Any developers can submit their app to our One-Click installation system by filling out the submission form. We encourage you to read the Web Application Submission Guidelines to familize yourself with what information will be needed. Once the app is reviewed it will be published to the One-Click Install Catalog

Existing customers can submit an app through the DreamHost Panel, under the One-Click Install tab.
