  • Importance of Softaculous

    I would like to know what is the significance of Softaculous? Does a web hosting plan become more efficient if Softaculous is included in it?

    Softaculous is an Auto Installer which is provided with the Linux website hosting Packages. You can install some scripts through it with a few clicks. There are more than 215 scripts available. You can build the website faster and easier. It will save your money which maybe required for web design and you can build your website by yourself.

      Hi Christina,

      I personally use Softaculous to install all of my software including forums and blogs because of the ease of use and convenience of it versus installing manually. We include Softaculous on our servers which host shared and reseller hosting customers.

        Thanks for the information. If I opt for a shared hosting plan, do I need to pay extra charges for getting Softaculous?

          No . It comes free with all shared and reseller packages. The only time you would need to pay for Softaculous yourself is if you bought a VPS (Virtual Private Server) or Semi Dedicated/Dedicated Server from us for example.

          Hope this helps.

            I would like to host a website that consists of a database of music tracks that can be downloaded. What do you suggest for me? Is a shared hosting plan appropriate or should I opt for a VPS hosting plan? Any charges for Softaculous in the VPS hosting plan?

              Hi Christina,

              If you opt for VPS hosting you will need to purchase Softaculous yourself, however there is a free version of Softaculous available that you can request our team to install for you at any time. As to whether you require shared or VPS hosting depends entirely on the amount of traffic your website receives or is expected to receive over a period of time. If you expect your site to receive a lot of traffic in the near to mid term future, it may be beneficial to purchase VPS hosting, otherwise you may want to opt for shared hosting with us.

              If you intend to purchase VPS hosting from us, as I said, Softaculous is available in both free and premium versions and the premium version costs just $12 per year for VPS servers or $75 for a lifetime VPS license (which will save you having to pay for the license each year). The monthly license is even better in the short term costing just $1.50 per month for the VPS license. More information can be found on the Softaculous website. It's worth noting the premium version allows you to install more software including WordPress, phpBB and the likes.

              If you have any further questions don't hesitate to ask .

                For your requirements, a good amount of resources will be needed and as suggested, a VPS is a better option for you. If you do not wish to pay the licensing fee of Softaculous, you can install the applications you need manually but it's recommended that you choose Softaculous with the VPS.

                      Customers always prefer to use easy scripts that also build their website. Blogs, e-commerce applications etc are most commonly used. It has become easy to install them due to the script installers. More and more users are switching to softaculous because of the number of scripts it provides and also since the scripts use latest and stable versions. It also provide you an option to migrate from other 3rd party script installers. The paid version of softaculous provides you a lot of helpful scripts.
