PHP, which is a recursive backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most popular dynamic programming languages that are available out there. Any site or web-based application built using PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is installed, which renders the language truly universal and it isn’t really a surprise that there are actually several million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it permits you to develop a dynamic serving site with loads of features. A PHP-based community web portal, for instance, will display different web content to each user in spite of the fact that the URL will stay unchanged. In comparison, HTML websites are static and the content on the pages can be updated only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst building a particular website must be activated on the server so that the site can run flawlessly.

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

Our hosting servers support different PHP versions, so your websites will work properly even if your scripts are outdated. We know that an old site doesn’t automatically mean a vulnerable one as you may have done lots of code modifications. That is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can decide which one will be enabled for your account. You can change the version with just one single click via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will be applied right away. If you’d like to run both newer and older scripts, there is even an option to use a different version of PHP for each of your domain names at the same time.

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

Our semi-dedicated hosting packages support multiple versions of PHP, which means that you’ll be able to run all the web-based applications that you’ve built throughout the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated server account, will permit you to activate the version that you need with only one click of the mouse. You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. If you want to host multiple sites in one single account and they have distinctive requirements with regard to the hosting platform, you’ll be able to choose a different PHP version for each and every one of them regardless of which version is selected for the account itself. That’s achievable owing to our custom cloud platform, which permits us to run different PHP versions concurrently. In contrast, the majority of web hosting providers usually support one, in extremely rare cases – two versions.
