PHP 5.6 End of life. What should I do?

Written by Daniel Partadzhiev
From 31 December 2018 PHP 5.6 is no longer being maintained with security support by the PHP.net community, and PHP 7.1 will be no longer actively supported as well. For more detailed information about the supported PHP versions, please click here.

- Will my website be no longer secure?
- Am I exposed to hackers?

Take a deep breath if you're on Kualo's shared hosting, because the answer is almost certainly no!

Written by Jo Stonehouse
When you shop online you, you're giving the store an enormous amount of personal information - your name, address, email and even payment data.
