Use a Content Management System Installation
Another popular method of building a website is by using a CMS or Content Management System. This lets users create websites by means of installing a program onto the root document of a domain, allowing the editing to be done by an admin user.
HostGator is compatible with a variety of Content Management Systems and blogging software, most of which can be installed using our one-click installer, Softaculous, or QuickInstall (Note: QuickInstall will be going away). Softaculous and QuickInstall are available in the Software section of cPanel.
