PHP is among the most widely used multiparadigm programming languages. It is highly popular as it is free software, which can be used to build interactive websites like social networking websites, e-shops or school websites rather than static HTML sites. A PHP module should be enabled on the server where a PHP website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decoded’. As there are no license charges for this sort of module and the language itself provides incalculable options for the web-based applications that you develop, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites. Moreover, there’re an immense number of PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to have any coding abilities. Considering the fact that there’re a number of versions of PHP, you have to verify if the same version that you used while building your site is present on the server too.

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

In case you buy a web hosting package from our company, you will never have to ponder whether your sites are compatible with the web hosting environment, since several PHP versions are available 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 of the mouse and if you need to change the version, the update will take effect right away. Thus, many years of work on sites created with an older version won’t go down the drain. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which suggests that you can run older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting providers on the marketplace offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. In stark contrast to them, we deem that you should be the one to pick the version that will be used by your own sites.

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

Even in case your sites were created with an earlier version of PHP, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support different versions running at the same time on our semi-dedicated servers and each one of them can be activated for your account with no more than one click of the mouse from our in-house built Hepsia 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 great majority of hosting providers, but we strongly feel that you should not be compelled to modify a site that took years to build, as older programming language syntax doesn’t necessarily suggest safety weaknesses. Just the opposite, an adequately maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a badly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we’ll also provide you with the opportunity to select a different version for each site within your account.
