You can run different versions of PHP in our new servers. Third-party applications may require stable version of PHP. If you are a shared hosting user, you can change your PHP version in your cPanel account. If you are a VPS or Dedicated customer, to take advantage of running PHP 5.4 you must be currently using PHP 5.3 and MySQL 5.1 – if you are not using these minimum requirements you must upgrade first. Please contact our support department if you are a VPS or dedicated hosting customer and wish to use PHP 5.4.
