PHP is among the most widely used reflective programming languages. It is extremely popular because it is free software, which you can use to build interactive sites such as community websites, e-commerce portals or online learning websites as opposed to static HTML sites. A PHP module must be available on the web server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decoded’. Since there aren’t any license fees for this type of module and the language itself provides infinite possibilities for the applications that you build, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites. Additionally, there are plenty of PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to possess any programming expertise. As there are a number of versions of PHP, you must confirm if the same exact version that you used while setting up your site is installed on the server too.

PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Hosting

With our shared hosting, you will be able to select which version of PHP will be active for your shared web hosting account, since multiple versions are enabled on our servers. With just one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is launched in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the earlier versions. Thus, you will be able to host all the sites that you have set up over the years. In contrast with a lot of other hosting vendors, we will not compel you to update such sites, because a script may be outdated, but this does not mean that it is vulnerable as you may have modified its source code to plug safety breaches. For your convenience, you will even be able to specify a different PHP version for each website hosted in your account.

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

If you have a website built on an earlier version of PHP and you’ve dedicated time and energy towards setting it up, patching security breaches and inputting web page content, you’ll need to find a hosting service that can support it, since the vast majority of web hosting suppliers these days offer only the newest version of PHP and drop the earlier versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you select the exact version that your websites require. Our semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which suggests that you will be able to run both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any customizations or misspending time and energy attempting to make your websites compatible with the hosting platform. You can change the current version through the Hepsia Control Panel and such a change will affect the whole account, but you will also have the ability to select a different version for each individual website that you host in your account by means of an .htaccess configuration file.
