Outdated versions of PHP

For security reasons, we will stop supporting outdated versions of PHP software (older than PHP 7.2) on our servers.

This change may affect your site on our server. If you currently have PHP version up to 7.2, upgrading your PHP version may result in your website not working.
As of this year, three PHP versions have been supported by developers for security updates:
•    7.1 (until 1.12.2019)
•    7.2 (until 30.11.2020)
•    7.3 (until 6.12.2021)

Our recommendation:
1.    If you have a website developer, we recommend that you investigate as soon as possible whether your website code needs updating or that the developer can immediately configure the newer version of PHP for the domain.
2.    You can also try to safely test whether the migration to PHP 7.2 or 7.3 is causing a malfunction in the website. To do this, you need to change the PHP version from the server panel and then check your site. If there are errors on the page, you can change the version back and then contact the web developer for assistance.

You can change the PHP version in the server panel yourself by following the instructions below:
1.    PHP -> select the required version -> Activate
2.    WWW Domains -> open WWW domain -> PHP Mode -> CGI

You can find a guide with the pictures here:

We will end support for expired PHP versions 5.2, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0 and 7.1 from 01.01.2020. On all websites that are not set to work at least on PHP 7.2 on that date, we will automatically change the version of the latest version of PHP on our servers after the deadline. This may result in your website not functioning.

Shared Hosting vs VPS Hosting – The Difference

Many of us have wondered and been at sea when it comes to opting for the most suitable type of hosting for a given project. Whether you are a professional blogger or a business owner, you might want to know about the difference – Shared hosting vs VPS or VDS hosting.
Let us walk you through the several advantages each offers and why it may fit your requirements!

Basic Understanding – Shared Hosting

Shared Hosting, in a simple example, is like living a villa with a garden or pool that is also used by your neighbors. This hosting lets you share your resources on a server space with other users and businesses. Since you share the same resources, you use the same storage, bandwidth, and database as the others. It proves to be popular as it is basic, affordable and easy to maintain.

Advantages of Shared Hosting

If you are looking for a hosting that is economical and easy to maintain, Shared hosting is the perfect solution. This hosting is fairly known for the fact that it suits all the newbies who intend to be on the web since it is the cheapest form of hosting. You do not require much technical knowledge to operate this hosting. It is easy and hassle-free when it comes to upgrades, as most of it is taken care by your web host. Not much technical assistance is required and all your installations can be done smoothly.

Basic Understanding – VPS

Virtual Private Server also is known as VPS hosting boasts a pool of features, which are significantly different from Shared hosting. It is like living in a single apartment that requires you to maintain that space by yourself. You are responsible for the entire space while having the advantage to customize by choice and need. If your customer’s website is loaded with high-security data and heavy applications, VPS hosting is the ideal pick.

Advantages of VPS

There are no second thoughts when it comes to VPS. It has many benefits just like shared hosting. The main benefit, however, is full root access to your server to configure it as per your needs. One can enjoy full resource allowance like bandwidth and storage, which is dedicated to your server. You now have the power to expand your website over time helping it operate at a high level. No worries for your website when it comes to security. VPS hosting makes an asset for companies where security is a top priority.

Let us understand the Shared hosting vs VPS hosting debate with this simple checklist:

Shared hosting is best for you if you are:

  • Experimenting web hosting and not looking to invest much;
  • Launching a startup;
  • Running a small-medium sized business;
  • Less frequented visitors on website;
  • Not requiring a lot of space and bandwidth.

VPS hosting is best for you if your

  • Budget is big enough to justify opting for a VPS hosting;
  • Running a well-established business;
  • Business is large in scale;
  • Customers’ site frequents large amounts of traffic which call for more space and bandwidth;
  • Customers are looking for comprehensive security beyond what a regular shared hosting can offer;
  • Clients want to configure detailed aspects of the server.

What is best for you

Shared hosting vs VPS or VDS hosting comparison is not as comprehensive. Both fit a different type of websites. It all boils down to what your needs are and how much is one willing to pay. In many instances, shared hosting is a right fit for a lot of individuals or small sized businesses. It is less comprehensive from a technical standpoint with a convenient user interface. On the other side, most established businesses will look for benefits of VPS hosting. This serves all their immediate preferences and provides scalability. They call for enough bandwidth to live up to customer demand and maintain consistent growth, which VPS hosting takes care of.

At this moment, the key differences between Shared and VPS/VDS hosting are clearly before us. We offer both, regardless of what size, kind, and type of business. This decision purely depends on you and your need, and we have got you covered.

We hope scanning through benefits of each of the product helps you make the right choice for your website.
