PHP, which is an abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most commonly used open-source server-side coding languages that are available out there. Any site or application created using PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is activated, which makes the language truly universal and it is by no means surprising that there are a few million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it enables you to set up a dynamic serving website with a lot of different features. A PHP-based social networking website, for instance, will display unique content to each user despite the fact that the URL will stay the same. In comparison, HTML-based websites are static and the content on the pages can be updated only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while setting up a particular website must be configured on the web server in order for the site to run faultlessly.

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

With our website hosting, you will be able to select which PHP version will be active for your web hosting account, as different versions are enabled on our servers. With just one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is published in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the earlier versions. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you’ve set up over the years. In stark contrast to many other hosting providers, we won’t force you to update such sites, as a script may be outdated, but this does not mean that it’s vulnerable since you may have tweaked its source code to prevent safety breaches. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to set a different PHP version for each single site that you host in your shared account.

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

We are steadfast in our opinion that years spent building a site shouldn’t go down the tube, which implies that if you purchase a semi-dedicated server from our company, you will be able to run any script, be it new or old. In stark contrast with lots of companies, we support several different PHP versions on our leading-edge cloud platform – 4, 5 and 7. Not only will you be able to enable the needed version through your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the opportunity to pick a different PHP version for each individual website. The latter can be done merely by placing an .htaccess file within the root directory of the given site. You can change the version both for a single site and for the entire account and the change will be applied in no more than several minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be sure that you won’t ever bump into any site incompatibility hindrances.
