PHP is among the most commonly used open-source web programming languages. It’s highly popular as it is free software, which you can use to create interactive sites like social networks, e-stores or online teaching portals as opposed to static HTML-based sites. A PHP module must be available on the server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its code can be ‘translated’. As there are no license fees for this sort of module and the language itself provides countless options for the web applications that you build, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites. Additionally, there’re a myriad of PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without having to possess any coding expertise. Given the fact that there’re a couple of PHP versions, you should confirm that the exact same version that you used whilst creating your website is installed on the server as well.

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

Our cloud web hosting servers support different PHP versions, which goes to say that your websites will work without any problems no matter if your PHP scripts are outdated. We accept the fact that an old site does not always equal a vulnerable one as you may have carried out lots of code mods. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can decide which one will be enabled for your web hosting account. The version can be changed with just one single click of the mouse via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will be applied instantaneously. If you wish to run both newer and older scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each domain name of yours at the same time.

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

Even if your sites were built with an older PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support multiple versions running at the same time on our servers and each one of them can be activated for your account with no more than one click through our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. In addition to 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 great majority of web hosts, but we maintain that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a site that took years to set up, since older programming language syntax doesn’t necessarily mean safety gaps. Just the opposite, a well-maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than an incorrectly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we’ll also provide you with the possibility to choose a different version for each site within the account.
