you are only allowed a certain slice of CPU and RAM at any given time. C++ will take up a larger slice of that because of the way they have Python and the monitors configured.

    They do allow "FastCGI" to be used assuming you know how to use it correctly and don't mind the more constant CPU and RAM slice. (It isn't a really a problem if you do it correctly while still maintaining a minimum profile.) That can give a decent edge over what you'd probably get with Python doing the same thing.

    But again, this isn't about power or speed--I don't really need that. It's just about finding a comfortable language to work with when doing server-side programming. It just so happens that I am familiar with C++ and it being my favorite language and all...
    Well, I am going to have to read up a little about CGI and FastCGI.
    Although, for $9 / month, I could get a VPS... they might be more willing to allow native code, I'd think.

    If you're interested in using C++ for the web, there is a CppCMS library/application that you could look into.
    All the buzzt!
