PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support
Learn more about PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, why it’s good to have them all and how to easily switch between different PHP versions.
PHP is one of the most widely used web programming languages. It is highly popular since it’s free software, which can be used to set up responsive websites like community websites, e-shops or online learning websites rather than static HTML-based sites. A PHP module must be activated on the web server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its code can be ‘deciphered’. Because there aren’t any license fees for such a module and the language itself provides endless possibilities for the applications that you build, there are hundreds of millions of PHP websites. Moreover, there are a vast number of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to have any coding skills. Considering the fact that there are a few versions of PHP, you ought to make sure that the same exact version that you used while setting up your site is activated on the server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Web Hosting
With our web hosting, you will be able to select the version of PHP that will be active for your shared web hosting account, since we offer support for several versions. With just one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is released in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older ones. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you’ve created over the years. In stark contrast with many other web hosting providers, we won’t force you to update such sites, because a script may be outdated, but this does not automatically mean that it’s insecure since you may have edited its source code to patch safety breaches. For the sake of your convenience, you’ll even be able to choose a different version of PHP for each individual site hosted in your shared hosting account.
