PHP, which stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most famous general-purpose server-side scripting languages out there. Any website or web-based app built on PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is installed, which renders the language really universal and it isn’t very unusual that there are a few million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it enables you to create a dynamic site with lots of different features. A PHP-based social networking website, for instance, will display unique web content to each visitor although the URL will remain unchanged. On the other hand, HTML websites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while setting up a particular website must be activated on the server in order for the site to work properly.

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

Our shared hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which means that your websites will run faultlessly no matter if your PHP scripts are out of date. We acknowledge the fact that an old website doesn’t always equal an insecure one as you may have done plenty of source code modifications. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can select which one will be active for your account. The version can be changed with only one click within your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will take effect straight away. In case you want to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even an option to use a different version of PHP for each domain of yours simultaneously.

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

Our Linux semi-dedicated packages support multiple versions of PHP, which suggests that you will be able to run all the apps that you have developed throughout the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each account, will permit you to activate the version that you need with just one click. You can choose between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you wish to host multiple websites under one and the very same account and they have diverse requirements related to the web hosting environment, you’ll be able to specify a different PHP version for each one of them irrespective of which version has been enabled for the account as a whole. This is accomplishable owing to our custom-developed cloud platform, which allows us to run different versions of PHP simultaneously. By contrast, most web hosting vendors normally support one, occasionally two versions.
