PHP is one of the most commonly used server-side programming languages. It is exceptionally popular since it’s free software, which can be used to develop responsive sites such as community sites, e-stores or e-learning websites instead of static HTML-based websites. A PHP module must be activated on the web server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its code can be ‘translated’. Because there aren’t any license fees for this sort of module and the language itself provides incalculable options for the web applications that you create, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites. In addition, there are a large number of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without having to possess any programming skills. Since there’re a few versions of PHP, you need to confirm if the exact same version that you used whilst setting up your website is available on the web server too.

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

We’ve made a conscious decision not to restrict our present and prospective customers from picking what PHP version their websites will be using, which goes to say that if you purchase a cloud web hosting package from us, you’ll be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the hosting account itself, but also for each individual domain name hosted by you. This can be done with just one single click of the mouse through our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared accounts are managed, which is the reason why you won’t have to possess any technical or coding experience. You’ll be able to host websites based on both new and old PHP scripts without having to deal with any obstructions, so if you’d like to leave your current web hosting company and move over to us, you can be certain that all the websites that you have developed over the years will continue to run properly.

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

Even if your sites 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 at the same time on our servers and each of them can be activated for your account with no more than one click of the mouse from our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Besides the latest PHP 8, we also support 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 web hosting companies, but we think that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a website that took several years to build, since older programming language syntax doesn’t automatically mean safety gaps. Just the opposite, an adequately maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than a negligently maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we will also give you the possibility to specify a different version of PHP for each site within the account.
