PHP is amongst the most commonly used open-source web programming languages. It is exceptionally popular since it is free software, which you can use to create interactive sites such as community web portals, e-commerce portals or e-teaching sites rather than static HTML websites. A PHP module must be enabled on the web server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its source code can be interpreted. As there are no license charges for this kind of module and the language itself offers infinite possibilities for the web-based applications that you set up, there’re 100s of millions of PHP sites. Moreover, there are lots of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to have any coding know-how. As there are a few versions of PHP, you ought to confirm that the very same version that you used whilst building your website is installed on the web server as well.

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

With our web hosting, you’ll be able to choose the version of PHP that will be enabled for your shared hosting account, as we support multiple versions. With only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is released in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous versions. In this way, you will be able to host all the websites that you have set up through the years. In stark contrast to many other web hosts, we will not force you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have modified its source code to repair security breaches. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to specify a different PHP version for each individual website that you host in your hosting account.

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

If you have a website built with a previous PHP version and you’ve contributed time and effort toward developing it, plugging safety loopholes and publishing web page content, you’ll need to find a hosting service that can support it, since the great majority of hosting suppliers these days offer only the most recently launched PHP version and remove the previous ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to permit you to choose the exact version that your websites require. Our semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, so you’ll be able to use both newer and older scripts without losing any custom modifications or misspending time and effort trying to make your sites compatible with the web hosting environment. You can change the version via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will apply to the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you will also have the ability to specify a different version for each single website that you host in your account by means of an .htaccess configuration file.
