PHP is among the most widely used multiparadigm programming languages. It is quite popular since it’s free software, which can be used to create responsive sites like social networking websites, web stores or e-teaching portals rather than static HTML-based websites. A PHP module must be available on the web server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘translated’. As there aren’t any license fees for this type of module and the language offers countless options for the web-based applications that you build, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites. On top of that, there are a multitude of PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to possess any programming experience. As there’re a handful of versions of PHP, you have to verify that the very same version that you used whilst setting up your website is available on the server as well.

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

Our shared web hosting servers support different PHP versions, so your websites will run without any problem even if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We know that an old website does not necessarily mean an insecure one as you may have performed a lot of source code modifications. That is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can select which version will be enabled for your shared hosting account. The version can be changed with just one click from your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied instantly. In case you want to run both newer and older scripts, there is even an option to use a different version of PHP for each of your domain names at the same time.

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

Our semi-dedicated servers support multiple PHP versions, which suggests that you will be able to use all the apps that you have developed through the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with every semi-dedicated account, will enable you to set the version that you need with one mouse click. You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. In case you wish to host multiple websites in one and the same account and they have distinct requirements with regards to the web hosting environment, you’ll be able to choose a different version for each of them irrespective of which version is selected for the account itself. That’s accomplishable thanks to our custom cloud web hosting platform, which allows us to run several versions of PHP all at once. By contrast, the majority of hosting providers normally support one, in very rare cases – two versions.
