The PHP Community has discontinued support for PHP 5.6 and PHP 7.0.

If you are still using one of these versions for your website, you can upgrade to use a current PHP version at any time and free of charge. If you experience an issue after upgrading, you can switch back to the previous version within 7 days.

Our developers will provide security updates for PHP 5.6 and PHP 7.0 free of charge until 15 May 2019. After this date, we offer PHP Extended Support, which will be charged on your subsequent invoices.
