    PHP 7 availability

    It is June 2018 and Managed WordPress is still on PHP 5.x


    Is Godaddy discontinuing Managed WordPress?  Why haven't they still upgraded to PHP 7?

    This is really frustrating. Yesterday i contacted support for the same and they suggested me to migrate to cpanel hosting if i want to have php7. Now isn't this managed hosting meant to be better optimized for WordPress than the cpanel hosting. I don't know how php5 can give better optimization than php7. Even a beginner of WordPress knows that many modern plugins now a days require php7, but still so called optimized wordpress hosting of GoDaddy is running with years old php5. Instead  of changing hosting plan, time to change the host instead.

    Hello everyone. I just wanted to leave a quick note here to let folks know that PHP 7.x is now available on all Managed WordPress accounts. We know it was a long time coming and appreciate your patience.
