PHP is one of the most commonly used general-purpose server-side coding languages. It’s exceptionally popular as it’s free software, which you can use to set up interactive sites like community websites, e-shops or e-learning websites as opposed to static HTML-based sites. A PHP module must be enabled on the web server where a PHP website is hosted so that its code can be interpreted. Since there aren’t any license charges for this sort of module and the language offers endless options for the web-based apps that you set up, there’re 100s of millions of PHP websites. On top of that, there’re an immense number of PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without having to possess any programming experience. Given the fact that there’re a few versions of PHP, you need to verify that the same version that you used whilst setting up your site is present on the web server too.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Hosting

In case you purchase a cloud hosting package from us, you won’t ever have to ponder if your websites are compatible with the hosting environment, as we support several versions of PHP for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to select PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with only one single click and in case you wish to change the version, the update will take effect instantaneously. In this way, years of work on websites built with an older version will not go down the tube. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can use older and newer scripts at the same time. Most hosting companies on the marketplace support one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In stark contrast with them, we consider that you should be the one to pick the version that your own sites will be using.

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

Even in case your websites were created with an earlier PHP version, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support multiple versions running simultaneously on our servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with no more than a click of the mouse through our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. Apart from the newest PHP 7, we also offer 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been abandoned by the great majority of hosting companies, but we reckon that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a site that took years to build, as older scripting language syntax does not inevitably suggest safety holes. Just the opposite, a well-maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than a wrongly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we’ll also provide you with the opportunity to set a different PHP version for each single website within the account.
