    We use fantastico becuase that's what we started out with...but softaculas is looking really great because they are cheaper and I think they provide more scripts. But I don't know if their service quality and their whm software is better or not.

    Softaculous without a doubt....Fantastico is like a throwback to ten years ago.

    Softaculous is the best Auto Script Installer, IMO.

    I like Softaculous; they have a large number of scripts and they update them frequently (it seems to be more frequently than Fantastico, but I'm not absolutely certain of that).

    Never tried Softaculous before, the responses so far indicates it is great script to give a trial, BUT still comfortable with Fantastico for the time being.

    If you are just starting out you want to make sure you have everything laid out before you begin as a few aspects might cost some money or require you to sideline capital.

    First your server and control panel
    Second your Billing / automation software
    Third Independent monitoring station(s)
    Forth Credit card processors (some require you to put 500 dollars or more into your account, or have a limit on what your checking account can go below).

    If you spend some time around the forum read and doing a lot of it you've be able to put a business plan together.

    Fantastico remains the preffered choice but softaculous is beginning to gain grounds.

    You can start with softaculous since it's good and less expensive than fantastico, but you can also consider simplescripts because it's free.

    Between these two, I would certainly look at Softaculous.

    I've used Fantastico in the past and found it to be quite bloated - I am not sure how much of that has changed over the years, but looking at it again briefly it still seems sub-par compared to others.

    An alternative to Softaculous is Installatron, which I'd also rank above Fantastico.

    Fantastico used to be the defacto standard.

    Softaculous knew they would have to make a bigger and better Fantastico and they did.

    We're stuck with Fantastico on our old servers but all our new ones are deploying with Softaculous.
