PHP is amongst the most commonly used open-source programming languages. It is quite popular as it’s free software, which you can use to build responsive sites like community portals, e-commerce portals or e-learning websites rather than static HTML-based websites. A PHP module must be enabled on the web server where a PHP website is hosted so that its code can be ‘decoded’. Since there are no license taxes for this type of module and the language itself offers innumerable options for the web applications that you build, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites. Besides, there’re heaps of PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without having to possess any coding skills. Given the fact that there are a number of versions of PHP, you ought to confirm whether the same exact version that you used while setting up your website is enabled on the server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting servers support several PHP versions, which implies that your websites will work without any problem no matter if your scripts are out of date. We know that an old website doesn’t always suggest a vulnerable one as you may have performed lots of modifications to its source code. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can select which version will be enabled for your web hosting account. You can change the version with one click of the mouse within your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied instantly. In case you’d like to run both older and newer scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each domain name of yours at the same time.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Even in case your websites were built with an older PHP version, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support several versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be activated for your account with no more than one click via our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Other than the newest PHP 8, we also offer support for 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4 and the older PHP 4, which has already been abandoned by the majority of web hosting providers, but we hold that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a website that took several years to create, as older programming language syntax does not invariably equal security gaps. Quite the opposite, a properly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than an inadequately maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also provide you with the possibility to pick a different version for each website within your account.
