PHP is amongst the most widely used reflective programming languages. It is quite popular as it’s free software, which can be used to create interactive sites such as social networking websites, online shops or school websites as opposed to static HTML sites. A PHP module must be present on the server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its code can be interpreted. Because there aren’t any license taxes for this kind of module and the language offers incalculable possibilities for the web-based applications that you develop, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP websites. What’s more, there are a multitude of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to possess any programming skills. Considering the fact that there’re a number of versions of PHP, you must confirm whether the same version that you used whilst developing your website is available on the web server as well.

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

If you get a hosting package from us, you will never have to ponder whether or not your websites are compatible with the hosting environment, as different PHP versions are enabled on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with just one click and if you wish to change the current version, the update will take effect right away. Thus, several years of work on websites built with an older version of PHP will not go down the tubes. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which suggests that you can use newer and older scripts at the same time. Most web hosting providers on the marketplace offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. In contrast to them, we are strongly convinced that you should be the one to select the version that your very own websites will be using.

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

Even in case your sites were built with an earlier version of PHP, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support several versions running at the same time on our servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with no more than one click of the mouse through our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition to the latest 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. The latter has already been dropped by the majority of hosting vendors, but we strongly trust that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a website that took years to build, since older scripting language syntax doesn’t automatically suggest security gaps. Quite the opposite, a rightly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a mismaintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we will also give you the opportunity to set a different PHP version for each individual site within the account.
