Fluid Hosting announces end of support for PHP4

Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013

The following email was sent to all customers of our Shared Hosting platform.

Dear valued customer,

This email is to notify you that we shall be phasing out PHP version 4 on all our servers. PHP 4 will continue to be supported until the end of October 2013.

You have received this email because one of your sites might be affected by this. Please make sure that all of your websites support PHP version 5. All modern open source scripts like forums, shopping carts, Joomla, WordPress etc. already support PHP 5 and all you have to do is to keep them upgraded to the latest stable version.

If you have any questions, you may contact our support by creating a support ticket from within your control panel.

Sincerely,
System Administrators
Fluid Hosting, LLC

Following this announcement, Fluid Hosting officially releases PHP5 to all customers. http://blog.fluidhosting.com/2013/08/fluid-hosting-releases-php-5-4/

Dropping Bandcon

Monday, December 13th, 2010

On December 17, at 8:00PM ET we’ll be terminating our upstream connection with Bandcon. We are currently seeking out a replacement provider, however until that time comes, we’ll be relying on Internap for our connectivity. Our replacement for Bandcon should be installed within the next 30 to 60 days, at which time our network will be a blend of Internap and our new provider.
