PHP is among the most widely used multiparadigm programming languages. It’s highly popular as it’s free software, which you can use to develop interactive websites such as community portals, online stores or e-learning sites instead of static HTML-based sites. A PHP module must be present on the web server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decrypted’. As there are no license charges for this sort of module and the language itself provides unlimited options for the apps that you build, there are 100s of millions of PHP websites. Also, there’re an immense number of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without having to possess any coding experience. Since there are several versions of PHP, you must make certain that the very same version that you used whilst creating your site is installed on the server too.

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

With our shared hosting, you will be able to choose the version of PHP that will be enabled for your shared web hosting account, since we support several versions. With only one mouse click, 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 older versions. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you have created over the years. In contrast with many other hosting companies, we won’t force you to update such websites, because a script may be out of date, but this does not necessarily mean that it is insecure since you may have tweaked its source code to repair safety gaps. For your convenience, you will even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each site hosted in your shared web hosting account.

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

We’re unwavering in our opinion that several years spent building a site should not be wasted, so in case you order a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to run any script, new or old. In contrast to a lot of web hosting companies, we support several different PHP versions on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. Not only will you have the ability to activate the required version via your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the possibility to specify a different PHP version for each single website. This can be done merely by putting an .htaccess file within the given site’s root directory. You can change the current version either for a single site or for the account itself and the change will take effect in less than several minutes. With our hosting services, you can be sure that you won’t ever experience any website compatibility difficulties.
