FaucetCMS Faucet Script is definitely an option you need to consider if you want to start your own faucet.
Using this script, you will have everything you need in one place and every option is configurable through the admin panel; you won’t have to manually edit any code files.
It also comes with an installation script, making it even easier to install.
This script is relatively new – it hasn’t been installed by so many faucet owners so you shouldn’t have issues when registering on ad networks that require a faucet with an unique design in order to approve your account (unlike faucet-in-a-box for example which is overused).
However, this script will send a small amount of satoshis to its developer on every claim your visitors will make:
- For claims between 1 – 99 satoshi – a fee of 3 sat is paid to script’s developer
- For claims between 100 – 149 satoshi – a fee of 4 sat is paid to script’s developer
- For claims between 150 – 199 satoshi – a fee of 5 sat is paid to script’s developer
- For claims over 200satoshi – a fee of 6 sat is paid to script’s developer.
In my opinion, it’s a small price you pay for this great faucet script and it’s worth it.

How to Install FaucetCMS Faucet Script
Step 1: Get the script
Step 2: Get FaucetHub API Key / Get Captcha Keys / Upload files / Create database
Make sure you upload the files inside the archive from the ‘upload/’ folder to your web host webroot folder (probably named public_html/ ).
Step 3: Run the installation script
Yes, this faucet script comes with an automatic installation tool which is awesome.
After uploading the files, open a browser and navigate to http://yourdomain.com/install.php
Fill in the fields:
- You faucet address
Your faucet is now installed. Remember to delete the install.php and install_proceed.php from your web host after completing the installation.
Step 4: (Optional) Choosing a template
You might have noticed, there’s a templates/ folder inside the script’s zip file. Besides the default template, you can install one of these three templates:
To install any of these templates, overwrite this file from your web root:
With this file inside the downloaded zip file:
Step 5: Configure FaucetCMS Faucet Script
As mentioned before, everything is customizable from inside the admin panel.
Open a browser and point it to http://yourdomain.com/admin
Your default credentials are
The first thing you need to do is change the admin username and password from Service tab.
Next, go to Settings tab and configure the basic settings:
Claim time: Time between claims (Recommended: 30)
Instant payment: Enter 1 for instant payment or 0 for withdraw limit. The second options means that a user has to reach a certain amount of satoshi before he’ll be able to withdraw them. (Up to you but keep in mind that instant payment faucets are more appreciated by faucet users)
Withdraw limit: Minimum amount of satoshi required to enable withdraw (Only needed when previous setting is 0)
Min and Max rewards: Visitors are rewarded a random amount of satoshis inside these values (Recommended: 50 – 100)
Referral bonus: Referral program award (Recommended: Keep this under 25%)
Shorten links enabled: Set 1 for enabled or 0 for disabled.
Shorten links bounce: Amount of satoshi a user is rewarded for visiting one of the shorten links (Recommended: 50)
SIDE NOTE: There are three available shorten services, each will reward a specific amount of satoshi, besides what the faucet is already giving away. For example, if a user has visited all three shorten links, he will be awarded 150 sat + whatever the faucet is already giving, let’s say 75 sat, so a total payout of 225 sat.
However, you should only use the BTCMS service as the other two (mellow and shorte.st) are only counting unique visitors per day. So, if a user has claimed your faucet and visited the shorten links 10 times in 24 hours – you will get paid from mellow and shorte.st only once.
To get a BTCMS API Key, click here and create an account. Then go to My Account / Tools / Developers API.
If you still want to use the other two, you need to get the API Keys from them also:
Captcha settings: You can either use reCaptcha or SolveMedia or both. Follow the guide at Step 2 for API Keys.
Payment gateways: Get the FaucetHub API Key by following the guide at Step 2.
The rest of the configuration is up to you (Pages, menus etc).
Once you registered to a few advertising networks (CoinAdia Step 3), you will be able to insert the ad blocks code from Homepage Layout tab.
