PHP is among the most widely used programming languages. It is exceptionally popular as it is free software, which you can use to set up interactive sites such as community portals, web stores or e-teaching websites instead of static HTML sites. A PHP module must be enabled on the server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its code can be interpreted. Because there aren’t any license taxes for this type of module and the language provides infinite options for the Internet applications that you set up, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites. What’s more, there’re loads of PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to have any programming abilities. Since there are a handful of PHP versions, you need to verify if the same version that you used whilst setting up your site is present on the server as well.

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

Our cloud web hosting servers support different PHP versions, which means that your websites will run without any problems no matter if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We realize that an old site doesn’t inevitably equal an insecure one as you may have performed plenty of source code mods. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can pick which one will be active for your shared web hosting account. The version can be changed with just one mouse click via your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied immediately. In case you want to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domains at the same time.

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

In case you have a website built with a previous PHP version and you’ve devoted time and effort towards setting it up, plugging security breaches and publishing content, you will need to find a web hosting service that can support it, since almost all hosting vendors nowadays offer support only for the most recently released PHP version and drop the previous ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you pick the version that your websites need. Our semi-dedicated service support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which means that you will be able to run both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any manual tweaks or frittering away time and energy striving to make your sites compatible with the web hosting environment. You can change the version via the Hepsia Control Panel and such a change will affect the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you will also be able to set a different PHP version for each single website hosted in your account by using an .htaccess config file.
