Do not pay your hosting bill. They have not delivered what they promised. Of
course, if you paid a year up front to get a deal you now understand why
this works in their favor rather than yours. I still think you have a valid
claim for a refund, though. They clearly do not know what they are doing,
even though they are minimally geared to "try and help".

Run, do not walk, to

where you will find a hosting service that does understand Python, writes
their own systems in it, and will give you non-condescending advice when you
need it.

Disclaimer: I host with them, and they are a client.
