PHP is among the most commonly used curly-brace programming languages. It is quite popular because it’s free software, which can be used to develop responsive websites like community websites, web stores or online learning websites rather than static HTML-based websites. A PHP module should be activated on the web server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘decrypted’. As there are no license taxes for this sort of module and the language itself provides countless options for the apps that you create, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites. Plus, there’re many open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to have any programming know-how. As there’re a number of PHP versions, you ought to make certain that the same exact version that you used while developing your site is available on the web server too.

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

We have made a decision not to restrict our current and potential customers from selecting what PHP version their sites will use, so if you purchase a cloud hosting package from us, you’ll 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 just one click through our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all shared hosting accounts are managed, so you won’t have to possess any technical or coding knowledge. You will be able to host websites based on both old and new PHP-based scripts without any problem, so if you decide to drop your current hosting company and migrate over to us, you can rest assured that all the sites that you have developed over the years will continue to run properly.

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

Even if your sites 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 simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each one of them can be activated for your account with no more than one click of the mouse via our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. Apart from the most recent PHP 7, we also support 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4, which has already been abandoned by most hosting companies, but we maintain that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a site that took years to build, since older script language syntax does not always suggest safety flaws. Quite the opposite, a properly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a non-maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we will also provide you with the opportunity to specify a different version of PHP for each single website within the account.
