PHP is amongst the most commonly used web programming languages. It is extremely popular since it’s free software, which you can use to create responsive sites like community sites, online shops or online learning websites as opposed to static HTML-based sites. A PHP module should be available on the server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its code can be read. Since there aren’t any license charges for this type of module and the language offers endless possibilities for the web-based applications that you build, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites. On top of that, there’re lots of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without having to possess any programming capabilities. As there’re several PHP versions, you should check whether the same exact version that you used while building your website is activated on the web server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Website Hosting
With our website hosting services, you’ll be able to choose the PHP version that will be active for your shared web hosting account, as multiple versions are available on our servers. With only one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is released in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you have created throughout the years. In stark contrast to a lot of other hosting companies, we will not compel you to update such websites, because a script may be outdated, but this does not necessarily mean that it is vulnerable as you may have performed modifications to its source code to patch security holes. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to choose a different version of PHP for each individual website hosted in your account.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
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, since we support several versions running at the same time on our servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with just one click through our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Apart from the newest PHP 7, we also offer 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been abandoned by the great majority of hosting suppliers, but we believe that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a website that took several years to create, since older script language syntax doesn’t inevitably imply safety breaches. Quite the opposite, a rightly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an inadequately maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we will also give you the possibility to select a different PHP version for each individual website within the account.
