Discontinued of PHP 5.2 and Microsoft FrontPage Extension from cPanel

Dear valued customer,

This is an early announcement that we will stop supporting PHP 5.2 and Microsoft® mod_frontpage by end of 2013 considering the fact that cPanel has stopped supporting them.

What Will Change?
We no longer offer new server with PHP 5.2 and Microsoft Frontpage 

Why is support for PHP 5.2 & FrontPage Extension discontinued?
PHP had announced its End Of Life in 2011 and cPanel had decided to stop it by end of 2013. In fact, Microsoft has stopped selling FrontPage Software since 2006.

What should I do if I am using PHP 5.2 or/and FrontPage Extension?
You should upgrade your web application to the latest version so that it can support PHP 5.3 and above. In case you/your developer is not aware of it, feel free to refer to the PHP.net manual as below,
http://php.net/manual/en/migration53.php

If you are still using FrontPage Extension, it’s highly recommended to replace it with WebDisk (WebDAV) or FTP.
For more information about WebDAV, please visit http://go.cpanel.net/webdiskmobile.
For more information about FTP, please visit http://go.cpanel.net/cpanelftp.  

Thank you very much for your attention! 

Best Regards,
