PHP is one of the most widely used open-source web programming languages. It’s rather popular because it’s free software, which you can use to develop responsive sites like social networks, web shops or e-learning websites instead of static HTML sites. A PHP module should be enabled on the web server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘translated’. Since there are no license taxes for this kind of module and the language offers countless possibilities for the web-based applications that you create, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites. Plus, there are a ton of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to possess any coding expertise. Given the fact that there’re a couple of PHP versions, you must confirm that the very same version that you used whilst creating your website is enabled on the server too.

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

If you purchase a shared web hosting plan from our company, you will never need to speculate over whether your sites are compatible with the hosting environment, as we support several versions of PHP for your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with just one mouse click and if you would like to change the version, the new settings will be applied instantaneously. In this way, several years of work on websites created with an older PHP version won’t go down the tubes. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain name hosted in your account, which suggests that you can use newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most hosting providers on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In stark contrast to them, we think that you should be the one to select the version that will be used by your very own sites.

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

Even in case your sites were created with an earlier PHP version, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support different versions running at the same time on our servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with just one click of the mouse through our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Other than the most recent PHP 7, we also offer support for 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4, which has already been dropped by the vast majority of hosting vendors, but we are strongly convinced that you should not be compelled to modify a site that took several years to develop, as older scripting language syntax does not invariably suggest safety breaches. Quite the opposite, a rightly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an incorrectly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we’ll also offer you the opportunity to choose a different PHP version for each single website within your account.
