PHP is one of the most commonly used curly-brace programming languages. It is pretty popular since it is free software, which you can use to create interactive websites like community portals, online shopping portals or e-teaching portals instead of static HTML sites. A PHP module should be enabled on the web server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its code can be ‘deciphered’. Because there are no license fees for this kind of module and the language itself provides infinite options for the Internet applications that you develop, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP sites. On top of that, there’re a myriad of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without having to possess any programming experience. Considering the fact that there are a number of versions of PHP, you need to confirm whether the exact same version that you used whilst developing your site is present on the web server as well.

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

We’ve decided not to restrict our current and potential clients from picking the PHP version that will be used by their sites, which means that in case you buy a shared web hosting plan from our company, you will be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account itself, but also for each single domain name hosted by you. This can be accomplished with only one single click from our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel via which all accounts are administered, so you will not need any technical or programming expertise. You will be able to run websites built with both new and old PHP-based scripts without having to overcome any problems, so if you wish to abandon your current web hosting provider and move over to us, you can rest assured that all the websites that you have set up over the years will continue to work properly.

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

Even if your websites were built with an older version of PHP, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support several versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with just a click of the mouse from our custom Hepsia Control Panel. Apart from the newest PHP 8, we also offer support for 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, which has already been abandoned by the great majority of hosting providers, but we strongly deem that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a website that took years to build, since older scripting language syntax doesn’t automatically imply security breaches. On the contrary, a well-maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a negligently maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we will also offer you the possibility to specify a different version for each single website within your account.
