PHP is one of the most commonly used server-side coding languages. It is quite popular because it’s free software, which can be used to set up interactive sites such as community sites, e-stores or online learning websites instead of static HTML websites. A PHP module should be present on the server where a PHP website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘deciphered’. Since there are no license charges for this type of module and the language offers infinite options for the web-based applications that you build, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites. Additionally, there’re many open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without having to possess any programming experience. Considering the fact that there are different PHP versions, you need to confirm whether the exact same version that you used whilst developing your website is activated on the web server as well.

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

Our hosting servers support different PHP versions, which implies that your sites will run without any problems no matter if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We recognize the fact that an old site doesn’t always suggest an insecure one as you may have implemented lots of mods to its code. That’s the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can decide which one will be enabled for your shared web hosting account. The version can be changed with just one single click of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will take effect straight away. In case you’d like to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domain names at the same time.

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

In case you’ve got a site created in a previous PHP version and you’ve dedicated time and efforts to setting it up, patching safety gaps and adding page content, you’ll need a hosting service that can support it, since the great majority of hosting vendors nowadays offer support only for the most recently introduced PHP version and remove the previous versions. We, however, have decided to let you choose the version that your sites need. Our semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, so you’ll be able to run both older and newer scripts without losing any manual modifications or misspending time and effort attempting to make your sites compatible with the web hosting environment. The version can be changed via the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will affect the whole semi-dedicated account, but you will also have the ability to pick a different version for each single site hosted in your account using an .htaccess file.
