PHP is among the most widely used programming languages. It’s very popular because it’s free software, which can be used to create interactive sites such as social networking websites, web stores or e-learning websites rather than static HTML sites. A PHP module must be present on the server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its code can be ‘decoded’. Because there aren’t any license charges for this type of module and the language offers innumerable possibilities for the Internet applications that you set up, there are 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites. Besides, there are many open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without having to possess any coding expertise. Given the fact that there’re a number of PHP versions, you must verify that the same version that you used whilst developing your website is activated on the web server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Web Hosting
We have reached a decision not to prevent our current and prospective customers from selecting what PHP version their websites will be using, so in case you get a web hosting package from our company, you will be able to pick between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the hosting account as a whole, but also for each individual domain name hosted by you. This can be done with only one mouse click from our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared web hosting accounts are managed, so you will not need to possess any coding or technical experience. You’ll be able to run sites based on both old and new PHP scripts without having to overcome any hindrances, so if you wish to swap your present provider and move over to us, you can be certain that all the sites that you’ve developed throughout the years will continue to run impeccably.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Even in case your websites were built with an earlier PHP version, you will 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 semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be activated for your account with no more than a click of the mouse via our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Aside from the latest 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. The latter has already been dropped by the majority of hosting companies, but we strongly reckon that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a site that took several years to create, since older scripting language syntax doesn’t always suggest security loopholes. On the contrary, a correctly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a negligently maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we will also provide you with the opportunity to specify a different version for each single site within the account.
