Information about 123-apps

What are 123-apps? 

With our free hosting apps you can install popular applications onto your hosting package such as WordPress or Joomla. Applications are programs that run within your hosting package. Just like a program running on your computer, each application will let you do different things.

We offer a range of Windows and Linux free hosting apps designed to help you do everything from creating websites and blogs to researching your family tree! You can install each application with a single click.

What applications do I get? 

We've included a whole range of free hosting apps to help you do different things with your Linux or Windows hosting.

If you buy one of our Linux hosting packages, you can install these Linux apps: WordPress, b2evolution, Drupal, Joomla, PHP-Nuke, PostNuke, SugarCRM, Mantis, Moodle, phpBB, SMF, Coopermine, Gallery, Tikiwiki, Mediawiki, Brim, eGroupWare, WebCalendar, PHProjekt, phpmyfamily, osTicket, and PHPList.

Can I get more applications? 

The number of free hosting apps you can install depends on which hosting package you purchase. If you decide you want to use more applications at the same time, you can always upgrade to the next package through your control panel.

Alternatively, it's easy to uninstall free hosting apps too - so you can swap them around whenever you like.

Can I remove an application if I change my mind?

Can I set up applications on subdomains? 

No problem at all. It's easy to create different subdomains and use them for different things. For instance, you could create a WordPress blog and make it available at Easy!
