One of our two Linux shared hosting platforms will be updated from supporting PHP version 7.0 to supporting PHP version 7.4.


One of our two Linux shared hosting platforms, the one currently running PHP version 7.0, will be updated to run PHP version 7.4. The other platform currently running PHP version 7.2 will remain unaffected.

This load balanced service will be updated 'node by node' and at all times at least three nodes will be available to service requests for your website, so your website should remain available but could at times switch between versions 7.0 and 7.4 during the maintenance.

After the maintenance completes, BIT is offering two platforms running PHP version 7.2 and PHP version 7.4. By doing a DNS change you can switch your site between these platforms. For more information on this, please contact our Customer Care department via or +31 318 648 688.
