PHP is amongst the most widely used general-purpose web programming languages. It’s highly popular as it’s free software, which can be used to build responsive sites such as community portals, online shopping portals or online teaching portals instead of static HTML-based sites. A PHP module must be present on the web server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its code can be ‘translated’. Since there aren’t any license fees for this sort of module and the language provides unlimited possibilities for the Internet applications that you set up, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites. On top of that, there’re an enormous number of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without having to possess any programming expertise. Given the fact that there’re a number of versions of PHP, you must check whether the exact same version that you used whilst developing your website is available on the web server too.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Hosting

If you get a cloud hosting plan from our company, you will never need to ponder over whether or not your websites are compatible with the hosting environment, since we offer different PHP versions for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to pick PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 or 4 with just one single click and if you’d like to change the current version, the update will be applied instantaneously. In this way, several years of work on sites created with an older version of PHP won’t be lost. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which means that you can use older and newer scripts at the same time. Most hosting companies on the market offer one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In stark contrast with them, we think that you should be the one to pick the version that your own websites will be using.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans support multiple PHP versions, which means that you’ll be able to use all the applications that you’ve developed through the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each single semi-dedicated account, will enable you to activate the needed version with one single click. You can choose between PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. If you would like to host multiple websites in the same account and they have different requirements respecting the hosting platform, you’ll be able to choose a different PHP version for each and every one of them regardless of which version has been selected for the account as a whole. This is accomplishable thanks to our in-house created cloud hosting platform, which allows us to run multiple versions of PHP all at once. In comparison, most hosting vendors normally offer one, occasionally two versions.
