PHP is amongst the most commonly used general-purpose programming languages. It is very popular as it is free software, which you can use to build responsive websites like social networking websites, e-shops or e-learning portals rather than static HTML-based websites. A PHP module must be enabled on the web server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decrypted’. As there are no license charges for such a module and the language provides countless possibilities for the Internet applications that you build, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites. Plus, there are a myriad of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to have any coding expertise. Since there’re a number of PHP versions, you need to verify that the exact same version that you used while creating your site is installed on the web server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Hosting
With our shared hosting
, you will be able to choose which version of PHP will be active for your shared account, since multiple versions are activated on our servers. With just one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is released in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you have built through the years. Unlike lots of other web hosting vendors, we will not force you to update such sites, as a script may be outdated, but this does not automatically mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have implemented modifications to its code to prevent safety gaps. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to choose a different version of PHP for each single site that you host in your shared web hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a site created with an older version of PHP and you have devoted time and effort to setting it up, repairing safety gaps and embedding content, you will need to find a web hosting service that can support it, as almost all hosting suppliers these days offer support only for the most recently introduced version of PHP and abandon the older ones. We, however, have decided to let you choose the exact version that your own websites need. Our semi-dedicated hosting
support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which means that you’ll be able to use both newer and older scripts without losing any manual settings or wasting time and efforts struggling to make your websites compatible with the hosting environment. The current version can be changed from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will apply to the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you’ll also be able to pick a different version for each single site that you host in your account by means of an .htaccess file.
