PHP, which is a recursive initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most commonly used coding languages that are available out there. Any website or Internet app created using PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language absolutely universal and it’s not that surprising that there are actually a few million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it permits you to set up an interactive site with many options. A PHP-based community website, for instance, will show unique content to each user although the page URL will stay unchanged. By contrast, HTML-based websites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while creating a certain website must be present on the web server in order for the site to work flawlessly.

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

Our cloud website hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which goes to say that your sites will work without any problems no matter if your PHP scripts are out of date. We accept the fact that an old website doesn’t invariably mean an insecure one as you may have carried out lots of code modifications. That is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can choose which version will be active for your hosting account. You can change the version with one click within your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied instantaneously. If you want to run both older and newer scripts, there is even an option 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 semi-dedicated services support multiple versions of PHP, which means that you’ll be able to use all the web apps that you’ve developed over the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each semi-dedicated server account, will enable you to enable the required version with one mouse click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you’d like to host multiple sites in one single account and they have various requirements as regards the hosting environment, you’ll be able to choose a different version for each of them irrespective of which version has been selected for the account itself. That’s achievable thanks to our custom-created cloud platform, which permits us to run several versions of PHP at the same time. In stark comparison, the majority of web hosting companies typically offer one, rarely two versions.
