Default PHP version is now PHP 7.4

Simba Hosting is committed to using up-to-date technologies, and not just letting things slide. Letting things slide is common in the web hosting industry; at the time of writing in December 2019, over 3 in 5 WordPress sites (the most popular website building tool) run on versions of PHP that have been end-of-lifed by the PHP group.

Accordingly, we have updated the default version of PHP used for new web hosting accounts from PHP 7.3 to 7.4. All customers can continue to request a different PHP version (from 5.4 up to the latest available, 7.4) to suit their requirements.
