Very Simple Web Application Setup
In case you have installed an application for your web site by hand, then you already know that it ain’t an easy endeavor. You have to get the most up–to–date version of the app from the vendor, to upload it to your web server, to set up a database and then to choose a database username, to allocate permissions, to go through the whole configuration procedure, etc. This is absolutely needless with XL Web Hosting’s Applications Installer.
The Applications Installer makes things simple for you. Installing a software application is very easy as none of the actions discussed above are necessary. All you have to do is insert a user name and a pass and click on the Install button. That’s it.
We will set up the database on your behalf and will keep all our software applications updated to their most recent stable versions. Each single software application is being tested on our hosting platform and its installation is so quick that your new site will be published to the Internet in under 3 minutes.
