PHP is amongst the most commonly used interpreted programming languages. It’s quite popular as it’s free software, which you can use to develop responsive websites such as community sites, web shops or e-teaching websites as opposed to static HTML-based sites. A PHP module must be present on the web server where a PHP site is hosted so that its source code can be ‘translated’. As there are no license fees for this kind of module and the language itself provides countless possibilities for the web apps that you set up, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites. Moreover, there are a large number of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without having to possess any programming abilities. Considering the fact that there’re a handful of versions of PHP, you have to check if the same version that you used whilst creating your site is activated on the server as well.

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

We’ve made a conscious decision not to prevent our present and future customers from selecting the PHP version that their websites will be using, which goes to say that in case you get a web hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to pick between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account in general, but also for each single domain name that you host. This can be done with only one single click of the mouse from our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all accounts are managed, so you won’t have to possess any coding or technical skills. You will be able to run websites based on both new and old PHP scripts without having to cope with any problems, so if you decide to swap your present web hosting supplier and migrate over to us, you can be sure that all the websites that you’ve created through the years will continue to work flawlessly.

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

If you’ve got a website built using an older PHP version and you’ve funneled time and effort into developing it, plugging security gaps and publishing web page content, you’ll need to find a web hosting service that can support it, since nearly all web hosting providers nowadays support only the newest version of PHP and give up the previous versions. We, however, have decided to let you choose the exact version that your very own sites need. Our semi-dedicated plans support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which suggests that you will be able to use both newer and older scripts without losing any custom settings or wasting time and effort struggling to make your websites compatible with the hosting environment. You can change the version from the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will affect the whole account, but you’ll also have the ability to set a different version for each site hosted in your account by using an .htaccess config file.
