PHP is one of the most commonly used curly-bracket programming languages. It is very popular as it is free software, which can be used to build responsive websites like community portals, Internet shops or e-teaching websites as opposed to static HTML-based websites. A PHP module should be available on the web server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘deciphered’. As there aren’t any license taxes for such a module and the language offers countless options for the web-based apps that you build, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP sites. What’s more, there are a huge number of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to possess any programming expertise. As there are a few versions of PHP, you have to check if the very same version that you used whilst creating your site is enabled on the server too.

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

With our cloud hosting service, you will be able to choose the version of PHP that will be enabled for your shared web hosting account, as multiple versions are supported on our servers. With as little as one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is introduced in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older versions. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you have created throughout the years. In contrast with a lot of other hosting suppliers, we will not force you to update such sites, because a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it’s insecure as you may have edited its source code to prevent safety breaches. For your convenience’s sake, you’ll even be able to pick a different PHP version for each individual website hosted in your web hosting account.

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

Even if your websites were created with an earlier PHP version, 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 activated for your account with just one click via our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. Other than the newest PHP 8, we also support 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 dropped by most web hosting companies, but we strongly believe that you should not be compelled to modify a website that took years to set up, since older programming language syntax does not inevitably suggest security loopholes. On the contrary, a rightly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an inadequately maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we will also provide you with the possibility to pick a different version of PHP for each single website within your account.
