PHP, which is an initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most widely used open-source server-side scripting languages available out there. Any website or Internet application built on PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language absolutely universal and it’s not really a huge surprise that there are a couple of million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it enables you to develop an interactive website with a multitude of different features. A PHP-based community web portal, for example, will serve different content to each visitor despite the fact that the page URL will remain the same. By contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the page content itself can be updated only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst developing a certain website must be activated on the web server in order for the site to run flawlessly.

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

With our cloud plans, you will be able to choose which PHP version will be active for your hosting account, since multiple versions are activated on our servers. With as little as one mouse click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is published in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the older ones. Thus, you will be able to host all the websites that you have developed through the years. In stark contrast to a lot of other companies, we won’t force you to update such sites, because a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it is vulnerable since you may have modified its code to patch safety holes. For the sake of your convenience, you’ll even be able to pick a different PHP version for each individual website that you host in your shared account.

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

We’re strong in our belief that years spent building a website should not be wasted, which implies that in case you purchase a semi-dedicated server from our company, you’ll be able to use any script, regardless of whether it’s new or old. In contrast with a lot of web hosting vendors, we support several different PHP versions on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. Not only will you be able to enable the required version from your Hepsia Control Panel, but you will also have the option to specify a different PHP version for each individual website. The latter can be done merely by putting an .htaccess file within the root folder of the given site. You can change the current version both for a single site and for the account itself and the new settings will be applied in no more than several minutes. With our hosting services, you can be sure that you will never encounter any site incompatibility impediments.
