PHP is among the most commonly used imperative programming languages. It is exceptionally popular since it is free software, which you can use to build responsive websites like social networks, online stores or online learning websites as opposed to static HTML sites. A PHP module should be activated on the server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘translated’. Because there are no license taxes for this sort of module and the language offers limitless options for the applications that you develop, there are 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites. On top of that, there’re a lot of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to have any programming abilities. As there’re a couple of PHP versions, you should verify if the very same version that you used whilst creating your site is activated on the web server as well.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Website Hosting
Our website hosting servers support several PHP versions, so your sites will work faultlessly no matter if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We accept the fact that an old site doesn’t invariably equal an insecure one as you may have carried out a lot of mods to its code. That’s why we support PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and you can pick which version will be active for your shared web hosting account. The version can be changed with only one single click through your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will take effect instantaneously. If you want to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even an option to use a different version of PHP for each of your domains at the same time.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Even in case your websites were built with an older PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support different versions running at the same time on our semi-dedicated servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with no more than one click via our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Besides the latest PHP 5.4 and PHP 5.5, we also offer 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4, which has already been dropped by most hosting providers, but we maintain that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a website that took years to build, as older script language syntax doesn’t always suggest security breaches. Just the opposite, a rightly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than an improperly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we’ll also offer you the possibility to set a different version of PHP for each individual site within your account.
