PHP is among the most widely used interpreted programming languages. It’s pretty popular as it’s free software, which you can use to develop responsive sites like community websites, e-commerce portals or e-teaching websites instead of static HTML websites. A PHP module must be available on the server where a PHP site is hosted so that its code can be ‘translated’. Because there are no license taxes for this sort of module and the language provides unlimited possibilities for the web applications that you set up, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP sites. What is more, there’re a myriad of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to possess any coding expertise. Considering the fact that there’re several PHP versions, you have to make certain that the same exact version that you used while creating your site is activated on the web server as well.

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

Our cloud hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which means that your sites will run without any problem even if your scripts are outdated. We realize that an old site does not invariably mean a vulnerable one as you may have implemented plenty of code modifications. This is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can select which version will be active for your shared web hosting account. You can change the version with only one click of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will take effect right away. If you wish to run both newer and older scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domains simultaneously.

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

Even if your sites were created with an older PHP version, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support several versions running simultaneously on our servers and each of them can be activated for your account with just a click of the mouse through our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition to the most recent PHP 8, we also offer 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4 and the older PHP 4, which has already been abandoned by the majority of web hosts, but we strongly think that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a site that took several years to build, as older scripting language syntax does not invariably suggest security weaknesses. Quite the opposite, a properly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an incorrectly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we’ll also offer you the opportunity to set a different version for each individual website within your account.
