PHP is one of the most commonly used general-purpose programming languages. It is exceptionally popular because it’s free software, which you can use to set up responsive websites like social networks, online shops or online learning websites instead of static HTML sites. A PHP module must be available on the web server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘translated’. Because there are no license taxes for such a module and the language itself offers incalculable possibilities for the applications that you develop, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites. Also, there’re many PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without having to possess any programming know-how. Considering the fact that there’re a few PHP versions, you should verify whether the very same version that you used while creating your site is enabled on the server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Hosting
With our hosting, you’ll be able to select the PHP version that will be enabled for your shared hosting account, since several versions are enabled on our servers. With just one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is launched in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the previous ones. In this way, you will be able to host all the websites that you’ve set up throughout the years. Unlike lots of other web hosting providers, we will not compel you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this does not mean that it is vulnerable since you may have done modifications to its code to prevent safety gaps. For your convenience, you will even be able to set a different PHP version for each individual site hosted in your shared hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a site created using an older PHP version and you’ve committed time and effort to developing it, plugging safety loopholes and embedding content, you’ll need to find a web hosting service that can support it, since the majority of web hosts nowadays offer support only for the most recent PHP version and drop the earlier versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to permit you to choose the version that your sites require. Our semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, so you will be able to run both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any manual modifications or frittering away time and efforts striving to make your websites compatible with the hosting environment. You can change the current version from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will affect the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you’ll also be able to select a different PHP version for each single site that you host in your account by means of an .htaccess file.
