PHP is among the most widely used server-side scripting languages. It is rather popular because it’s free software, which you can use to create responsive sites such as social networking websites, online shops or online teaching portals rather than static HTML sites. A PHP module must be activated on the web server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its code can be ‘translated’. Since there aren’t any license fees for this kind of module and the language itself offers innumerable options for the web apps that you create, there are 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites. What’s more, there are many PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to possess any coding experience. As there are several versions of PHP, you need to confirm if the exact same version that you used whilst creating your site is present on the server as well.

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

In case you buy a shared website hosting package from us, you won’t ever have to speculate as to whether or not your websites are compatible with the hosting environment, as several PHP versions are installed on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one single mouse click and if you want to change the version, the update will be applied instantaneously. In this way, years of work on websites built with an older version will not go down the tube. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can use older and newer scripts at the same time. Most hosting providers on the market offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. In stark contrast to them, we strongly trust that you should be the one to choose the version that your own sites will use.

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

Our semi-dedicated servers support multiple versions of PHP, which means that you will be able to run all the web apps that you’ve developed throughout the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with every semi-dedicated account, will enable you to enable the required version with just one mouse click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. If you want to host multiple sites under one single account and they have distinct requirements with regards to the web hosting environment, you’ll 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. That’s accomplishable owing to our custom-built cloud hosting platform, which allows us to run several PHP versions at once. By contrast, most web hosting vendors normally offer one, maximum two versions.
