GlowHost Now Offers Softaculous

After many months of searching and testing installation programs, we finally decided on what is perhaps the best script installer program available today – Softaculous. It’s powerful, easy to use, and supports all your existing scripts seamlessly. But wait… there’s more to it than just a cool name.

Imagine being able to install popular scripts and web based programs with just a few clicks, directly from your web hosting control panel. Now you can with Softaculous, available with every GlowHost web hosting account. With Softaculous, you get access to over 150 popular scripts including WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal – all available with just a few clicks.

Fantastico will no longer be supported, but your scripts will

We are no longer supporting Fantastico starting in January 2011. Even though we enjoyed Fantastico, Softaculous offers so much more to our customers. However, any script you installed with Fantastico will automatically be migrated and supported by Softaculous. Cool, isn’t it? And you don’t have to do a thing on your end except browse and install over 150 scripts on your website. Of course you don’t have to install all of them, but with so many options available to help you build a website that is better, stronger, and faster than anything else out there, GlowHost and Softaculous is a powerful combination!

Want to demo Softaculous and kick the tires a bit?

There’s a script for everybody with Softaculous and GlowHost. Before you install any of the 150+ programs with just a few clicks, login and demo any of the scripts directly from your favorite web browser.
