I’m happy to announce that today WeHostFree is offering Softaculous on every single hosting plan; Free or Paid!

What is Softaculous? Softaculous is a wonderful option you can locate in your control panel. It allows you to install software onto your website with the click of a button! You no longer have to fear installing WordPress. Simply log into your control panel and click the icon.

Softaculous currently offers over 300 programs you can install on your website! Whether you’re looking for a shopping cart, forum, blog, etc. I’m sure you’ll be able to find it!

Before Softaculous, we were assisting users with their WordPress installations, so this should make things much easier for everyone. We still are offering WordPress support, so should you run into any problems we can offer support starting at $9.99.

To browse the catalog of software, log into your control panel, scroll all the way down to the bottom, and click the Softaculous icon.

Here is a screenshot:

    Softaculous makes just about any install simple. I won’t use a host that does not offer it. I never have the time to dig through stuff that I want listed on my site, Softaculous works great and I have yet to find anything better to use.

    Wow, that sounds like a really powerful bit of kit. I’ve never really struggled with managing my installs in the past, but automation is a very attractive option for saving time.

      Automation is great for people who are not good at doing their own installations. It’s quick and easy to do. I like when things are made easier for our people to use.

    Anything that makes it easier to install software apps easier is a bonus in my books. If you visit the Softaculous website they have quite a few applications available for installation. Everyone should be able to find something they use.

    Braeden, I think that you are right. At least doing it this way you are sure to get a seamless install without the problems that sometimes arise when permissions get messed up.

    300 programs to choose from seems like a pretty good deal. I haven’t been to their website but I may check it out. If it really makes it easy to install software it’s what I need. I’m just not good at problems that arise when downloading.

    • Abigail

      It really does make it just that easy. A simple click to install, instead of messing around with read/write permissions, or other errors that can slow you right down when setting up a website.

      • Justin

        There’s a certain satisfaction to be had from doing it all yourself, and it can be kind of fun too. But you are certainly more prone to making mistakes than this software will be!

    I love working with Softaculous, it just makes my life easier because it works so seamlessly and means that I don’t have to commit time to making these changes myself.

    • Puhlease

      I think that’s why these things get designed. There’s a software developer somewhere who just got sick of having to run support for people who couldn’t do it, and so they got started (or were commissioned) to produce this.

  7. PEvans

    I haven’t used Softaculous before so I have no experience with it. How easy is it to use? Anything that can help cutdown on the install time for software is a fine by me, especially when it is free!

  8. Giselle

    Great deal! Softaculous is a really good auto installer and has quite a few benefits in that it does all the install for you at the click of a button and you can go on and do other things at the same time.
