Softaculous Has Arrived!

Dear HostNine Community:

We’re pleased to announce that we’re switching over our auto installer system from Fantastico to Softaculous. For those not in the know, Softaculous is an extremely fast auto installer for cPanel and DirectAdmin. We’re pretty happy about this change, and we think you will be too.

Some reasons why it’s an awesome product:

• 259 scripts at your disposal
• One step installation
• User ratings/reviews of different scripts
• GZip compression
• Ease of use
• Import scripts directly or from other Auto Installers
• All available Softaculous scripts have demo versions available to try out
• Fast, regular updates

Keep in mind that all your scripts installed by Fantastico will be maintained from Softaculous from now on, and imported for you during the conversion. However, if you notice installs that are missing, simply follow the following procedure and the missing install should appear:

• Login to cPanel
• Go to Softaculous
• Look at the upper right hand icon dock
• Choose the one that says “Synchronize with other Auto Installers”
• Click that icon
• Check what you want to import
• Click to import

Thanks for your time!

The HostNine Team
