PHP, which is a recursive initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most widely used coding languages that are available out there. Any website or web application based on PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language absolutely universal and it is not a surprise that there are actually a few million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it permits you to develop a responsive website with a plethora of different features. A PHP-based social network, for instance, will show unique web content to each user although the URL will stay the same. In contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst building a particular website must be set up on the web server in order for the site to behave flawlessly.

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

With our Linux cloud hosting plans, you’ll be able to pick the version of PHP that will be enabled for your shared web hosting account, since multiple versions are installed on our servers. With only one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is launched in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the previous versions. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you have set up throughout the years. In stark contrast to many other web hosting vendors, we will not compel you to update such sites, as a script may be out of date, but this does not necessarily mean that it’s vulnerable since you may have implemented modifications to its code to patch safety breaches. For your convenience’s sake, you will even be able to set a different PHP version for each website hosted in your account.

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

It’s our unvarying conviction that several years spent setting up a site shouldn’t go down the tubes, 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 hosting companies, we support a number of different versions of PHP on our ground-breaking cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only have the ability to enable the required version via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you’ll also have the possibility to specify a different version for each single website. This can be done simply by putting an .htaccess file in the given site’s root folder. You can change the current version both for a single site and for the account itself and the change will take effect in less than a few minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be certain that you won’t ever stumble upon any website incompatibility hindrances.
