PHP is among the most commonly used general-purpose server-side programming languages. It’s very popular because it is free software, which you can use to build responsive websites like social networking sites, online stores or e-teaching websites instead of static HTML sites. A PHP module should be present on the server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its source code can be ‘deciphered’. As there aren’t any license fees for this type of module and the language offers limitless options for the apps that you set up, there are 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites. Moreover, there are heaps of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without having to possess any programming expertise. Considering the fact that there’re several versions of PHP, you must confirm if the same exact version that you used while developing your site is present on the web server too.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Hosting

With our hosting, you will be able to choose the PHP version that will be enabled for your web hosting account, as several versions are available on our servers. With only one 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 unveiled in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older versions. In this way, you will be able to host all the sites that you have developed over the years. Unlike a lot of other web hosting vendors, we won’t force you to update such sites, because a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it is insecure as you may have modified its code to fill safety gaps. For the sake of your convenience, you’ll even be able to set a different version of PHP for each individual site hosted in your shared account.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

We’re of the firm opinion that several years spent building a site should not go down the tube, which goes to say that if you get a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to use any script, regardless of whether it’s new or old. Unlike a lot of web hosting companies, we support several different PHP versions on our revolutionary cloud hosting platform – 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. You will not only be able to enable the version that you need through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you will also have the opportunity to choose a different PHP version for each single website. This can be accomplished merely by placing an .htaccess file in the root folder of the given site. You can change the version either for a single site or for the whole account and the update will be applied in just a couple of minutes. With our web hosting services, you can rest assured that you won’t ever face any site incompatibility problems.
