PHP is one of the most widely used general-purpose server-side programming languages. It’s quite popular because it’s free software, which can be used to build responsive websites like community portals, Internet shops or e-teaching sites instead of static HTML sites. A PHP module should be available on the web server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its code can be read. Because there are no license fees for this type of module and the language itself provides endless possibilities for the web apps that you build, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites. Furthermore, there’re heaps of PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without having to possess any coding expertise. Considering the fact that there are several PHP versions, you need to ensure that the very same version that you used while developing your site is available on the web server too.

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

With our cloud plans, you’ll be able to choose which PHP version will be active for your shared account, as several versions are supported on our servers. With just one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is launched in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older ones. In this way, you will be able to host all the websites that you have created throughout the years. In stark contrast to many other hosting vendors, we won’t compel you to update such sites, because a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it’s insecure as you may have tweaked its code to prevent safety gaps. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each single website that you host in your web hosting account.

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

We are of the strong opinion that several years spent building a site should not go down the tubes, so if you purchase a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to use any script, irrespective of whether it is old or new. In stark contrast with lots of web hosting vendors, we support several different versions of PHP on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only be able to enable the required version through your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the opportunity to set a different version for each single website. The latter can be done simply by uploading an .htaccess file to the root directory of the given site. You can change the version either for a single website or for the entire account and the update will take effect in less than a few minutes. With our hosting services, you can be sure that you won’t ever come across any site compatibility difficulties.
