Dear Customer,

We are working towards making our Hosting Platform more stable and secure. One of the best ways we can do this is to stop supporting older versions of PHP that are no longer supported by the PHP community.

We have decided to: (i) deprecate the older versions of PHP (i.e. PHP v5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2) from our servers; and (ii) withdraw support for these deprecated PHP versions. These versions have shown the highest number of vulnerabilities over the last few years. Also, they stopped receiving support from the PHP community some time ago (PHP Unsupported Branches: https://www.php.net/eol.php).

- When can you expect these changes?

We request that you get your websites upgraded to PHP version 7.3 or 7.4. After 31st October 2020, older PHP versions (5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2) will not be supported on our servers.

- How to upgrade the PHP version?

You can manage the PHP version from the "MultiPHP Manager" option in your cPanel.


P.S. Please ignore this message if your websites are already running on PHP 7.3 or above.

For any queries, please feel free to contact our support team at https://hostcab.com/support

Dear Client,

As part of our efforts to upgrade the Shared Hosting platform, we are excited to announce the following improvements and changes which will come into effect from 01/03/2020:

Improvements:

- Upgrade to cPanel v86: You will soon be upgraded to the latest cPanel Long Term Support (LTS) version. This new version brings with it many exciting updates to make your server more stable and faster;

- Better stability: In an effort that has been going on for more than a year, we have been making many incremental changes to our hardware and software architecture to make your server more stable. This has resulted in a dramatic reduction in downtimes and instability issues, and we don’t plan on stopping here; and

- Faster websites: Just as with stability, we are working towards making your website faster with each passing day. You can definitely look forward to much better speeds in 2020.


Changes:

- Deprecation of PHP 5.2 and 5.3: The PHP community has stopped supporting 5.2 and 5.3 PHP versions a few years ago. However, given that some of our esteemed customers were still using these PHP versions, we continued to provide support. However going forward, to maintain better security standards on our server, we will not be offering our support to customers using 5.2 and 5.3 PHP versions on all our cPanel servers. In case you are still using 5.2 and 5.3 PHP versions, we request that you upgrade your website to run on at least PHP version 5.4 and above;

- Deprecation of SquirrelMail: As community support for this email plug-in has been rescinded, we too will stop offering/supporting SquirrelMail on our cPanel servers. Hence, going forward, You can continue accessing your email via Roundcube or Horde clients. Any contacts you might have saved in SquirrelMail will also be visible in both email clients. No data will be lost in this deprecation. Kindly note that there will NOT be any service downtime or migration of your emails;

- Change in Backup policy: We are updating our backup policy to now store restore points from the previous day, previous week, and previous month. These backups will be much more secure, as they would be stored in a different geography. As before, these backups are simply maintained for disaster recovery purposes, and cannot be guaranteed as a service to our customers.
