PHP, which is a meta-acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most popular open-source scripting languages out there. Any site or application created using PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language really universal and it’s not a huge surprise that there are actually several million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it enables you to set up an interactive website with a vast number of features. A PHP-based community portal, for example, will serve unique content to each visitor despite the fact that the URL will be the same. In comparison, HTML websites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst building a specific website must be set up 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 hosting plans, you will be able to pick which version of PHP will be active for your hosting account, as multiple versions are installed on our servers. With only one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is released in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the earlier versions. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you’ve created throughout the years. In stark contrast to a lot of other hosting companies, we won’t force you to update such websites, because a script may be out of date, but this does not automatically mean that it is vulnerable as you may have implemented modifications to its source code to plug security holes. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to select a different version of PHP for each single site that you host in your hosting account.

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

Our semi-dedicated hosting plans support multiple PHP versions, which means that you’ll be able to use all the Internet applications that you’ve developed throughout the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated account, will permit you to activate the needed version with only one click. You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. If you want to host multiple sites in one and the same account and they have diverse requirements with reference to the web hosting environment, you will be able to set a different PHP version for each and every one of them irrespective of which version has been enabled for the account itself. This is accomplishable owing to our in-house built cloud web hosting platform, which permits us to run several versions of PHP all at once. In stark comparison, the majority of hosting providers typically offer one, in very rare cases – two versions.
