PHP is amongst the most commonly used general-purpose web programming languages. It is extremely popular because it is free software, which you can use to develop responsive sites like community websites, online stores or online teaching websites instead of static HTML-based websites. A PHP module should be enabled on the server where a PHP website is hosted so that its PHP code can be interpreted. As there aren’t any license taxes for this kind of module and the language itself offers unlimited possibilities for the web-based apps that you set up, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites. In addition, there’re lots of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to possess any programming expertise. Given the fact that there are a couple of PHP versions, you should confirm whether the same version that you used while setting up your site is enabled on the web server too.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting servers support different PHP versions, which goes to say that your websites will work correctly no matter if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We realize that an old website doesn’t inevitably suggest a vulnerable one as you may have performed plenty of modifications to its code. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can decide which one will be active for your web hosting account. You can change the version with just one single click of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will take effect momentarily. In case you want to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each domain of yours simultaneously.

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

Even in case your sites were created with an earlier version of PHP, you will 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 one of them can be activated for your account with just a click of the mouse via our custom Hepsia Control Panel. In addition to the newest PHP 7, we also offer support for 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been abandoned by the majority of hosting vendors, but we feel that you should not be compelled to modify a site that took several years to create, as older scripting language syntax doesn’t automatically suggest safety holes. On the contrary, an adequately maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an unmaintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we will also give you the possibility to select a different version of PHP for each single site within your account.
