PHP, which is a recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most commonly used multi-paradigm programming languages out there. Any website or Internet app created in PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language absolutely universal and it’s small wonder that there are actually several million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites hosted on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it enables you to develop an interactive website with heaps of different options. A PHP-based social networking website, for instance, will serve different content to each visitor although the URL will remain the same. In contrast, HTML sites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst developing a given website must be installed on the web server so that the site can run correctly.

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

With our Linux shared hosting packages, you will be able to choose the version of PHP that will be enabled for your account, as different versions are activated on our servers. With just one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is published in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the previous ones. In this way, you will be able to host all the sites that you have developed through the years. Unlike a lot of other web hosting companies, we will not compel you to update such sites, because a script may be outdated, but this does not automatically mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have carried out modifications to its source code to repair safety breaches. For the sake of your convenience, you’ll even be able to pick a different PHP version for each single website that you host in your shared account.

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

We believe that years spent developing a website shouldn’t go down the drain, which goes to say that in case you buy a semi-dedicated server from our company, you’ll be able to run any script, irrespective of whether it’s new or old. In contrast with many hosting companies, we support several different PHP versions on our advanced cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. Not only will you be able to enable the version that you need from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you will also have the opportunity to set a different PHP version for each single website. This can be accomplished simply by putting an .htaccess file into the root directory of the given site. You can change the current version not only for a single website, but also for the whole account and the new settings will take effect in no more than a couple of minutes. With our web hosting services, you can rest assured that you will never confront any site incompatibility predicaments.
