Hi asshu, no it's not askbot. It's a PHP site based on Catalyst platform (based on what they say in their "about us").

2010-09-15 07:01:22 -0600 answered a question Can I install Askbot on shared hosting?

I got a similar replies from many hosts. I have tried These hosts

hostgator -I have asked these guys many a times .They have checked the Documentation of OSQA and said no on shared servers .They even said that their servers does not support some applications .

Certifiedhosting :same Reply(only on Dedicated servers)

site5 :Same reply

Pacifichost: Same reply for OSQA,shapado and askbot.I requested them to look at askbot's documentation .They looked at it said no .They said that they support mod_wsgi (or one of mod_fcgi, mod_python) .But not mongodb .

TMDhosting :Same reply . These are some of the top hosting companies and said no to stackoverflow based sites on shared hosting .

Arvixe They support mod_wsgi (or one of mod_fcgi, mod_python) .But not mongodb .

Some of the above said companies including hostgator and pacifichost firstly said that they support OSQA and askbot .Later after I purchasing it .They said No.

  • The Company who said Yes :

Webfaction.com

Update:

Hostgator guys said that they won't support mod_wsgi on shared servers : (09:36:43 AM) asshu: Do you support mod_wsgi (or one of mod_fcgi, mod_python) configuration ? (09:37:23 AM) Derrick Em: Not on the shared servers. (09:37:31 AM) Derrick Em: You would need a VPS or dedicated server to install those.
