All shared, cloud web hosting, semi-dedicated, and reseller hosting plans offer the following PHP versions:
- PHP 4.4 (EOL)
- PHP 5.1 (EOL), PHP 5.2 (EOL), PHP 5.3 (EOL), PHP 5.4, PHP 5.5 (EOL), PHP 5.6 (EOL)
- PHP 7.0 (EOL), PHP 7.1 (EOL), PHP 7.2 (EOL), PHP 7.3 (EOL), PHP 7.4
- PHP 8.0, PHP 8.1
Any PHP version with (EOL) means it has reached its end of life and is no longer receiving feature updates. Custom security patches are still applied through CloudLinux however it is strongly recommended to not run any EOL version of PHP. We recommend running PHP 7.4 or newer.

- Login to cPanel for your account.
