Fantastico is the leading autoinstaller for cPanel servers. With more than 10.000 installations, it provides more than one million end users the ability to quickly install dozens of the leading open source content management systems into their web space.


Instant Updates

Fantastico F3 makes it possible to upgrade as soon as a script update is provided by the script developer. You no longer have to wait for updates from Netenberg.

Installation Flexibility

Install scripts in parked or add on domains or as deep inside your web root directory as you wish. Fantastico even supports split installs where certain data directories are stored in a different location than the main script (for example outside of the domain’s web root directory) if the script being installed also supports that.

Save Bandwidth

Big server farms will appreciate the fact that you can install Fantastico F3 and all associated files from an internal repository.


A totally open architecture enables every author to make their web applications Fantastico-ready. You as server owner will decide which of hundreds and possibly thousands of web applications will be available to your users. You can even make your own organization’s applications Fantastico-ready and put them to the servers of your organization – without intervention from Netenberg.


Fantastico F3 can now support other web hosting control panels besides cPanel, thanks to its highly portable and modular code base.


Over 500 scripts to choose from.

  • Cloning Tool.
  • Fantastico Core and Scripts belong in seperate cycles(Users do not need to wait for a new version of the Core to receive Script updates).
  • CLI installer(for both Fantastico Core and Scripts).
  • Multilingual version and full theming support. Web hosts can now completely retheme Fantastico F3 using Twig, no knowledge of PHP required.

A supported OS (for now any OS supported by cPanel 11.40 or later, though in the future this will be expanded)

A supported hosting control panel (for now, cPanel 11.40 or later – Fantastico F3 may work on earlier versions of cPanel, but we have not tested them)

Apache 1.x or later (Apache 2.2 or later strongly recommended)

512 MB of RAM (the same as cPanel, though 1 GB or higher is strongly recommend)

PHP 4 or higher (PHP 5.4 or higher strongly recommended for security)
