PHP is one of the most commonly used open-source server-side programming languages. It is rather popular since it is free software, which you can use to set up responsive websites such as community sites, web stores or e-teaching sites instead of static HTML-based sites. A PHP module should be activated on the web server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its PHP code can be read. As there are no license fees for this type of module and the language offers endless possibilities for the Internet apps that you develop, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites. Furthermore, there’re loads of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to have any programming experience. Considering the fact that there’re a few versions of PHP, you should confirm whether the same version that you used whilst creating your website is enabled on the web server too.

PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which suggests that your websites will work properly even if your scripts are out of date. We know that an old site doesn’t necessarily mean a vulnerable one as you may have implemented lots of source code modifications. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can decide which version will be active for your shared web hosting account. The version can be changed with a single click of the mouse inside your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will take effect straight away. In case you want to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each of your domains at the same time.

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

If you have a site built on an earlier PHP version and you have dedicated time and efforts on developing it, repairing security gaps and entering content, you’ll need a web hosting service that can support it, since the great majority of hosting providers nowadays support only the most recently published version of PHP and drop the earlier versions. We, however, have decided to permit you to select the exact version that your sites require. Our semi-dedicated services support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which means that you’ll be able to use both newer and older scripts without losing any manual settings or wasting time and effort striving to make your websites compatible with the web hosting environment. The version can be changed through the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will apply to the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you will also be able to choose a different version of PHP for each site that you host in your account by means of an .htaccess config file.
