PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Hosting
Our hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which implies that your websites will work correctly even if your PHP scripts are outdated. We acknowledge the fact that an old website doesn’t inevitably mean a vulnerable one as you may have done plenty of modifications to its source code. This is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can select which one will be active for your account. The version can be changed with only one single mouse click via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will take effect straight away. In case you want to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domain names at the same time.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Even in case your sites were created with an older version of PHP, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support several versions running at the same time on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be activated for your account with just one click of the mouse via our custom Hepsia Control Panel. Besides the most recent PHP 8, we also support 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been dropped by the majority of web hosting vendors, but we consider that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a website that took several years to set up, as older script language syntax doesn’t invariably suggest safety breaches. Just the opposite, a properly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than an incompetently maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we’ll also provide you with the possibility to specify a different version for each individual website within the account.
