PHP is among the most commonly used server-side coding languages. It’s highly popular as it is free software, which can be used to develop responsive sites such as community sites, shopping portals or online teaching portals rather than static HTML-based websites. A PHP module must be enabled on the server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decrypted’. As there aren’t any license charges for this kind of module and the language provides unlimited options for the web apps that you set up, there’re 100s of millions of PHP websites. What is more, there’re plenty of PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without having to possess any coding expertise. As there are different PHP versions, you need to ensure that the very same version that you used whilst developing your website is installed on the web server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Website Hosting
We have made the decision not to restrict our present and future customers from choosing the PHP version that their websites will be using, which suggests that in case you order a website hosting plan from us, you will be able to select between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the account itself, but also for each domain hosted by you. This can be accomplished with only one click from our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all shared accounts are managed, so you won’t need to have any coding or technical expertise. You will be able to run sites based on both old and new PHP scripts without having to cope with any obstacles, so if you wish to change your current hosting company and migrate over to us, you can be certain that all the websites that you’ve created throughout 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 built with an earlier 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 semi-dedicated servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with just a click from our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Apart from 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 abandoned by most hosting companies, but we strongly believe that you should not be forced to modify a site that took years to build, as older scripting language syntax doesn’t necessarily suggest safety breaches. Quite the opposite, a properly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an improperly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we’ll also offer you the possibility to select a different PHP version for each site within your account.
