PHP is one of the most commonly used general-purpose scripting languages. It is extremely popular since it is free software, which you can use to create responsive sites like social networking sites, shopping portals or online teaching websites as opposed to static HTML sites. A PHP module should be present on the web server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its code can be interpreted. As there aren’t any license charges for this sort of module and the language offers endless options for the web applications that you build, there’re 100s of millions of PHP sites. On top of that, there’re an immense number of PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without having to possess any programming know-how. Considering the fact that there’re a handful of versions of PHP, you must verify whether the same exact version that you used while developing your site is enabled on the server too.

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

Our cloud web hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which goes to say that your sites will run without any problems even if your scripts are outdated. We recognize the fact that an old website doesn’t always imply an insecure one as you may have implemented plenty of modifications to its source code. That’s the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can select which one will be enabled for your web hosting account. You can change the version with only one single mouse click within your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied straight away. If you wish to run both older and newer scripts, there is even an option to use a different version of PHP for each domain name of yours simultaneously.

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

Even if your sites were built with an earlier version of PHP, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support several versions running at the same time on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with just a click from our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. Aside from the newest PHP 8, we also offer support for 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 dropped by the great majority of web hosting companies, but we hold that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a site that took several years to create, since older scripting language syntax does not invariably mean security weaknesses. Quite the opposite, a well-maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than a non-maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we will also give you the opportunity to choose a different version for each single site within the account.
