PHP, which is a recursive abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most commonly used open-source web programming languages out there. Any site or web application based on PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language truly universal and it’s little wonder that there are a few million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it permits you to set up a dynamic serving website with an abundance of options. A PHP-based community website, for example, will serve unique web content to each visitor even though the URL will stay unchanged. In contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the page content itself can be edited only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while creating a specific website must be available on the server so that the site can run correctly.

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

Our 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of PHP, which goes to say that your sites will work without any problems no matter if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We know that an old website doesn’t necessarily mean a vulnerable one as you may have done plenty of mods to its code. This is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can decide which version will be enabled for your account. The version can be changed with one click of the mouse via your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied immediately. If you’d like to run both newer and older scripts, there is even a possibility 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 Servers

We’re of the unswerving opinion that several years spent setting up a website should not go down the drain, which implies that if you buy a semi-dedicated server from us, you’ll be able to run any script, regardless of whether it is old or new. In stark contrast to a lot of providers, we support a number of different PHP versions on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. Not only will you have the ability to activate the needed version from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you’ll also have the possibility to select a different PHP version for each individual website. This can be accomplished simply by inserting an .htaccess file in the given site’s root folder. You can change the version either for a single site or for the whole account and the change will take effect in only several minutes. With our web hosting services, you can rest assured that you will never chance upon any site compatibility obstacles.
