PHP is one of the most widely used multiparadigm programming languages. It is very popular as it’s free software, which can be used to build responsive websites like social networks, web stores or online teaching websites as opposed to static HTML sites. A PHP module should be present on the web server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its source code can be read. Because there aren’t any license taxes for such a module and the language offers innumerable possibilities for the apps that you develop, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites. Also, there’re a ton of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to have any coding capabilities. Given the fact that there are a handful of versions of PHP, you ought to confirm that the very same version that you used while setting up your website is activated on the web server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Hosting
With our Linux shared hosting, you will be able to select the PHP version that will be active for your web hosting account, as different versions are installed on our servers. With only one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is introduced in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous ones. Thus, you will be able to host all the sites that you have built through the years. In contrast with lots of other web hosts, we will not force you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this does not mean that it’s insecure as you may have implemented modifications to its source code to fill security gaps. For your convenience’s sake, you will even be able to select a different version of PHP for each website that you host in your hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Even if your sites were built with an earlier PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support several versions running at the same time on our servers and each of them can be activated for your account with no more than a click of the mouse from our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. In addition to the newest PHP 8, we also offer support for 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 the great majority of web hosting suppliers, but we feel that you should not be compelled to modify a site that took several years to set up, since older script language syntax does not inevitably mean safety breaches. Quite the opposite, a properly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a poorly maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we will also offer you the opportunity to specify a different PHP version for each individual site within the account.
