Otherwise you will not be able to install and operate Dolphin properly.

HostForWeb is recommended hosting.

NB! This post on the Boonex blog implies that root access and a dedicated or virtual server is required for hosting.

If all the above requirements are met on your server then you are ready for installation.

If you want to add Dolphin to your cpanel automatic installation you should use these instructions. THese instructions are for Hosting providers and/or VPS/Dedicated server holders.
