    The 1-click installer has really become popular over the last few month, as it is faster to install a simple script, such as MyBB, and it does not require any FTP access. I think this is a great opportunity for many to start their own website, without using the website builder.

    Actually this is an alternative to manual installation for other platform such as Wordpress, Joomla, Zen-Cart, etc.

    The best part is that this is no-brainer stuff for newbies and database installation it's being done by default with no user intervention.
    However you still need to have some skills to continue developing your site after installing.

    The one click installer just speeds things up for the real devs. It provides very little real benefit to newbies. Website builders are what a newbie needs, not an installation of a script that they have no idea how to work with.

    If a newbie is installing manually for example Joomla on a new host, he will have to create a database, create owner and take ownership to database and then to fill user and password in a step of Joomla installation.

    This is one example about benefits of One Click Installer. They don't need to deal with database.

    I love it, makes it really easy and saves a ton of time when setting up news wordpress sites, etc. I really enjoy having this feature with my hostgator account. :)

    I agree with Natcoweb. Softaculous 1-click installer provide more than 250 scripts and it is a real time saver.
