Share This Article [TheChamp-Sharing]

Hostwinds offers licensing for Softaculous Instant Installer, which is a software that greatly simplifies the installation of several scripts and applications on your server.

Softaculous is available as a free or a premium installer, the free installer is limited to 55 scripts, while the premium installer has 443 scripts available.

Softaculous works on several web hosting control panels, including cPanel, DirectAdmin, Plesk, H-Sphere, ISP System, Interworx, CentOS WebPanel and Hosting Controller.

When purchasing a new Cloud Server or Dedicated Server, the option to include the Softaculous license during checkout is available.

To purchase a license at a later time, users can navigate to this link from their client area, and select the license you require.

License Types

VPS Softaculous License: This is the license to select if you have a Cloud Server

Dedicated Softaculous License: This is the license to select if you have a dedicated server.

The two licenses are not interchangeable, a VPS license will not work on a dedicated server and vice versa.

Once ordered, you will be able to set the IP address for the service you wish to apply the license to from your client area, on the Softaculous license product.

If you have not yet installed Softaculous, our support technicians will do so for you upon request via ticket.
