PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support
Discover more about PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, why it’s good to have them all and how to promptly switch in between several PHP versions.
PHP is one of the most commonly used object-oriented programming languages. It’s extremely popular because it’s free software, which you can use to build responsive websites such as community websites, online shops or online learning portals rather than static HTML-based sites. A PHP module should be activated on the server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘decrypted’. As there aren’t any license taxes for this type of module and the language offers limitless options for the web-based applications that you create, there are 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites. Additionally, there’re an immense number of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to possess any coding knowledge. Given the fact that there’re a number of versions of PHP, you must verify that the same exact version that you used whilst developing your site is activated on the server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Website Hosting
With our Linux shared website hosting packages
, you will be able to pick the PHP version that will be enabled for your shared account, since we support several versions. With as little as one mouse click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is launched in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the earlier versions. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you have developed over the years. In stark contrast to many other web hosting vendors, we won’t force you to update such websites, because a script may be out of date, but this does not necessarily mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have carried out modifications to its source code to repair safety gaps. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each website hosted in your account.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We are firm in our opinion that several years spent developing a site should not go down the drain, which goes to say that if you get a semi-dedicated server
from us, you will be able to use any script, no matter if it’s old or new.

Not only will you be able to activate the required version through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you will also have the opportunity to choose a different version for each single website. The latter can be accomplished merely by inserting an .htaccess file into the given site’s root directory. You can change the current version not only for a single site, but also for the whole account and the change will take effect in just a few minutes. With our hosting services, you can be certain that you will never confront any website compatibility impediments.
