PHP is among the most commonly used multi-paradigm programming languages. It’s pretty popular as it’s free software, which you can use to set up responsive sites such as social networking websites, e-stores or online learning sites instead of static HTML-based websites. A PHP module must be available on the web server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its source code can be read. As there are no license taxes for this kind of module and the language offers infinite possibilities for the web applications that you build, there are 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites. Furthermore, there are an immense number of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to have any programming expertise. As there’re different PHP versions, you should verify that the exact same version that you used whilst creating your site is available on the server too.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Website Hosting

If you order a website hosting plan from us, you’ll never need to question yourself on whether your sites are compatible with the hosting platform, as several PHP versions are installed on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to pick PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 or 5.5 with only one single click of the mouse and if you need to change the version, the update will be applied straight away. In this way, many years of work on sites created with an older PHP version will not be lost. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which suggests that you can run older and newer scripts at the same time. Most web hosting providers on the market support one, sometimes two PHP versions. In contrast to them, we reckon that you should be the one to select the version that will be used by your own websites.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support multiple PHP versions, which goes to say that you will be able to use all the Internet apps that you’ve built through the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with every semi-dedicated server account, will permit you to enable the needed version with one mouse click. You can select between PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. In case you would like to host multiple sites under one single account and they have different requirements related to the web hosting environment, you will be able to choose a different version for each one of them irrespective of which version has been enabled for the account as a whole. This is accomplishable owing to our custom-created cloud platform, which allows us to run multiple versions of PHP at once. In contrast, the great majority of hosting providers usually offer one, in very rare cases – two versions.
