PHP, which is an abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most commonly used open-source server-side coding languages that are available out there. Any website or Internet app built using PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language absolutely universal and it is not unusual that there are actually several million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it allows you to create a dynamic serving website with an enormous number of options. A PHP-based community website, for instance, will display unique web content to each user regardless of the fact that the page URL will not change. In comparison, HTML websites are static and the page content can be updated only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while setting up a certain website must be present on the server in order for the site to work flawlessly.

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

In case you get a shared hosting package from us, you won’t ever have to speculate over whether or not your websites are compatible with the hosting environment, as multiple versions of PHP are enabled on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with just one single click and if you would like to change the current version, the update will be applied right away. In this way, many years of work on sites built with an older version won’t go down the drain. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can run newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting companies on the marketplace offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. In contrast to them, we hold that you should be the one to pick the version that will be used by your own websites.

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

It is our unswerving conviction that several years spent setting up a site should not be lost, which implies that in case you get a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to use any script, irrespective of whether it’s old or new. In contrast with lots of companies, we support several different versions of PHP on our ground-breaking cloud web hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only be able to enable the version that you need from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you will also have the opportunity to pick a different version for each website. The latter can be done merely by inserting an .htaccess file in the root folder of the given site. You can change the current version both for a single website and for the entire account and the change will be applied in no more than a couple of minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be sure that you won’t ever stumble upon any site compatibility challenges.
