PHP, which is a backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most popular curly-brace programming languages that are available out there. Any website or Internet app written in PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language absolutely universal and it isn’t surprising that there are actually several million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it permits you to set up a responsive site with tons of options. A PHP-based community web portal, for example, will show different content to each user even though the URL will remain the same. In contrast, HTML-based websites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Like any other software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used while building a specific website must be configured on the server so that the site can run correctly.

PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Hosting

Our hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which goes to say that your sites will run without any problem even if your PHP scripts are outdated. We accept the fact that an old website does not always mean a vulnerable one as you may have done plenty of modifications to its code. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can choose which one will be enabled for your shared web hosting account. You can change the version with only one click through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will take effect momentarily. If you’d like to run both older and newer scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each domain name of yours simultaneously.

PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support multiple PHP versions, which suggests that you’ll be able to use all the applications that you have developed throughout the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with every single semi-dedicated server account, will allow you to activate the needed version with one single mouse click. You can choose between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. If you would like to host multiple sites under one and the same account and they have distinctive requirements with regards to the web hosting environment, you’ll be able to choose a different version for each and every one of them irrespective of which version is selected for the account itself. That’s achievable thanks to our custom-built cloud hosting platform, which permits us to run multiple PHP versions simultaneously. In stark comparison, the vast majority of web hosting suppliers normally offer one, rarely two versions.
