PHP, which is a meta-acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most popular general-purpose server-side programming languages available out there. Any website or app built on PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is activated, which makes the language absolutely universal and it’s not very unusual that there are actually a couple of million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it permits you to create a dynamic serving site with numerous different features. A PHP-based social network, for example, will display unique content to each visitor even though the page URL will stay unchanged. In contrast, HTML websites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst building a particular website must be enabled on the server in order for the site to behave faultlessly.

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

Our cloud web hosting servers support different PHP versions, so your websites will work correctly no matter if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We acknowledge the fact that an old website does not necessarily imply a vulnerable one as you may have implemented a lot of modifications to its source code. That is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can decide which version will be enabled for your web hosting account. The version can be changed with one single click via your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will take effect straight away. If you want to run both older and newer scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each domain of yours 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 implies that you will be able to use all the web-based applications that you have created through the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated account, will enable you to set the version that you need with a single click of the mouse. You can choose between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you wish to host multiple websites under the very same account and they have different requirements connected with the hosting environment, you will be able to pick a different version for each and every one of them no matter which version has been selected for the account itself. That’s accomplishable thanks to our custom-created cloud platform, which permits us to run different PHP versions concurrently. In comparison, the great majority of hosting vendors typically support one, in very rare cases – two versions.
