If you have a website, and actively participated in its development and hosting, then there are high chances that you came across the magic software application called cPanel. cPanel is the control panel of your web hosting space, and it generally covers every customization option that you can probably think of with your site! There are certain basic features of cPanel such as the web based and FTP servers that help in uploading, and other manipulation operations associated with web based files. One can also change the setting of the applications used to develop the site.
However, in order to have the applications installed in the system without any fuss, cPanel has a magic solution: Fantastico. Like the name suggests, it is a fantastic script library containing nearly most of the scripts required to install applications in the website. So, if you are looking forward to install a blog application or a picture gallery to your website, look no further! CPanel along with Fantastico can do it in minutes. So, what are the benefits that one can get while using cPanel with Fantastico? Well, it is a win-win situation for both the viewers and the site developer, as it helps in making the website more efficient and interactive, and without stressing the developer!
cPanel and Fantastico Scripts
A few applications that make it worth to have a Fantastico enabled cPanel are:
a. Blogs – This is the latest mouthpiece of the netizens. Be it views or information sharing or just a glimpse of a new idea, all people do is blog about it. So, for website owners, its great to have a blogging application in their site! Though most blogging applications come embedded in Content Management Systems (CMS), we can also add standalone blogging applications through Fantastico scripts.
b. Content Management System (CMS) – This magic application can help you create a site in hours! Moreover, there are several options like changing, deleting, uploading etc that makes it more convenient. Therefore, most cPanels have options for installing a CMS to work upon. However, installing a CMS on a server is generally a highly complex process. With Fantastico, it is just a matter of couple of minutes!
c. Image gallery – Websites without images are unthinkable today, unless the website is highly content specific, and is required to be like that. Therefore, in most cases, we either need to provide a image tour or a tutorial to enhance the viewer experience. Coding and designing an image gallery on our own would be much more difficult than installing a third-party software application. If you choose to go by the easy path, then there’s Fantastico with its fantastic scripts.
d. Email lists – Websites need to be interactive. While forms can help, there are times when one needs to mail. It could be newsletters, confidential information or even user-generated messages. In case of mailing lists, if you are a member, then you can send and receive mails to other subscribed members in the last month. Fantastico has a few scripts that look after email lists and other mailing applications.
While cPanel provides all the functions that is necessary to build a website, the whole installation process is made easy by Fantastico scripts!
