What are Preinstall apps? How do they work?

Preinstall is our name for a selection of apps, scripts and tools that you can preinstall on a virtual server without configuring them yourself. These apps include CMS packages like Joomla and Drupal, blogging software like WordPress, and development environments such as LAMP, MEAN, Node and Django. You can install these when you first set up your server—instead of selecting an operating system, choose Preinstall and select an app from the menu. No need to download files, create databases, or battle file permissions. We'll take care of installing the app on your server, so all you need to do is configure it and get going.

We don't provide support for the apps in our Preinstall selection, but if you're having problems installing them then please let us know and we'll do all we can to help.
