Web & Classic Hosting users - What to do to force Godaddy update PHP version?

Hi there Web & Classic Hosting users:
I am a very old user here at Godaddy, and I am not planning to switch to Cpanel hosting, I am happy with my Web & Classic Hosting but the PHP version.

How many of you are still Web & Classic Hosting users?

Let's be organized to encourage Godaddy to update PHP version.

Super User IV



I am an end user like you. I can tell you that GoDaddy has announced they are discontinuing what you call the "Classic Hosting" which is why they have been migrating the accounts over to cPanel.


The best parallel I can give you is to think of the classic hosting as an early iPad or Andriod tablet - does it still run today - yes, can you run some apps (even current versions) yes 


Can you get all apps / latest version / latest OS  - no you cannot - The server is the same way. 


This is an over simplification of the issue but I hope it gets the point across - as to why this just isn't possible. You server will at some point be updated / migrated to cPanel.
