PHP is amongst the most commonly used open-source server-side scripting languages. It’s extremely popular since it’s free software, which you can use to create responsive sites such as community portals, web stores or e-learning sites as opposed to static HTML sites. A PHP module must be available on the server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its source code can be read. Since there are no license charges for such a module and the language itself offers incalculable possibilities for the apps that you create, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites. In addition, there are lots of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to have any programming know-how. As there’re a couple of versions of PHP, you should verify if the very same version that you used whilst building your website is present on the server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Web Hosting
With our Linux shared web hosting, you’ll be able to choose the version of PHP that will be active for your hosting account, as we offer support for multiple versions. With as little as one mouse click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is released in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you’ve developed throughout the years. In contrast to many other web hosting vendors, we won’t compel you to update such websites, because a script may be out of date, but this does not mean that it is vulnerable since you may have tweaked its source code to plug security gaps. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to choose a different PHP version for each website hosted in your account.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you’ve got a website built using an older PHP version and you have put time and energy toward setting it up, plugging security breaches and appending page content, you will need a hosting service that can support it, as almost all hosting companies these days offer support only for the most recently introduced PHP version and abandon the older ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you select the exact version that your sites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which goes to say that you will be able to use both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any manual modifications or misspending time and energy attempting to make your websites compatible with the hosting platform. You can change the current version via the Hepsia Control Panel and such a change will apply to the entire semi-dedicated account, but you will also be able to pick a different PHP version for each individual site that you host in your account by using an .htaccess config file.
