PHP, which is a recursive backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous imperative programming languages available out there. Any website or Internet application based on PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language truly universal and it is not a huge surprise that there are a few million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites hosted on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it enables you to create an interactive site with lots of features. A PHP-based social network, for example, will show unique content to each user although the page URL will stay the same. On the other hand, HTML websites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst creating a particular website must be available on the server so that the site can run properly.

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

With our cloud web hosting service, you’ll be able to pick which PHP version will be enabled for your shared hosting account, since several versions are activated on our servers. With only one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is introduced in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the previous ones. In this way, you will be able to host all the sites that you have built through the years. In contrast with lots of other web hosting providers, we will not compel you to update such websites, because a script may be outdated, but this does not mean that it’s insecure as you may have carried out modifications to its source code to patch security breaches. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to specify a different version of PHP for each individual site that you host in your shared web hosting account.

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

We are unswerving in our belief that several years spent developing a website shouldn’t go down the tube, which implies that in case you purchase a semi-dedicated server from our company, you will be able to run any script, regardless of whether it is new or old. In stark contrast with many web hosting providers, we support several different PHP versions on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. Not only will you be able to enable the required version through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you’ll also have the option to set a different version for each single website. The latter can be accomplished merely by putting an .htaccess file into the given site’s root folder. You can change the current version both for a single website and for the whole account and the new settings will take effect in less than a couple of minutes. With our hosting services, you can be certain that you won’t ever have any site compatibility problems.
