PHP is amongst the most commonly used curly-bracket programming languages. It’s exceptionally popular as it is free software, which can be used to develop interactive websites like social networking sites, Internet shops or online teaching portals instead of static HTML-based websites. A PHP module must be activated on the server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘translated’. Because there aren’t any license charges for this sort of module and the language offers incalculable possibilities for the web applications that you create, there’re 100s of millions of PHP sites. On top of that, there’re numerous open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to possess any coding capabilities. Since there are a couple of PHP versions, you must confirm whether the very same version that you used while setting up your site is enabled on the server as well.

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

We’ve made a decision not to restrict our present and future customers from picking the PHP version that will be used by their sites, so in case you get a cloud hosting package from our company, you will be able to pick between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the hosting account itself, but also for each individual domain that you host. This can be accomplished with only one click of the mouse from our custom Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared accounts are administered, so you won’t need to possess any coding or technical expertise. You will be able to host websites built with both new and old scripts without any trouble, so if you wish to change your current web hosting supplier and switch over to us, you can be certain that all the websites that you’ve built throughout the years will continue to work perfectly.

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

Even if your websites were built with an earlier PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support multiple versions running at the same time on our servers and each one of them can be activated for your account with no more than a click via our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Other than the most recent PHP 7, we also offer support for 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been dropped by most hosting companies, but we believe that you should not be compelled to modify a website that took years to build, as older scripting language syntax does not inevitably equal security holes. Just the opposite, a properly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an improperly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we’ll also give you the opportunity to set a different PHP version for each website within the account.
