Website applications like WordPress use a scripting language called PHP. The most widely used version is 5.x, but it will no longer be supported or updated after the end of 2018. That’s just around the corner.
What’s the concern?
Starting January 2019, your hosting company will no longer get security updates for PHP 5.x which puts your site at great risk for hacking.
What should you do?
Contact your hosting provider and find out what PHP version you’re using. PHP 7.2 is preferred.
How can you avoid future problems?
Staying up to date on plugins, themes and WordPress core is crucial for securing your website. Learn more about our WordPress support and maintenance plans to help you stay out of trouble.
