Updating my website
Here’s a letter you can send to your hosting company: Dear host, I’m running a Woo Commerce webshop on one of your servers and Woo Commerce has recommended using at least PHP 5.6.

The upgrade process is an easy process and should be something your host can do for you without impacting your website or charging you a fee.
Not only is your website’s performance (a lot) lower than it should be, you may find that things do not work as you expect and be open to security vulnerabilities!
