PHP, which is a recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most commonly used open-source server-side scripting languages that are available out there. Any website or web app created in PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language absolutely universal and it is by no means unusual that there are several million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it enables you to build a responsive website with tons of different features. A PHP-based community portal, for instance, will show unique web content to each visitor irrespective of the fact that the URL won’t change. In contrast, HTML sites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst setting up a specific website must be enabled on the server in order for the site to work correctly.

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

If you get a hosting package from us, you won’t ever have to wonder whether your websites are compatible with the web hosting environment, since multiple versions of PHP are enabled on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one mouse click and if you wish to change the current version, the update will take effect instantaneously. Thus, years of work on websites created with an older version won’t go down the tubes. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which implies that you can run newer and older scripts at the same time. Most web hosting companies on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two versions of PHP. Unlike them, we hold that you should be the one to choose the version that will be used by your very own sites.

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

In case you’ve got a website built on an earlier PHP version and you’ve funneled time and effort into setting it up, plugging safety holes and publishing web page content, you’ll need to find a hosting service that can support it, as nearly all hosting suppliers nowadays offer support only for the most recent PHP version and drop the previous ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to permit you to choose the exact version that your own sites require. Our semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which means that you will be able to use both newer and older scripts without losing any manual settings or misspending time and efforts trying to make your websites compatible with the web hosting environment. You can change the current version via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will apply to the whole semi-dedicated account, but you’ll also have the ability to select a different version for each individual website hosted in your account by means of an .htaccess configuration file.
