PHP is among the most widely used reflective programming languages. It’s quite popular since it is free software, which can be used to set up interactive sites such as community portals, web shops or e-teaching websites as opposed to static HTML websites. A PHP module must be available on the server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘decrypted’. As there are no license taxes for such a module and the language itself offers limitless options for the web applications that you develop, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites. In addition, there are a vast number of PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to possess any coding knowledge. Given the fact that there are a couple of PHP versions, you need to confirm if the exact same version that you used whilst developing your site is enabled on the web server too.

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

With our cloud hosting service, you will be able to pick which version of PHP will be enabled for your web hosting account, since multiple versions are supported on our servers. With just one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is introduced in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older versions. Thus, you will be able to host all the sites that you have developed throughout the years. In contrast with a lot of other web hosting companies, we will not force you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s insecure as you may have carried out modifications to its source code to patch safety loopholes. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each individual website that you host in your shared account.

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

If you’ve got a website created with a previous PHP version and you have contributed time and efforts towards setting it up, repairing security gaps and embedding web content, you will need to find a hosting service that can support it, since nearly all web hosting companies these days offer support only for the most recent PHP version and abandon the older versions. We, however, have decided to allow you to select the exact version that your sites require. Our semi-dedicated hosting service support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which means that you’ll be able to run both newer and older scripts without losing any custom settings or misspending time and effort trying to make your sites compatible with the web hosting platform. The current version can be changed from the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will apply to the whole semi-dedicated server account, but you will also have the ability to pick a different version of PHP for each single site hosted in your account using an .htaccess configuration file.
