PHP, which is a meta-acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most commonly used general-purpose server-side coding languages available out there. Any site or application built with PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is installed, which makes the language really universal and it isn’t unusual that there are a few million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it enables you to create a dynamic serving website with a vast number of features. A PHP-based community site, for instance, will serve different content to each visitor irrespective of the fact that the URL will stay the same. On the other hand, HTML sites are static and the page content can be updated only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while building a given 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 Web Hosting

Our web hosting servers support several PHP versions, so your sites will work correctly even if your PHP scripts are out of date. We accept the fact that an old site does not necessarily imply a vulnerable one as you may have done lots of code modifications. That is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can choose which version will be enabled for your web hosting account. You can change the version with one click within your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied instantaneously. If you would like to run both older and newer scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each of your domain names at the same time.

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

Our semi-dedicated hosting plans support multiple PHP versions, which suggests that you’ll be able to run all the applications that you’ve set up over the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with every single semi-dedicated server account, will allow you to enable the required version with one single click of the mouse. You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. If you want to host multiple websites in one and the same account and they have distinctive requirements in connection to the web hosting environment, you’ll be able to choose a different version for each and every one of them regardless of which version has been selected for the account itself. This is accomplishable owing to our in-house created cloud platform, which allows us to run different versions of PHP all at the same time. By contrast, the vast majority of hosting providers typically offer one, maximum two versions.
