PHP is among the most commonly used coding languages. It is pretty popular as it’s free software, which you can use to create interactive websites like social networking websites, e-commerce portals or school websites rather than static HTML sites. A PHP module should be activated on the web server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decrypted’. As there aren’t any license fees for this kind of module and the language offers limitless possibilities for the applications that you develop, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP websites. What’s more, there’re a lot of PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to have any coding expertise. Given the fact that there are a few PHP versions, you need to verify that the same version that you used while setting up your site is available on the server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Hosting
With our Linux cloud packages, you will be able to pick which version of PHP will be active for your account, as we support different versions. With as little as one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is published in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous versions. In this way, you will be able to host all the websites that you’ve built over the years. In contrast with many other web hosting companies, we won’t force you to update such websites, because a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have edited its code to prevent security loopholes. For your convenience’s sake, you’ll even be able to specify a different version of PHP for each website hosted in your hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Even if your sites were built with an older version of PHP, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support multiple versions running simultaneously on our servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with just one 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. The latter has already been abandoned by most web hosts, but we hold that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a website that took years to set up, as older scripting language syntax does not invariably mean safety breaches. Just the opposite, a rightly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a wrongly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we’ll also provide you with the opportunity to select a different version of PHP for each single site within the account.
