What Is a Good Fantastico Alternative?

The capable of installing more than fifty different scripts with only a single click, tens of thousands of users have benefitted from Fantastico since it was first introduced.  But what about companies looking for an application with more premade scripts or more options?  There are a lot of companies out there offering auto-installer benefits, but only a few really stand out as leaders in the industry.  In fact, as a viable alternative to a Fantastico license, there are really only two options that we would recommend.

 What Is a Good Fantastico Alternative?

The first option is a Softaculous license, which is definitely an industry leading auto-installer.  The program offers more than 200 applications that can be installed with a single click, including a variety of both paid and open source applications.  The other top option that we recommend is a program called Installatron. A Installatron license has the benefit of being an auto-installer that is not platform dependent, and it is definitely the best in its genre in this respect, working with every major control panel on the market and even providing automatic self-updates.  Both of these options are extremely feature rich and make a great alternative to Fantastico.

Auto-installer software is definitely a good investment for a web hosting provider or reseller, as it can make life much simpler for both you and your end users.  These programs make it easy to install the most commonly used applications with only a single click of the mouse.  Without an auto-installer, installing and implementing these same programs can be a very tedious, complex, and time consuming process.  Take the time to really consider the benefits of auto-installer software and whether Installatron or Softaculous may be better suited to meet your needs than Fantastico.  All three are great options, and it will certainly come down to which choice is best for you.

Thats an easy question :) the best web hosting auto-installer at the moment is Softaculous. No doubt about it.

Softaculous is the best one and the cheapest as well.

Fanatastico is oldest and most reputable hosting script auto-installer but Softacuous is really beating them for last 1-2 years. Best choice for shared hosting : Softaculous :) More frequent updates and a lot more professional.

Installatron is not bad alternative and little cheaper too. We were using it on our small VPS server.

You may try Installatron, it is working on most of the web hosting control panels.

Installatron is not bad at all and it is working with our Paralles Plesk system. So far all is running as expected.
