PHP is one of the most commonly used class-based programming languages. It’s pretty popular since it is free software, which you can use to develop responsive sites like social networks, e-shops or e-learning websites instead of static HTML-based sites. A PHP module must be enabled on the server where a PHP site is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘deciphered’. Because there are no license taxes for this sort of module and the language itself offers infinite possibilities for the web apps that you create, there are 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites. On top of that, there’re plenty of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without having to possess any coding skills. Considering the fact that there are a few PHP versions, you have to confirm whether the exact same version that you used while building your site is installed on the web server as well.

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

With our cloud plans, you’ll be able to choose the version of PHP that will be enabled for your account, since multiple versions are enabled on our servers. With just one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is launched in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older versions. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you have developed throughout the years. Unlike a lot of other hosting suppliers, we won’t force you to update such sites, because a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have done modifications to its code to prevent security gaps. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each website that you host in your hosting account.

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

Even if your sites were created with an older version of PHP, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support different versions running simultaneously on our servers and each of them can be activated for your account with no more than a click of the mouse via our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. Besides the most recent 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. The latter has already been dropped by the vast majority of web hosts, but we are convinced that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a website that took several years to create, since older programming language syntax doesn’t automatically equal security loopholes. On the contrary, a rightly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than a wrongly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we will also give you the possibility to choose a different version of PHP for each individual site within the account.
