PHP is among the most commonly used open-source scripting languages. It is exceptionally popular since it’s free software, which you can use to create interactive websites like social networking websites, online shopping portals or school websites as opposed to static HTML sites. A PHP module must be activated on the server where a PHP site is hosted so that its source code can be interpreted. Since there aren’t any license taxes for such a module and the language offers unlimited options for the web-based apps that you create, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites. Plus, there are a lot of PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to possess any coding skills. As there are several PHP versions, you ought to verify whether the same exact version that you used while creating your website is present on the server as well.

The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with just one single click and if you wish to change the current version, the update will be applied right away. Thus, years of work on sites created with an older version won’t be in vain. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which implies that you can run newer and older scripts at the same time.

In stark contrast to them, we are convinced that you should be the one to select the version that your very own sites will be using.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you’ve got a website built using an earlier version of PHP and you’ve committed time and energy into developing it, fixing security breaches and posting page content, you will need a hosting service that can support it, as the vast majority of hosting companies nowadays offer support only for the most recently launched PHP version and remove the earlier ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to permit you to select the exact version that your very own sites need. Our semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which goes to say that you will be able to use both older and newer scripts without losing any custom settings or wasting time and energy attempting to make your websites compatible with the web hosting environment. You can change the current version via the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will apply to the whole semi-dedicated account, but you will also have the ability to set a different version of PHP for each single website hosted in your account by means of an .htaccess config file.
