PHP is among the most commonly used open-source web programming languages. It’s very popular since it is free software, which can be used to set up interactive websites such as social networks, web stores or e-teaching sites rather than static HTML-based websites. A PHP module must be installed on the web server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its source code can be ‘translated’. Because there are no license taxes for this kind of module and the language itself offers limitless options for the web applications that you develop, there are hundreds of millions of PHP websites. Furthermore, there’re many PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to have any programming knowledge. As there are a couple of versions of PHP, you need to make certain that the same version that you used whilst developing your website is present on the web server as well.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Web Hosting

Our web hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which implies that your websites will run without any problems even if your scripts are out of date. We recognize the fact that an old site doesn’t always equal an insecure one as you may have performed lots of modifications to its code. That’s why we support PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and you can select which one will be enabled for your web hosting account. The version can be changed with one mouse click in your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will take effect instantaneously. In case you’d like to run both newer and older scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each domain name of yours at the same time.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support multiple versions of PHP, which suggests that you will be able to run all the web apps that you’ve built through the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated server account, will permit you to enable the version that you need with only one click. You can choose between PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. In case you want to host multiple websites under the very same account and they have different requirements with regard to the web hosting platform, you will be able to pick a different version for each and every one of them regardless of which version is selected for the account itself. This is achievable owing to our custom cloud platform, which allows us to run multiple versions of PHP simultaneously. In contrast, the great majority of web hosting suppliers typically offer one, in exceptionally rare cases – two versions.
