PHP is among the most commonly used curly-brace programming languages. It is extremely popular as it’s free software, which you can use to create interactive sites such as community portals, web stores or online learning sites instead of static HTML-based websites. A PHP module must be present on the server where a PHP site is hosted so that its source code can be read. As there are no license fees for this type of module and the language itself provides innumerable options for the applications that you create, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP sites. Besides, there are numerous open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to have any programming knowledge. Since there are different PHP versions, you ought to confirm whether the same version that you used whilst creating your website is activated on the web server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Web Hosting
With our shared web hosting, you’ll be able to choose the PHP version that will be active for your account, as multiple versions are enabled on our servers. With only one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is published in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous ones. In this way, you will be able to host all the websites that you have created throughout the years. In contrast with many other hosting companies, we won’t force you to update such websites, because a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it’s insecure since you may have implemented modifications to its source code to patch security holes. For your convenience’s sake, you’ll even be able to set a different version of PHP for each site that you host in your shared hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’ve got a website created with an older version of PHP and you’ve put in time and energy into setting it up, fixing safety loopholes and appending page content, you will need to find a hosting service that can support it, as the vast majority of web hosts nowadays offer only the latest version of PHP and abandon the previous ones. We, however, have decided to allow you to pick the version that your very own websites need. Our semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which means that you will be able to run both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any custom settings or wasting time and efforts struggling to make your sites compatible with the hosting platform. The current version can be changed from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will affect the whole account, but you will also have the ability to set a different version for each single website hosted in your account using an .htaccess configuration file.
