Pre-installed software makes it easier for you

All our hosting comes with pre-installed software you'll want to use

All UKCZ hosting comes with over 30 ready to install software applications, any of which can be installed at the click of a button via your cPanel control panel.

With the aptly named Fantastico script library, it's no longer necessary to understand how to install a myriad of popular applications, because the software you need is now able to be added into your hosting space (and the appropriate MySQL databases created and loaded) at the click of a button. There is no extra cost to you for this service. It's not dependent on which hosting package you choose. It's free and easy, just as it should be.

Other hosting companies may charge you extra, provide scripts you have to download and install by hand, or even provide inferior software, but UKCZ provides software you've heard about and want to use.

wordpressBlogging is easy
Perhaps you want to create a blog using your own domain name and hosting. That couldn't be easier with the increasingly popular Wordpress software loaded and ready to go in just a few minutes. It's a particularly popular choice because it's supported by thousands of free templates (or themes as they are called) as well as plugins to add professional functionality.

We also offer two other blog software packages, if you decide that Wordpress isn't for you. The b2evolution software has particularly good multilingual support, whilst Nucleus is great for maintaining more than one blog at a time.


Drupal CMSTake complete control of your site with one of 12 Content Management Systems available
If you have limited design skills, but still want a professional looking site with full functionality, you should look at using a Content Management System (CMS). We have 12 different CMS's ready to load including the ones you've probably already heard about: Drupal; Joomla; Mambo; Typo3; PHP-Nuke; phpWCMS; and, Xoops.

All these CMS's allow you to easily create new pages, add content and then edit that content using a back end control panel. Many offer the ability to add free templates and plugins too.


osCommerceOpen a shop with free e-commerce shopping carts
If you want to sell products online, the chances are that you're going to want to use a shopping cart system. We offer three popular open source shopping cart programs to allow you to do just that. The increasingly popular OS Commerce is easy to install on your hosting, as is Zen Cart and CubeCart.

But there's more to running a shop online than simply providing a method to buy your products. It's also important to provide your customers with support. Fortunately UKCZ hosting also has seven programs available to help you do this, including Crafty Syntax live support (as used on this site), support ticket and support forum software.

Other popular software also makes it easy to add polls and surveys to your site. Creating a Wiki is also made possible with two different applications available. The most popular advertising control program - OpenX, or phpAdsNew as it used to be called - is also easily installed at the click of a button. In fact, UKCZ offers you the ability to load and start using over 30 software applications for no extra cost and irrespective of which package you choose.
