PHP, which is a recursive backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most popular web development languages available out there. Any site or web application built with PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language absolutely universal and it’s by no means surprising that there are several million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it allows you to set up an interactive site with a plethora of different options. A PHP-based community web portal, for example, will display unique web content to each visitor regardless of the fact that the URL will be the same. On the other hand, HTML-based websites are static and the page content itself can be edited only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst setting up a certain website must be available on the server in order for the site to behave properly.

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

Our hosting servers support different PHP versions, so your websites will work without any problem no matter if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We accept the fact that an old website does not automatically suggest an insecure one as you may have implemented a lot of source code modifications. That is 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. The version can be changed with only one click through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will be applied instantly. If you want to run both older and newer scripts, there is even an option to use a different PHP version for each domain name of yours at the same time.

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

We’re firm in our belief that years spent developing a site shouldn’t go down the tube, which suggests that if you buy a semi-dedicated server from our company, you’ll be able to use any script, no matter if it’s new or old. In contrast with a lot of hosting companies, we support a number of different versions of PHP on our cutting-edge cloud platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only have the ability to activate the needed version from your Hepsia Control Panel, but you will also have the possibility to choose a different PHP version for each website. The latter can be accomplished simply by uploading an .htaccess file to the root directory of the given site. You can change the version both for a single site and for the whole account and the change will take effect in no more than a few minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be certain that you will never run into any site incompatibility issues.
