PHP, which is a meta-acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most commonly used open-source scripting languages out there. Any site or web app built on PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language absolutely universal and it is small wonder that there are several million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it allows you to set up a dynamic website with many options. A PHP-based community site, for instance, will display unique web content to each user despite the fact that the URL will remain unchanged. In comparison, HTML websites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while developing a certain website must be available on the server in order for the site to work faultlessly.

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

Our shared hosting servers support several PHP versions, which implies that your sites will work properly even if your PHP scripts are out of date. We know that an old website does not always suggest a vulnerable one as you may have implemented lots of modifications to its source code. That’s the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can pick which version will be active for your shared hosting account. You can change the version with only one single click of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will be applied immediately. If you wish to run both newer and older scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domains simultaneously.

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

Our semi-dedicated servers support multiple versions of PHP, which goes to say that you will be able to run all the Internet applications that you have set up through the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with every semi-dedicated account, will allow you to enable the version that you need with one single click. You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. If you’d like to host multiple websites under the same account and they have various requirements with respect to the hosting platform, you will be able to specify a different version for each and every one of them regardless of which version has been enabled for the account itself. This is accomplishable owing to our in-house developed cloud hosting platform, which allows us to run different versions of PHP all at the same time. By contrast, most web hosts normally offer one, in exceptionally rare cases – two versions.
