PHP is among the most commonly used open-source server-side coding languages. It’s very popular since it’s free software, which can be used to set up interactive sites such as community portals, web stores or online teaching portals as opposed to static HTML sites. A PHP module must be installed on the server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘deciphered’. Because there aren’t any license taxes for this sort of module and the language itself offers unlimited possibilities for the apps that you set up, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites. Also, there’re an enormous number of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to possess any coding abilities. Since there are a couple of PHP versions, you need to verify that the same exact version that you used while creating your website is available on the web server as well.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Hosting

With our Linux cloud hosting, you will be able to pick the PHP version that will be active for your account, since we offer support for several versions. With only one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and anytime a new version is launched in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the earlier versions. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you’ve created through the years. In stark contrast with a lot of other web hosting companies, we won’t force you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this does not automatically mean that it is insecure as you may have performed modifications to its source code to plug security loopholes. For your convenience, you will even be able to choose a different PHP version for each individual website that you host in your web hosting account.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

Even if your websites were built with an earlier PHP version, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support multiple versions running at the same time on our servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with no more than one click of the mouse from our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. Aside from the latest PHP 5.5 and PHP 5.4, we also offer 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4, which has already been abandoned by the great majority of web hosting companies, but we strongly maintain that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a website that took years to develop, since older programming language syntax doesn’t always mean safety breaches. Just the opposite, a correctly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an improperly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we will also provide you with the opportunity to specify a different PHP version for each website within your account.
