PHP is among the most commonly used scripting languages. It is quite popular as it’s free software, which you can use to develop responsive websites such as social networking sites, e-shops or school websites rather than static HTML sites. A PHP module should be activated on the server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘translated’. Because there are no license taxes for this type of module and the language offers unlimited options for the web applications that you create, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites. Moreover, there are many open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to possess any coding capabilities. Given the fact that there’re different PHP versions, you have to confirm if the same exact version that you used whilst building your site is enabled on the server as well.

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

If you buy a cloud website hosting package from our company, you will never need to speculate on whether your websites are compatible with the web hosting platform, since several versions of PHP are activated on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with only one click and in case you would like to change the version, the update will take effect instantly. Thus, years of work on websites created with an older version of PHP will not be wasted. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which suggests that you can use newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most hosting companies on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two PHP versions. In contrast with them, we consider that you should be the one to choose the version that will be used by your very own websites.

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

Even in case your websites were created with an earlier PHP version, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support different versions running at the same time on our semi-dedicated servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with no more than one click through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. Besides the newest PHP 7, we also support 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been dropped by most hosting suppliers, but we deem that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a site that took years to build, since older script language syntax doesn’t invariably equal security vulnerabilities. Quite the opposite, a well-maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an incompetently maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we’ll also offer you the opportunity to choose a different version for each individual website within your account.
