PHP, which is a recursive abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most popular web programming languages available out there. Any site or application built on PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is installed, which makes the language truly universal and it’s not a surprise that there are actually a few million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it permits you to develop a dynamic site with loads of different options. A PHP-based community website, for example, will display different content to each visitor although the page URL will remain the same. By contrast, HTML sites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst building a particular website must be configured on the server in order for the site to behave correctly.

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

With our Linux shared packages, you’ll be able to choose which version of PHP will be active for your account, since we offer support for different versions. With just one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is released in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the older ones. Thus, you will be able to host all the websites that you’ve created through the years. In contrast to many other hosting suppliers, we won’t force you to update such sites, as a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it is insecure as you may have performed modifications to its code to plug safety loopholes. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to pick a different PHP version for each single site that you host in your shared account.

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 goes to say that you’ll be able to run all the web-based applications that you’ve created throughout the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with every single account, will allow you to activate the needed version with a single click. You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you’d like to host multiple websites in the exact same account and they have distinctive requirements in regards to the web hosting platform, you’ll be able to choose a different version for each of them irrespective of which version has been enabled for the account as a whole. This is accomplishable owing to our custom-built cloud hosting platform, which allows us to run multiple PHP versions at the same time. In contrast, the vast majority of web hosting companies normally support one, in exceptionally rare cases – two versions.
