New Tool: Choose Your PHP Version

downloadBack in May we released a blog post about updates on the versions of PHP we have available on our servers with the introduction of PHP 5.3 to our server fleet. We are happy to announce a new tool in our cPanel which allows you to choose the PHP version of your account as well as the introduction of PHP version 5.4 on our systems.

How can I enable this feature?

Login to cPanel and under Software and Services, click on “Select PHP version”. You can then choose from either the native version of PHP of your server, or version 5.2, 5.3 and 5.4. PHP version 5.5 will be available when it comes out of alpha testing.

We are always looking to improve the technology available on our servers to our customers. If you have a feature that you would like to see on our servers, we would love to hear it in the comment section of this post. As always, if you have any questions about this new feature, our support team is here for you 24×7 to answer any questions you may have.

Let us Build a Website for you.

We’re always looking for ways to make our customers lives easier. We were one of the first hosting companies to offer free site migration for customers who transferred to us from other providers and it was received with much appreciation from our customers. It’s a no hands approach to getting set up with us. For our new customers, we’ve always offered easy to use free website builders to build great websites but is a more hands on approach. So we got to thinking how we could make it easy for our new customers to sign up and get something valuable up and running so they can go back to doing business…

Introducing the Starter Site feature.

Here’s what we’ll do for customers when they opt to use the Starter Site feature:

  • We’ll build a 1-page website that includes basic information such as their logo, hours of operation, contact information, map and description of their services.
  • We’ll manually create up to 5 e-mail addresses for them and provide assistance to setup their favorite e-mail clients.
  • We’ll register a free domain name for them
  • We’ll manually submit their website to Google, Yahoo and Bing.
