PHP, which is a recursive backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most popular open-source web programming languages out there. Any site or application built on PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is installed, which renders the language absolutely universal and it is not really all that surprising that there are a few million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites hosted on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it permits you to develop a responsive website with numerous different features. A PHP-based community web portal, for instance, will display unique content to each visitor although the URL will remain the same. In comparison, HTML sites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used whilst creating a specific website must be present on the web server in order for the site to work properly.

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

Our web hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which implies that your sites will run correctly even if your PHP scripts are outdated. We accept the fact that an old website does not inevitably equal a vulnerable one as you may have performed a lot of code mods. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can decide which version will be enabled for your hosting account. The version can be changed with a single mouse click through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will take effect immediately. If you wish to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even an option to use a different version of PHP for each of your domains simultaneously.

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

Our semi-dedicated services support multiple PHP versions, which suggests that you’ll be able to use all the Internet apps that you’ve created through the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each semi-dedicated server account, will permit you to set the needed version with just one click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. If you wish to host multiple sites in a single account and they have diverse requirements in regards to the hosting platform, you’ll be able to choose a different PHP version for each one of them no matter which version has been selected for the account itself. That’s possible owing to our custom cloud web hosting platform, which allows us to run multiple versions of PHP concurrently. By comparison, the majority of web hosting providers normally offer one, occasionally two versions.
