PHP is amongst the most widely used multi-paradigm programming languages. It’s rather popular as it is free software, which you can use to build responsive websites such as community sites, e-stores or online learning portals rather than static HTML sites. A PHP module must be available on the web server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘decoded’. Since there are no license fees for such a module and the language offers endless options for the web applications that you develop, there are 100s of millions of PHP websites. Furthermore, there’re a vast number of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to possess any coding skills. Considering the fact that there’re different versions of PHP, you must check whether the same version that you used while creating your website is activated on the server as well.

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

We’ve made a decision not to restrict our present and prospective clients from choosing the PHP version that their websites will use, which suggests that if you order a cloud hosting plan from us, you will be able to pick between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the account as a whole, but also for each single domain name that you host. This can be done with just one single click from our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all shared hosting accounts are managed, which is the reason why you won’t have to possess any coding or technical knowledge. You will be able to run sites based on both old and new PHP-based scripts without a problem, so if you decide to swap your current hosting supplier and migrate over to us, you can rest assured that all the sites that you have created throughout the years will continue to run faultlessly.

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

Even in case your websites were built with an earlier version of PHP, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support multiple versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with just one click through our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Aside from the newest PHP 8, we also offer support for 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4 and the older PHP 4, which has already been abandoned by most web hosting suppliers, but we strongly think that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a website that took years to build, as older scripting language syntax doesn’t always suggest security weaknesses. On the contrary, a rightly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a negligently maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also provide you with the possibility to pick a different version of PHP for each single website within your account.
