PHP is amongst the most commonly used general-purpose server-side scripting languages. It is extremely popular since it’s free software, which you can use to set up interactive sites like community sites, web shops or online learning websites as opposed to static HTML-based websites. A PHP module must be installed on the server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decrypted’. Since there are no license charges for this sort of module and the language itself offers limitless possibilities for the Internet applications that you develop, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites. On top of that, there’re many PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to have any coding skills. Considering the fact that there are a couple of PHP versions, you ought to confirm that the exact same version that you used while developing your website is present on the server too.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Hosting

In case you get a hosting package from our company, you’ll never need to ask yourself whether or not your websites are compatible with the web hosting environment, since several PHP versions are activated on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to select PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with only one single click and in case you’d like to change the current version, the update will be applied momentarily. Thus, years of work on websites built with an older PHP version will not be in vain. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which suggests that you can run newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most hosting providers on the marketplace offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. In contrast to them, we strongly trust that you should be the one to select the version that your own websites will be using.

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

If you’ve got a website built using an older PHP version and you have contributed time and efforts towards setting it up, fixing safety holes and inputting content, you will need a hosting service that can support it, as nearly all web hosting providers today support only the most recently launched PHP version and give up the older ones. We, however, have decided to permit you to choose the version that your sites need. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which suggests that you will be able to run both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any custom tweaks or misspending time and energy striving to make your websites compatible with the hosting platform. You can change the version via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will apply to the entire account, but you’ll also have the ability to choose a different PHP version for each individual website hosted in your account using an .htaccess configuration file.
