PHP is one of the most widely used object-oriented programming languages. It is quite popular as it’s free software, which can be used to create responsive sites like social networks, online shops or e-learning sites as opposed to static HTML sites. A PHP module should be available on the server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its PHP code can be read. As there are no license charges for this type of module and the language itself offers unlimited possibilities for the web applications that you create, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites. Plus, there’re loads of PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to have any programming experience. Given the fact that there’re different versions of PHP, you need to check if the same version that you used while developing your website is installed on the web server too.

PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Web Hosting

With our cloud web hosting services, you’ll be able to choose which PHP version will be active for your shared hosting account, as we support multiple versions. With as little as one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is launched in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous ones. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you’ve built throughout the years. Unlike many other web hosting vendors, we will not force you to update such websites, as a script may be out of date, but this does not mean that it is vulnerable since you may have performed modifications to its source code to fill safety holes. For your convenience’s sake, you will even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each single site that you host in your shared web hosting account.

PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Even if your websites were created with an older PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support different versions running at the same time on our servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with just one click of the mouse through our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition to the latest PHP 8, we also offer 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 abandoned by the majority of hosting companies, but we strongly believe that you should not be compelled to modify a site that took years to create, since older scripting language syntax doesn’t automatically imply safety vulnerabilities. On the contrary, a correctly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than a non-maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we will also give you the opportunity to pick a different version for each individual site within your account.
