PHP, which is a recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most commonly used coding languages available out there. Any site or web-based app based on PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is activated, which renders the language truly universal and it is little wonder that there are actually a couple of million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it allows you to build a responsive site with a lot of different options. A PHP-based community web portal, for instance, will serve unique web content to each visitor although the page URL will stay unchanged. In contrast, HTML sites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst setting up a certain website must be activated on the server in order for the site to behave faultlessly.

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

With our shared web hosting, you will be able to select the PHP version that will be active for your shared account, as multiple versions are activated on our servers. With only one mouse click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is launched in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the earlier versions. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you have built throughout the years. In stark contrast with many other hosting providers, we won’t compel you to update such websites, as a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t mean that it’s vulnerable since you may have tweaked its code to repair security breaches. For your convenience, you will even be able to select 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 semi-dedicated hosting support multiple versions of PHP, which suggests that you will be able to run all the applications that you’ve created throughout the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each single account, will allow you to set the needed version with only one click. You can choose between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. If you’d like to host multiple sites under the same account and they have distinct requirements connected to the hosting environment, you will be able to pick a different PHP version for each and every one of them no matter which version has been selected for the account itself. That’s accomplishable owing to our custom-created cloud hosting platform, which permits us to run multiple PHP versions concurrently. By contrast, most web hosts typically support one, maximum two versions.
