Reminder: Native PHP to be Upgraded [Completed]

December 23, 2014

Our native installation of PHP is set to be upgraded from version 5.3 to 5.4 with staggered upgrades of our servers beginning January 3.

If you have an older application that is not compatible with PHP 5.4 we offer alternate versions of PHP from 5.2-5.6 that you can change to from your cPanel.

Please refer to our PHP upgrade announcement for more information.

UPDATE: Native PHP has now been upgraded to version 5.4 across all servers. If you encounter any issues please follow this guide to change your PHP version back to 5.3.

New VAT Tax for EU Customers

December 22, 2014

Effective January 1, 2015 changes to European Union tax laws require non-EU businesses providing electronic services to EU customers to charge VAT on sales at the rate determined by the country where the customer resides.

On this date Varial Hosting will begin charging VAT to customers residing in the EU.

If you are a EU business with a registered VAT number please provide this to before Jan 1 and we will not charge VAT on your purchases under the reverse-charge mechanism.
