Fantastico Overview And How To Open Fantastico Through CPanel

Description:

Fantastico is an applications that is bundled with CPanel (usually) and offers users the ability to automatically install a wide range of different web applications like Joomla, WordPress, phpBB, etc with a few clicks. It's very easy to use, you simply scroll through a list of web applications and click on which ones you want to install onto your website. Using Fantastico you could have a blog set up in just a few clicks.

Not all web hosting companies use Fantastico so if you do want Fantastico with the web hosting you get make sure you sign up with the right one. Now most hosting plans do come with some type of script installer but I have found Fantastico to be the best by far. So if you are yet to sign up with a hosting company and you know you would like it to have Fantastico then I recommend signing up with Hostgator.

With that said here is a quick overview of Fantastico and what it does;
