Free 1 Click Hosting installs included in shared hosting

At Squirrel Hosting, we try to make things as easy as possible for you to get your website online. We know many of you love scripts such as drupal and wordpress but found it difficult to install them onto your hosting.

As current customers will know, we don't like having problems and no solutions! Therefore, our server now has over 50 scripts that you can install onto your hosting package with 1 click. Not only that but it's all automated so as soon as you click install, the automatic installer starts and is usually done within a few minutes.

How does the one click installer work?

So, how does a one click installer work? From the user's perspective, it's actually quite simple. You click the script/app you want to install onto your hosting and within a few seconds, it's installed for you. All you have to do then is follow the app's setup via your website (usually where it will ask you to choose an admin username/password etc for your new website), simple!

Behind the scenes,it's far from simple, the 1 click installer takes care of all the complicated aspects for you such as setting up a database, uploading the script files, configuring the database logins, providing the database details to the script, configuring file permissions and much more.

Below are some of the 1 click installs that are the most popular. As we have over 70, we couldn't list them all here but if you don't see the one that you require, contact us and we will let you know if we have it.
