PHP & MySQL Upgrade

PHP 5.2 and Frontpage have been obsolete for many years. As a result, we're beginning the process to remove PHP 5.2.17 and Frontpage from our shared hosting servers and encourage customers to switch to PHP 5.3.x.

  • " In my (soon to be 2 years) hosting/domain renewal with Exabyte (Malaysia), I have not ceased to be amazed by the efficiency of the ticketing system. Tickets are replied the moment they receive your queries irrespective of which department handles your tickets. Another amazing achievement is how well the various departments cooperate to solve a client's problem. I would recommend Exabyte to all Malaysians intending to have their own hosted website as long as they can maintain this tradition of excellence. Special thanks to SH Neoh also for his/her rapidquick reply in solving my queries. "Jo @ BerryBerryEasy.com
