PHP, which is a bacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most widely used class-based programming languages available out there. Any site or web-based app written in PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language truly universal and it’s not very unusual that there are actually a couple of million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it enables you to develop a dynamic serving site with a lot of features. A PHP-based social network, for example, will display unique web content to each user in spite of the fact that the URL will stay unchanged. By contrast, HTML websites are static and the page content itself can be edited only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used whilst setting up a particular website must be available on the server in order for the site to run properly.

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

Our website hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which implies that your sites will run correctly even if your PHP scripts are out of date. We know that an old website does not automatically imply a vulnerable one as you may have done 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 choose which one will be enabled for your web hosting account. The version can be changed with just one single click through your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied instantaneously. If you’d like to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even an option to use a different version of PHP for each domain of yours at the same time.

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

We unswervingly believe that years spent building a site should not be wasted, which means that in case you buy a semi-dedicated server from us, you’ll be able to run any script, regardless of whether it is new or old. In contrast with lots of hosting vendors, we support several different versions of PHP on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only be able to activate the required version through your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the option to choose a different PHP version for each website. The latter can be done simply by placing an .htaccess file into the given site’s root directory. You can change the current version not only for a single website, but also for the account itself and the new settings will take effect in just a couple of minutes. With our web hosting services, you can rest assured that you won’t ever bump into any website incompatibility complications.
