Fantastico is a dead project. Last updated in 2012.

If you're using it, probably best to replace it with Softaculous and enjoy the savings .

I think Softaculous wins here hands down. It's also my preference.

I think Installatron is more of a competitor to Softaculous (Albeit, more expensive).

Out of the 2, I prefer the UI of Installatron but Softaculous for everything else.

Use Softaculous. It is more useful than Fantastico, which is out-of-date. Softaculous is user-friendly, has a lot of features, has many apps and demos.

I've found Fantastico easier to use for CMS installations. : )

+1 for Softaculous... constant updates without any hassle... not a fan of Fantastico at all!

I use Softaculous software for the clients to use because it is implement with more and even new scripts. It automatically updates software up to date.

EDITED: No self-promoting

Not every software gets automatically updated. WHMCS for example, in most cases it provides the update but you will need to finish it by visiting the upgrade wizard.

It is easy, I was just pointing it out. Different software will have different methods of telling you that you're out of date. Softaculous can send notifications for example or you might find a little note in the admin area of the software and so on.

Bottom line for the best one is Softaculous, because it has more scripts and definitely more user friendly. But Fantastico has most of the same scripts, but its Softaculous lil sister.

If anyone has asked me in the past I would tell them sofaculous due to it uses more updated scripts and it also has a good UI and they are adding scripts all the time to the software

+1 for Softaclous, we have used both Installatron and Softaclous for years, and come to the decision to use Softaclous with all our new deployed servers.
