WildFire DSI Released Today

I rarely make product announcements, but am taking the liberty of doing so today. We’ve been working on a nifty little script for about 9 months now, and it is finally ready for prime time.

WildFire DSI is an auto-installer for Open Source or Custom website Scripts. DSI stands for “dynamic script installer”.

It works with our hosting billing manager (WHMCS), and on Cpanel/WHM reseller accounts, VPS, or dedicated servers. It has a lot of features which make it really cool, if you don’t mind my tooting my own horn for a bit.

The neatest thing is, that it can install just about anything. We have templated install files for Joomla, Joomla with VirtueMart, WordPress, and CRE Loaded/OSC. If it will install those, it will install practically anything. And it can install as many different ones as the web service provider wants to install.

In plain English, this means a client can go to the ordering system, choose from a list of website packages, for example:

  • Joomla with no frills
  • Joomla with a directory
  • Joomla with Virtuemart
  • CRE Loaded
  • WordPress
  • Joomla AND WordPress together
  • Magento
  • Or just about anything you want to offer them.

When the client purchases the site structure, the system identifies the one that was chosen, and automatically installs it. Instant website.

Our coder was truly brilliant about how he created the functionality. It is so flexible you can even make it personalize an install for the client.

We love this, we’ve been using it in our own business, in one form or another, for about 6 months. It allows us to pre-configure the install packages, which saves us so much time on the installations we do most often. It has also allowed us to tap into some fairly lucrative vertical markets (targeting a website service for a specific industry).

It went live today, at http://www.dynamicsiteinstaller.com, complete with affiliate program.

I really didn’t even want to sell this. It is such an advantage for our business, and such a powerful tool, I wasn’t sure I wanted to let to go to empower my competition. I sort of wanted to keep it just for our students and our own business. People keep asking for it though. And I guess I want to share my knowledge and tools more than I want to hoard them.
