PHP is among the most widely used curly-brace programming languages. It’s rather popular as it is free software, which you can use to build responsive websites like social networking websites, online shops or e-learning sites as opposed to static HTML-based websites. A PHP module must be installed on the web server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its code can be ‘decrypted’. Because there aren’t any license taxes for this type of module and the language offers innumerable options for the apps that you create, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites. Also, there are a ton of PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to have any coding expertise. As there are several PHP versions, you ought to confirm if the same exact version that you used whilst creating your site is installed on the web server as well.

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

In case you get a website hosting package from our company, you will never have to speculate as to whether your websites are compatible with the web hosting platform, as we support several PHP versions for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with only one single click of the mouse and in case you would like to change the version, the new settings will take effect right away. Thus, years of work on sites created with an older version will not go down the tube. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different PHP version for each domain name hosted in your account, which implies that you can use newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting companies on the market offer one, sometimes two PHP versions. In contrast with them, we trust that you should be the one to select the version that your own sites will be using.

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

In case you’ve got a website based on an earlier PHP version and you have contributed time and efforts towards setting it up, filling safety breaches and appending web content, you will need to find a web hosting service that can support it, since almost all web hosting suppliers nowadays offer only the most recently launched PHP version and give up the older ones. We, however, have decided to let you pick the exact version that your very own websites need. Our Linux semi-dedicated packages support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, so you will be able to run both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any customizations or wasting time and efforts attempting to make your websites compatible with the web hosting platform. The current version can be changed from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will affect the whole semi-dedicated server account, but you will also be able to select a different version of PHP for each individual site hosted in your account by using an .htaccess config file.
