PHP is amongst the most widely used class-based programming languages. It is rather popular because it’s free software, which you can use to set up interactive websites such as community web portals, online shops or online learning portals as opposed to static HTML sites. A PHP module must be enabled on the server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its code can be ‘deciphered’. Because there aren’t any license fees for this kind of module and the language itself offers infinite options for the Internet applications that you create, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites. On top of that, there are an enormous number of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to have any coding capabilities. Given the fact that there are several PHP versions, you have to confirm if the very same version that you used while building your website is installed on the server as well.

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

With our Linux shared web hosting, you’ll be able to select which version of PHP will be active for your account, since we support several versions. With only one click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is published in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the previous ones. Thus, you will be able to host all the websites that you’ve developed over the years. Unlike many other web hosting companies, we won’t force you to update such websites, because a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t mean that it is vulnerable as you may have edited its code to prevent security loopholes. For the sake of your convenience, you’ll even be able to specify a different version of PHP for each site that you host in your account.

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

It’s our unswerving opinion that years spent setting up a website shouldn’t be in vain, so if you purchase a semi-dedicated server from our company, you’ll be able to use any script, regardless of whether it is new or old. Unlike lots of web hosts, we support a number of different PHP versions on our state-of-the-art cloud platform – 4, 5 and 7. Not only will you have the ability to activate the needed version via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you’ll also have the opportunity to select a different version for each website. The latter can be accomplished simply by placing an .htaccess file into the root folder of the given site. You can change the version both for a single site and for the entire account and the update will be applied in less than a few minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be certain that you won’t ever come across any website compatibility problems.
