PHP is amongst the most commonly used multiparadigm programming languages. It is exceptionally popular because it is free software, which can be used to set up interactive sites like community web portals, online stores or online learning websites as opposed to static HTML websites. A PHP module should be installed on the web server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its PHP code can be interpreted. Since there are no license fees for this kind of module and the language itself offers countless possibilities for the web apps that you build, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites. Furthermore, there are a multitude of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without having to possess any coding capabilities. Given the fact that there are a couple of PHP versions, you need to check whether the same version that you used while building your website is enabled on the web server too.

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

If you order a hosting plan from our company, you will never need to wonder whether your websites are compatible with the web hosting platform, since different PHP versions are installed on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with just one click of the mouse and in case you would like to change the current version, the new settings will be applied instantaneously. Thus, years of work on websites created with an older version will not go down the tube. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can use older and newer scripts at the same time. Most web hosting providers on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two PHP versions. Unlike them, we reckon that you should be the one to choose the version that will be used by your very own websites.

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

Even in case your websites were created with an earlier PHP version, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support multiple versions running at the same time on our servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with no more than one click of the mouse from our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. Apart from the newest 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 abandoned by the great majority of web hosts, but we strongly feel that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a site that took years to set up, as older scripting language syntax does not always imply safety breaches. On the contrary, a well-maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than an inadequately maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we will also give you the opportunity to pick a different version of PHP for each single website within the account.
