PHP is among the most commonly used open-source scripting languages. It’s highly popular as it is free software, which you can use to set up responsive websites such as community portals, Internet shops or e-teaching sites rather than static HTML-based websites. A PHP module should be installed on the web server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘decrypted’. As there are no license charges for such a module and the language provides countless possibilities for the web-based apps that you build, there are 100s of millions of PHP websites. In addition, there are a lot of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to have any coding capabilities. Given the fact that there are a handful of versions of PHP, you ought to verify if the same version that you used whilst building your site is activated on the server too.

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

We have made a decision not to prevent our current and future clients from picking what PHP version their websites will use, which implies that in case you get a cloud web hosting package from us, you’ll be able to pick between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the hosting account itself, but also for each domain that you host. This can be accomplished with only one click of the mouse through our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all shared accounts are managed, which is the reason why you won’t have to possess any technical or programming abilities. You’ll be able to run websites built with both old and new PHP-based scripts without having to overcome any problems, so if you want to abandon your present web hosting company and move over to us, you can rest assured that all the sites that you have developed throughout the years will continue to work impeccably.

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

Even if your websites were created with an earlier version of PHP, you will 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 enabled for your account with just a click of the mouse via our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. Besides the most recent 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 abandoned by the majority of hosting companies, but we reckon that you should not be forced to modify a site that took years to set up, as older programming language syntax doesn’t necessarily suggest safety breaches. Just the opposite, a well-maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than a non-maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also offer you the possibility to specify a different version for each single website within the account.
