SimpleScripts, a one-click script installer for web hosts, has announced over
30,000 installs in its first month. Pretty impressive, considering the
stranglehold solutions like Fantastico has on the open-source market.
The system offers web hosts the ability to provide quick and easy installations
of popular applications including blogs like WordPress, photo albums
like CopperMine, online stores such as ZenCart of Magento, message
forums like phpBB, wikis like PmWiki and TikiWiki, and more) for
their clients and relieves the host of any maintenance burdens in the process.
"We maintain the entire system on our own server clusters," said Matt Heaton
owner of SimpleScripts. "We built this system to allow web hosts the ability to
offer a simple, fast and self maintained auto-installation system."
SimpleScripts is designed to work on multiple hosting platforms and as of today,
the system is compatible with CPanel, Plesk, VPS and dedicated server hosting.
Matt Heaton has integrated SimpleScripts for all of the 900,000 plus domains
hosted with his companies: BlueHost, HostMonster and FastDomain. These companies
are currently averaging over 30,000 SimpleScripts installations per month.
