Is 12/31/24 the End of Life for Your Website? The Critical Importance of Upgrading to PHP 8

Share this:

Does Haley Marketing host your website?

If the answer is yes – and your website is more than 12 months old – then I have another very important question for you:

Have you upgraded to PHP 8.2 yet?

If not (or if you don’t know what PHP 8 or otherwise means), pull up a chair. You only have until the end of the year to upgrade or your website will stop working. Why? It is the “end of life” for the current version of your website’s programming language.

To remain secure, your website needs an upgrade!

Haley Marketing has been building websites on PHP 8.2 for a year, so if your site is newer than 12 months, you’re all set and good to go.

Your monthly website hosting fee covers a lot of great services, including:

  •  Secure hosting at WP Engine
  • Daily backups
  • Site monitoring
  • WordPress core system updates
  • Plug-in updates
  • Access to our help center and Success Team

However, upgrading PHP requires more extensive testing and often coding changes to keep your website compatible with the new versions of the software. This level of testing and code updates is not included with our basic hosting.

We’re offering several options to upgrade eligible websites:

  • An upgrade package with a fee.
  • A complimentary upgrade package with the purchase of a Website Success Package.
  • A significant discount on a new website.

Don’t wait until the deadline to make the necessary changes!

Contact our Success Team to secure your site today with one of our packages and enjoy the upgrade benefits for the rest of the year:

  • Upgrading a website from PHP 5.6 to 7.2 resulted in speed improvements of up to 40%.
  • From 7.2 to 7.3, we saw as much as 15% faster page transaction times.
  • With 7.4, we saw around 10% performance improvement after upgrading.
