Even easier installation and update of blog, CMS, eShops, forum, gallery
What is Fantastico?
Fantastico De Luxe is one of the most common application autoinstaller on cPanel servers. It allows quick install for applications like blogs, forums, shopping carts, CMSs, galleries and more. It is usually bundled with the cPanel and most of the hosting providers include it in their management options mainly because it is the most readily available option.
Why SiteGround now offers Softaculous instead?
As it often turns out the easiest and the most massive solutions are not always the best. So after several issues we had with Fantastico (read blog post), we looked for alternative solutions and found that Softaculous does all the Fantastico do and a little more:
The installation through Softaculous is as easy as the one through Fantastico
Softaculous provides 150 more applications than Fantastico for auto installation
Softaculous updates the versions used for auto install much faster than Fantastico
Softaculous support attends to problems much faster than Fantastico team
That is why we decided to switch and provide a better auto-installer to our customers.
Softaculous Auto-installer is included in the SiteGround web hosting package. You can install any of the tools included previously in Fantastico and many more now to create your website. For your website we will provide you with a reliable, secure and fast hosting solution.
