Softaculous Applications

 

All Dependable Domains plans include Softaculous Applications Installer which is accessed from the cPanel control panel.

 

An application is a piece of software designed to manage, enhance, or add functionality to a web site. Examples include blogs, guestbooks, forums, image galleries, and e-commerce systems.

 

The software is installed in your hosting account as a collection of files and directories.

 

The amount of space required depends on the application, but can range from a few kilobytes to upward of 60 megabytes.

 

Many applications also require a database to store additional data. MySQL is the database system provided with Dependable Domains web hosting, and Softaculous handles the database setup and configuration.

 

More detailed information may be found on the Softaculous web site.
