PHP is amongst the most widely used curly-bracket programming languages. It’s rather popular since it’s free software, which can be used to build responsive sites such as community web portals, web stores or online learning websites rather than static HTML-based sites. A PHP module should be present on the server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its code can be ‘deciphered’. Because there are no license taxes for this type of module and the language offers infinite options for the web-based applications that you build, there are 100s of millions of PHP websites. Moreover, there are a huge number of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to have any coding expertise. Considering the fact that there’re a number of versions of PHP, you should check if the exact same version that you used while creating your site is available on the web server as well.

PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Web Hosting

With our Linux web hosting, you’ll be able to choose the version of PHP that will be enabled for your shared web hosting account, as we support several versions. With only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is launched in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous ones. Thus, you will be able to host all the sites that you have set up over the years. In contrast to a lot of other hosting vendors, we will not force you to update such websites, because a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t mean that it is insecure since you may have done modifications to its code to fix safety gaps. For your convenience, you will even be able to choose a different PHP version for each individual website that you host in your account.

PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

It is our staunch opinion that years spent developing a website shouldn’t be in vain, which suggests that if you order a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to run any script, regardless of whether it is new or old. In stark contrast with lots of hosting suppliers, we support several different PHP versions on our revolutionary cloud platform – 4, 5 and 7. Not only will you have the ability to activate the needed version through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you’ll also have the opportunity to pick a different PHP version for each single website. The latter can be done merely by inserting an .htaccess file in the root folder of the given site. You can change the current version not only for a single site, but also for the entire account and the new settings will take effect in less than a couple of minutes. With our hosting services, you can be sure that you will never stumble upon any site incompatibility issues.
