PHP is one of the most widely used web programming languages. It is exceptionally popular since it is free software, which can be used to develop responsive sites like social networking sites, web shops or online teaching portals as opposed to static HTML-based websites. A PHP module should be installed on the web server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its code can be read. As there are no license taxes for this kind of module and the language itself offers infinite options for the web apps that you build, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites. Plus, there’re plenty of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to have any coding knowledge. Since there are a number of PHP versions, you need to confirm if the same exact version that you used while building your website is present on the web server too.

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

Our shared hosting servers support different versions of PHP, so your websites will work properly no matter if your PHP scripts are outdated. We acknowledge the fact that an old site doesn’t necessarily equal a vulnerable one as you may have implemented lots of source code mods. That’s the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can decide which version will be active for your hosting account. You can change the version with one click in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will be applied immediately. If you wish to run both older and newer scripts, there is even an option to use a different version of PHP for each of your domains simultaneously.

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

It’s our firm opinion that several years spent developing a site shouldn’t be wasted, which means that in case you order a semi-dedicated server from us, you’ll be able to use any script, regardless of whether it’s old or new. In stark contrast with many hosting companies, we support several different PHP versions on our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. Not only will you be able to activate the version that you need through your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the option to specify a different version for each website. The latter can be done simply by putting an .htaccess file inside the given site’s root directory. You can change the version both for a single site and for the entire account and the new settings will take effect in less than several minutes. With our hosting services, you can be certain that you won’t ever chance upon any site incompatibility difficulties.
