PHP is amongst the most commonly used class-based programming languages. It’s extremely popular because it’s free software, which can be used to develop responsive websites such as community websites, web stores or online teaching sites rather than static HTML sites. A PHP module should be available on the web server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its code can be interpreted. Since there are no license fees for this sort of module and the language provides unlimited options for the web applications that you build, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites. Additionally, there’re lots of PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to possess any programming capabilities. As there’re a few PHP versions, you should confirm that the very same version that you used whilst developing your site is activated 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different versions of PHP, which goes to say that your sites will work properly no matter if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We recognize the fact that an old site does not automatically equal an insecure one as you may have implemented plenty of modifications to its code. That’s the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can pick which version will be enabled for your account. You can change the version with a single click of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will take effect momentarily. If you would like to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each domain name of yours at the same time.

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

Even if your websites were built with an older version of PHP, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support multiple versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each one of them can be activated for your account with just one click via our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Besides the most recent PHP 7, we also support 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been dropped by most hosting suppliers, but we think that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a website that took several years to develop, since older programming language syntax does not always suggest safety gaps. Just the opposite, a rightly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a poorly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we’ll also give you the possibility to select a different PHP version for each single website within your account.
