PHP is among the most commonly used general-purpose programming languages. It’s quite popular since it is free software, which can be used to create interactive sites such as community web portals, e-stores or online teaching portals as opposed to static HTML websites. A PHP module should be activated on the web server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its code can be ‘decoded’. As there are no license charges for such a module and the language provides innumerable options for the web apps that you set up, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites. Also, there are an enormous number of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to possess any programming skills. As there’re several PHP versions, you should confirm whether the same version that you used while creating your website is present on the web server too.

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

With our web hosting, you will be able to select which PHP version will be enabled for your shared account, since different versions are available on our servers. With as little as one click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is launched in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you have set up through the years. In stark contrast with a lot of other hosting vendors, we will not compel you to update such websites, as a script may be out of date, but this does not necessarily mean that it’s vulnerable since you may have edited its source code to patch safety holes. For the sake of your convenience, you’ll even be able to choose a different PHP version for each single site that you host in your shared hosting account.

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

We’re strong in our conviction that several years spent setting up a website should not go down the drain, which suggests that in case you get a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to run any script, new or old. In contrast with many hosting vendors, we support a number of different versions of PHP on our innovative cloud web hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only be able to activate the needed version through your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the possibility to specify a different version for each website. This can be done merely by placing an .htaccess file into the given site’s root folder. You can change the current version both for a single website and for the whole account and the update will take effect in no more than a couple of minutes. With our hosting services, you can rest assured that you will never have any website incompatibility predicaments.
