GeniusHost is proud to announce that the Softaculous one-click script installer is now available on all of our shared and reseller hosting accounts powered by cPanel/WHM.
Softaculous is a great alternative to the popular Fantastico script installation program. Just like Fantastico, Softaculous provides you with a means of installing popular scripts such as WordPress and phpBB on your web-site through the cPanel web based control panel interface.
Softaculous currently supports 146 different scripts compared to Fantastico’s 50, with more being added all the time. Softaculous also provides more frequent updates than Fantastico, so you can ensure that you are always able to run the latest and greatest version of a script without worrying about security holes.
We have imported user’s existing script installations into Softaculous from Fantastico already, so you should be able to start taking advantage of Softaculous straight away. Support for Fantastico will be removed from our servers at the end of the month.
