PukkaHost now with option of PHP 5.3.5

March 10th, 2011

Many of our customers have been enquiring about when we will have PHP 5.3.5 available and we can now announce that we have added this version on our Shared Linux Hosting packages.

We have managed to add this whilst still being able to support PHP 4.4 and PHP 5.2 .

It has always been easy to change between PHP versions from within the Pukka Panel. To switch to PHP 5.3.5 just use the PHP Switcher in the Extend Pukka Control Panel as in illustration below.

Alternatively you can just add the following line to your .htaccess file


And for setting up Cron Jobs you would just use this path for the PHP 5.3.5 interpreter.


And just like with our other PHP versions you can add your own directives to your custom php.ini files and can be added at any level to the path of your scripts and will be included just the same as in PHP 4.4 and 5.2.

Ecommerce made Easy with Pukka Host

July 5th, 2009

It’s never been so easy to start your own online store and start making money.

With over £150million a day now spent online, there’s never been a better reason to start your very own online store.  We at Pukka Host are aware that not everyone has the skills to design and develop their own e-shop and put it online. If you’re looking to hire a development company to create the store for you, you could easily be looking at paying thousands of pounds for their service.

Every Pukka Host customer can easily install their very own e-commerce shop at no extra cost! Installation is simple and is controlled via your hosting control panel where you have a variety of different stores to choose from. These include: ZenCart, osCommerce, Cubecart and AgoraCart. Once installed you can configure the store to your requirements and start adding products straight away. If our users ever need assistance then we always have our friendly support staff to help.

To give your customers added piece of mind when they order from your store, we give every hosting customer shared secure server access. With shared secure server access you can be sure that any sensitive data being sent with a transaction is encrypted and secure. For example, you would see a https:// (“s” meaning secure) instead of the usual http:// and the Browser will show the padlock symbol.

Windows Hosting

May 5th, 2009

Although the majority of websites hosted today use Linux based webservers, we at Pukka Host acknowlege that there is still quite a few web developers and businesses that use software and scripts that will need a Windows Server environment with .ASP.

So as from today we are now offering a Windows web Hosting solution at the same great price as our very popular Linux Package.

Obviously the Windows Package will have some different features and it will not be able to utilize some of the linux script packages.

The Windows Hosting Package will come with 2 MySQL Databases and we will be offering 200Mb MS SQL Databases as extra Addons.

We think this is one of the best value Windows Hosting Packages Available and with our support and reliability you can’t go wrong.

100 New Templates Added

February 11th, 2009

Great News, we have just added another 100 website templates to the web packages. This now brings the total free website templates to well over 500.

These templates can be accessed and downloaded from within your Pukka Hosting Control Panel, they are easily edited which means you can have any website up and running in next to no time.
