Whatever type of business you run, and whatever the nature of your existing website, expansion is the secret to success. Search engine crawlers and your visitors both love a diverse collection of content, but installing, configuring, and maintaining new applications on your site can be time-consuming and complex. Most webmasters understand the need for a blog, message board, streaming video, and interactive features, but lack the time or expertise to set them up.
Softaculous is an automated script installer that can be used to install a wide range of applications. From message boards to content management systems (CMS), Softaculous makes it easier to explore solutions, find the one you need, and launch it with just a few clicks. Distinctively, though, Softaculous includes additional features that can make finding applications and managing them long-term more convenient.
Read on to learn why you should use Softaculous to install applications on your web hosting account – even if you have the expertise to manually install them yourself.
Use Softaculous to find your ideal application
From your web hosting control panel, you can open Softaculous to install a new application. Instead of working with source code, configuring complex settings, and uploading files manually, you can fill out a web-based form and Softaculous will deploy the script for you.
However, Softaculous is more than a tool for installing new applications. In fact, it provides full life cycle management for your application.
Before you decide which application to install, you can use Softaculous to explore the different options available to you. The database of software is searchable, or it can be browsed by categories to find content management systems, message boards, social network platforms, and more. Within each category, you can view user-generated ratings, giving you an instant snapshot of what other webmasters think about each application.
In addition, Softaculous provides built-in links to demo versions of all available scripts. You can try software first-hand to decide if it will work for your website and your requirements.
Softaculous provides life cycle application management
Once you have made your decision and installed your application, Softaculous remains an essential tool. The system will notify you via email whenever software updates are available, helping you keep up to date with the latest new features and security patches. You can concentrate on working with your application, knowing that you will be alerted when it is time to update.
Finally, Softaculous offers integrated application backups. By hitting the “All Installations” button, you can see a list of every application you have installed. Then, under the “Options” heading, hit “Backup” to create a complete replication of your application files and database.
Softaculous is a powerful script installer, but it is also a multifunctional tool that you will use before, during, and after the installation process.
