UltraSMSScript utilizes a very light framework (CakePHP), meaning it will run fine on a Linux shared hosting account. However, if you plan to use the script heavily and send hundreds of bulk SMS at a time then a VPS is recommended since you have more server power, more control over timeout properties and execution times without worrying about the restrictions placed on you with a shared hosting account. This is a serious piece of software and to utilize it to its fullest extent, a VPS should be considered.

UltraSMSScript is built on 3 of the very best SMS gateways. Twilio, Plivo, and Nexmo. You simply choose from the admin panel which SMS gateway you want to use! Depending on which SMS gateway you want to use, you will need to create an account with them and deposit some initial funds into your Twilio/Plivo/Nexmo account to get started. The platform gets linked up to your Twilio/Plivo/Nexmo account via 2 API security tokens that you will need to plug in to the admin panel. Any SMS or voice costs are then simply deducted from your Twilio/Plivo/Nexmo account balance.
