Change PHP Version

With all shared and reseller hosting you can change your PHP version on the fly, for either the whole account or individual domains/subdomains. We offer all major versions of PHP from 5.2 through to the very latest (currently 7.2). To change the PHP version in use for your domain(s) you first need to login to the cPanel, see the below guide on doing this:
