PHP is one of the most widely used open-source scripting languages. It’s quite popular because it’s free software, which can be used to create responsive sites such as social networking sites, e-stores or online learning portals instead of static HTML websites. A PHP module should be activated on the web server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its code can be ‘decrypted’. Since there aren’t any license taxes for such a module and the language itself offers countless possibilities for the web-based apps that you build, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites. Additionally, there’re a ton of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to possess any coding know-how. Considering the fact that there’re a number of versions of PHP, you ought to confirm whether the very same version that you used whilst building your website is installed on the web server too.

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

We have made a decision not to restrict our present and future customers from choosing what PHP version their sites will be using, which goes to say that in case you get a website hosting plan from us, you will be able to select between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the account itself, but also for each individual domain hosted by you. This can be accomplished with just one single mouse click through our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all accounts are managed, so you won’t need to possess any coding or technical expertise. You’ll be able to run websites built with both new and old PHP scripts without trouble, so if you decide to leave your present web hosting company and move over to us, you can be sure that all the websites that you’ve set up throughout the years will continue to work impeccably.

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

Even if your websites were created with an earlier PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support multiple versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with no more than a click of the mouse from our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. Other than the newest PHP 8, we also offer support for 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 dropped by the vast majority of hosting suppliers, but we strongly reckon that you should not be forced to modify a website that took years to develop, as older programming language syntax does not invariably mean security weaknesses. Just the opposite, an adequately maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a non-maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also provide you with the opportunity to pick a different PHP version for each single website within the account.
