<ac:macro ac:name="note"><ac:parameter ac:name="title">Please note</ac:parameter><ac:rich-text-body><p>This page is about installing Zend Framework on a hosting account&mdash;not which hosting providers do/don't/might support the latest required version of PHP. Please use <ac:link><ri:page ri:content-title="Zend Framework Web Hosts" ri:space-key="ZFUSER" /></ac:link> for that instead.</p></ac:rich-text-body></ac:macro>

<p>It's important to be aware that most web hosts run old versions of PHP. If you are in a situation where this is the case and you cannot compile your own version of PHP, trying sending the <a href="http://www.php.net/ChangeLog-5.php">PHP changelog</a> to your web host and encourage them to upgrade to the current stable version of PHP. For more information, see <ac:link><ri:page ri:content-title="Zend Framework Web Hosts" ri:space-key="ZFUSER" /></ac:link>.</p>

<p>If you are looking for a new host and want one that will run Zend Framework, see <ac:link><ri:page ri:content-title="Zend Framework Web Hosts" ri:space-key="ZFUSER" /></ac:link>.</p>

<p>For reference purposes, Zend also has a <a href="http://www.zend.com/hosting_sites/phphosting.php">list of providers hosting PHP services</a>, although some might not support the requirements of the ZF.</p>

<h2>Popular Web Hosting Control Panels</h2>
