Firstly, if you are not using SSL for all your sites, you should step it up! NameCheap's SSL certificates start at only $9. There's no excuse!
Firstly, if you have not tried Digital Ocean's SSD Virtual Servers for only $5/mo, I highly recommend them!

One thing that django’s docs fail to clearly state is that to use Template Context Processors, you need to use a RequestContext when rendering your template. If you don’t, you’ll wonder why your context processing function is not getting called.

This won’t work:

from django.shortcuts import render_to_response

def myview(request):
    return render_to_response("index.html", {})

But this will:

from django.shortcuts import render_to_response
from django.template import RequestContext

def myview(request):
    return render_to_response("index.html", {}, context_instance=RequestContext(request))
