PHP is among the most widely used server-side scripting languages. It’s pretty popular as it’s free software, which can be used to create responsive sites like community web portals, online shops or e-teaching portals rather than static HTML-based sites. A PHP module must be present on the server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its code can be ‘decoded’. As there aren’t any license taxes for such a module and the language provides infinite possibilities for the web apps that you create, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP websites. Moreover, there’re a large number of PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to have any programming capabilities. Given the fact that there’re a number of PHP versions, you should confirm if the same exact version that you used whilst creating your website is present on the server as well.

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

With our Linux cloud hosting packages, you’ll be able to pick the PHP version that will be active for your web hosting account, as different versions are installed on our servers. With just one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is launched in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the previous versions. In this way, you will be able to host all the websites that you have built over the years. In stark contrast to many other web hosting vendors, we will not force you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it is vulnerable as you may have implemented modifications to its code to fix safety breaches. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to specify a different PHP version for each single website that you host in your hosting account.

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

Even in case your sites were built with an earlier PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support several versions running simultaneously on our servers and each one of them can be activated for your account with just a click through our custom Hepsia Control Panel. Apart from the most recent PHP 7, we also offer support for 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been abandoned by most web hosting companies, but we strongly believe that you should not be compelled to modify a website that took years to set up, since older scripting language syntax does not always imply security breaches. Just the opposite, a well-maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than a wrongly maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also give you the opportunity to specify a different version of PHP for each site within your account.
