PHP is among the most commonly used general-purpose server-side scripting languages. It’s rather popular since it’s free software, which you can use to create responsive websites like community portals, Internet shops or e-teaching websites rather than static HTML-based websites. A PHP module should be activated on the web server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘deciphered’. Since there aren’t any license fees for this type of module and the language provides countless options for the Internet apps that you build, there are 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites. What’s more, there are a huge number of PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to have any programming capabilities. Since there’re a few versions of PHP, you need to verify that the very same version that you used whilst setting up your website is activated on the server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which implies that your sites will run flawlessly even if your PHP scripts are out of date. We accept the fact that an old website doesn’t inevitably mean an insecure one as you may have done a lot of modifications to its code. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can pick which version will be active for your shared hosting account. You can change the version with one click of the mouse within your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied right away. In case you would like to run both newer and older scripts, there is even an option to use a different PHP version for each of your domains simultaneously.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Even in case your websites were created with an earlier version of PHP, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support different versions running at the same time on our servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with no more than one click via our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. Besides the newest 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, which has already been abandoned by most web hosting providers, but we reckon that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a website that took years to develop, as older script language syntax doesn’t always imply safety breaches. Quite the opposite, an adequately maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a non-maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we will also offer you the possibility to specify a different version of PHP for each individual site within your account.
