How do I go about installing software (like a softaculous application) so that my cpanel users will see it under the "Software" section as soon as their cpanel is created?

Hello David,

Thank you for your question. You can purchase a Softaculous License from AMP (Account Management Panel).

Our system administration team will then order a license for your server and proceed to install Softaculous for you. Once this has completed you'll be notified by email again.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.

Thank you,
