PHP is amongst the most widely used general-purpose programming languages. It is rather popular as it’s free software, which can be used to develop responsive websites like community sites, e-commerce portals or online teaching websites rather than static HTML-based websites. A PHP module should be installed on the server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its code can be ‘translated’. Since there are no license fees for such a module and the language provides innumerable possibilities for the applications that you create, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites. Plus, there are plenty of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to have any coding expertise. Given the fact that there are different versions of PHP, you need to verify that the same version that you used while building your site is activated on the server as well.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Website Hosting

With our shared website hosting plans, you’ll be able to choose the version of PHP that will be active for your account, since we offer support for different versions. With just one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is released in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the older versions. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you’ve developed through the years. In contrast with lots of other web hosting suppliers, we won’t compel you to update such websites, because a script may be out of date, but this does not mean that it is vulnerable as you may have modified its source code to fill safety loopholes. For your convenience’s sake, you will even be able to choose a different PHP version for each individual website that you host in your shared web hosting account.

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

Our Linux semi-dedicated servers support multiple versions of PHP, which goes to say that you will be able to run all the Internet applications that you’ve built through the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with every single account, will permit you to enable the version that you need with one single mouse click. You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. In case you’d like to host multiple websites in one and the very same account and they have special requirements for the hosting environment, you will be able to set a different PHP version for each one of them irrespective of which version is selected for the account as a whole. This is possible thanks to our custom-developed cloud hosting platform, which permits us to run different PHP versions at once. By comparison, the vast majority of web hosting providers normally offer one, in extremely rare cases – two versions.
