PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Hosting
With our Linux shared hosting packages, you will be able to select the PHP version that will be enabled for your shared web hosting account, since several versions are activated on our servers. With only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is introduced in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older ones. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you have set up through the years. In contrast with many other companies, we will not force you to update such sites, because a script may be outdated, but this does not mean that it’s insecure since you may have done modifications to its source code to plug safety holes. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to select a different PHP version for each individual website that you host in your shared hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Even if your websites were created 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 simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be activated for your account with just a click from our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Aside from the newest PHP 7, we also support 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4, which has already been abandoned by the great majority of web hosting vendors, but we maintain that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a website that took several years to develop, as older programming language syntax does not inevitably mean safety vulnerabilities. On the contrary, a rightly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than a negligently maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we’ll also provide you with the opportunity to select a different version for each site within the account.
