HostSellers is taking the following steps to update PHP to deliver improved performance and security across our systems:

·       On May 25, 2021 our web hosting platform will automatically upgrade our default PHP module to version 7.4.

·       Effective June 29, 2021 the platform will remove legacy PHP version 7.2 and older for any users that have selected these versions using the PHP Manager.


Upgrading PHP delivers improved performance and protects against security vulnerabilities in older, unsupported versions of PHP.  


PHP is a server-side scripting language used by some website CMS’s and in web development. There are two primary ways for adding support for PHP to a web server: as a native web server module (default) or as a CGI executable (managed through PHP Manager). 


Users who have websites coded using these deprecated functions of PHP or outdated CMS versions are recommended to upgrade to the newest version ahead of time for better performance, increased security, greater reliability and support for modern web standards.


If your website is built on a CMS or uses functionality from a legacy version of PHP that is not updated prior to May 25, 2021, there may be issues with your website. For detailed information on deprecated functionality, refer to Backward Incompatible Changes or Deprecated Features for the appropriate PHP version here:
