PHP is amongst the most commonly used open-source server-side scripting languages. It is quite popular because it’s free software, which can be used to develop responsive websites like community portals, online stores or online teaching sites rather than static HTML sites. A PHP module must be available on the web server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘decrypted’. Because there aren’t any license fees for this kind of module and the language provides unlimited options for the web-based apps that you develop, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP sites. Also, there are a huge number of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to have any programming know-how. Considering the fact that there’re a couple of versions of PHP, you have to check if the exact same version that you used whilst building your website is enabled on the web server as well.

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

We’ve made the decision not to prevent our present and potential customers from choosing the PHP version that their websites will use, which means that in case you purchase a cloud website hosting plan from our company, you will be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the hosting account itself, but also for each individual domain name hosted by you. This can be done with only one single mouse click through our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared hosting accounts are managed, so you won’t need to have any coding or technical skills. You will be able to manage websites built with both new and old scripts without having to deal with any complications, so if you decide to leave your current hosting services provider and move over to us, you can be certain that all the sites that you have set up throughout the years will continue to run perfectly.

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

Even if your sites were created with an older PHP version, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support different versions running simultaneously on our servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with no more than one click of the mouse via our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Other than the most recent PHP 7, we also offer support for 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been abandoned by the vast majority of hosting suppliers, but we strongly think that you should not be compelled to modify a website that took several years to develop, as older programming language syntax does not automatically imply safety weaknesses. Just the opposite, an adequately maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than an incorrectly maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we will also provide you with the opportunity to set a different version for each single site within the account.
