Hello, osqa can work on a subdomain, in fact that's what we have. This Q&A site runs on meta.osqa.net.
Just how you can associate the subdomain with the web application process depends on the tools your hosting provider gives you to configure the subdomain. We directly access the apache server configuration, but you may not have access to those files.
Do they support
fast_cgi? Could you clarify in your question?

Hey there, I was reading the features of justhost, and aparently it does not support python at all. Osqa is "independent" from the mode on which the app is served, either by `mod_wsgi`, `mod_python` or fast cgi, even if in the future someone invents a new method of serving python based webapps, chances are that osqa (django) will support it.
So, if you're interested in running osqa, I would go for Evgeny's advice, and give it a try with webfaction, is a host very popular between pythonists, and the host is great just by itself, it gives you a lot of control over everything (it even allows you to install your own stuff there) and is not expensive, monthly should cost around $10, but if you opt for paying one year or more in advance you can have great discounts.
If you opt by that, just drop us a message here or on the users list (email@example.com) and we'll be eager to help you.

Thanks for your reply. It is bit hard for me to change my hosting over to webfaction. I was wondering whether i could do below.
lets stay my primary domain is hosted through justhost.com. I want to have a subdomain called forum.mydomain.com. Is it possible to point forum.mydomain.com through CNAME to webfaction hosting? so the forum will be run on webfaction hosting? however this should be transparent to users.
for an example, user go to mydomain.com. We have a linked called forum. Upon clicking on it, user will be directed to forum hosted with webfaction. And we put a home link in forum to that user can come back to mydomain.com
Let me know. I really want to get OSQA running with my domain :).
