PHP is among the most widely used coding languages. It’s pretty popular as it’s free software, which you can use to set up interactive sites like social networking sites, Internet shops or online learning websites rather than static HTML sites. A PHP module must be present on the web server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘deciphered’. Because there are no license taxes for such a module and the language provides unlimited options for the Internet applications that you create, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites. What is more, there are an immense number of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to possess any programming skills. Considering the fact that there’re a number of versions of PHP, you must confirm if the very same version that you used while creating your website is available on the server as well.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers support different PHP versions, which goes to say that your websites will run without any problems even if your PHP scripts are outdated. We know that an old site does not necessarily mean a vulnerable one as you may have carried out plenty of source code modifications. That is the reason why we support PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and you can choose which one will be active for your shared hosting account. The version can be changed with just one click within your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will take effect momentarily. In case you want to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domains simultaneously.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support multiple versions of PHP, so you will be able to run all the web-based apps that you have built over the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each single account, will permit you to set the needed version with one click of the mouse. You can choose between PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. If you wish to host multiple websites under the same account and they have distinct requirements in regards to the hosting environment, you will be able to set a different version for each one of them no matter which version has been selected for the account itself. That’s achievable thanks to our in-house built cloud platform, which permits us to run several versions of PHP at the same time. In contrast, the majority of hosting suppliers usually support one, occasionally two versions.
