PHP is one of the most commonly used multi-paradigm programming languages. It is rather popular as it is free software, which you can use to create interactive sites such as community websites, online shopping portals or e-learning sites instead of static HTML websites. A PHP module should be available on the web server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its code can be ‘decoded’. As there aren’t any license taxes for such a module and the language itself provides innumerable options for the web applications that you build, there are 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites. Moreover, there’re an enormous number of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to have any programming know-how. Given the fact that there are a few PHP versions, you must confirm if the very same version that you used while setting up your website is activated on the web server too.

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

We have made the decision not to restrict our current and potential clients from picking what PHP version will be used by their websites, so if you get a shared hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to pick between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the hosting account in general, but also for each domain name hosted by you. This can be done with just one click from our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all shared accounts are administered, so you will not need to have any technical or programming experience. You’ll be able to host websites based on both old and new scripts without having to overcome any complications, so if you’d like to swap your present web hosting company and move over to us, you can be sure that all the sites that you have set up over the years will continue to run correctly.

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

Even if your websites were created with an earlier PHP version, you’ll 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 one of them can be enabled for your account with just one click from our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Aside from 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. The latter has already been dropped by most web hosting providers, but we strongly trust that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a website that took years to set up, as older scripting language syntax doesn’t necessarily mean safety flaws. Just the opposite, a correctly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than an incompetently maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we will also provide you with the opportunity to choose a different version for each site within the account.
