PHP is among the most commonly used interpreted programming languages. It’s rather popular since it is free software, which can be used to create responsive websites like community portals, e-shops or online learning websites rather than static HTML-based websites. A PHP module should be installed on the server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its code can be interpreted. Because there are no license taxes for this sort of module and the language itself offers endless possibilities for the web apps that you create, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites. Besides, there are an enormous number of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to have any programming knowledge. As there are several PHP versions, you need to check if the same exact version that you used while setting up your site is available on the web server too.

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

We’ve made a conscious decision not to restrict our present and prospective clients from selecting the PHP version that will be used by their sites, which goes to say that if you get a shared hosting package from our company, you will be able to select 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 accomplished with only one click through our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all accounts are managed, which is the reason why you won’t have to possess any technical or coding capabilities. You will be able to host sites built with both new and old PHP-based scripts without having to overcome any complications, so if you want to swap your present hosting company and switch over to us, you can be sure that all the sites that you’ve built over the years will continue to work faultlessly.

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

Even if your sites were created with an earlier version of PHP, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support multiple versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with no more than a click through our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Other than the newest PHP 8, we also support 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 majority of web hosts, but we strongly believe that you should not be compelled to modify a website that took years to create, since older programming language syntax doesn’t necessarily equal security weaknesses. Quite the opposite, a properly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than a badly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we’ll also provide you with the possibility to set a different version for each individual site within your account.
