PHP is one of the most widely used open-source server-side programming languages. It’s exceptionally popular since it’s free software, which can be used to set up responsive sites such as community web portals, e-commerce portals or e-learning sites as opposed to static HTML-based sites. A PHP module should be present on the server where a PHP site is hosted so that its source code can be read. As there aren’t any license taxes for such a module and the language provides infinite possibilities for the Internet apps that you develop, there are 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites. What is more, there are lots of PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to possess any coding capabilities. Given the fact that there’re several versions of PHP, you need to confirm whether the exact same version that you used while creating your website is available on the server too.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Hosting
With our Linux shared hosting packages, you’ll be able to pick which version of PHP will be active for your web hosting account, since different versions are supported on our servers. With just one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and whenever a new version is launched in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous versions. In this way, you will be able to host all the sites that you have built through the years. In stark contrast with many other web hosting companies, we will not force you to update such websites, as a script may be out of date, but this does not automatically mean that it’s insecure since you may have implemented modifications to its source code to plug security loopholes. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to set a different PHP version for each site hosted in your shared account.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
It’s our unvarying belief that several years spent creating a site shouldn’t be in vain, which means that if you order a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to run any script, irrespective of whether it’s new or old.

You will not only have the ability to enable the version that you need from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you will also have the opportunity to pick a different PHP version for each individual website. The latter can be done simply by placing an .htaccess file inside the given site’s root folder. You can change the current version both for a single website and for the entire account and the change will be applied in no more than several minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be certain that you won’t ever encounter any site incompatibility impediments.
