PHP is one of the most widely used open-source server-side programming languages. It is quite popular since it is free software, which can be used to set up responsive sites like social networks, e-stores or online teaching portals rather than static HTML-based websites. A PHP module must be activated on the server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its code can be ‘decoded’. Since there aren’t any license fees for such a module and the language provides countless options for the applications that you set up, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites. Moreover, there’re a myriad of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to have any coding experience. Since there are a couple of PHP versions, you need to check if the same version that you used whilst developing your site is present on the server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Website Hosting
Our website hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which implies that your sites will run without any problem no matter if your PHP scripts are outdated. We know that an old site does not inevitably equal a vulnerable one as you may have implemented plenty of mods to its code. This is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can decide which version will be active for your web hosting account. You can change the version with one click of the mouse within your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will take effect instantly. In case you wish to run both newer and older scripts, there is even an option to use a different PHP version for each domain name of yours at the same time.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Even if your sites were built with an older PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support several versions running at the same time on our servers and each one of them can be activated for your account with no more than a click of the mouse from our custom Hepsia Control Panel. Aside from the latest 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 the great majority of web hosting suppliers, but we consider that you should not be compelled to modify a website that took several years to build, as older scripting language syntax doesn’t invariably mean safety gaps. Just the opposite, a well-maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an unmaintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also give you the opportunity to specify a different version for each single site within your account.
