PHP, which is an initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most commonly used interpreted programming languages out there. Any website or Internet application built using PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is activated, which makes the language truly universal and it’s by no means unusual that there are a couple of million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it allows you to develop a responsive site with lots of different features. A PHP-based community site, for instance, will display different content to each visitor even though the page URL will remain the same. In contrast, HTML-based websites are static and the page content can be edited only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst setting up a given website must be set up on the server so that the site can run correctly.

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

With our Linux cloud web hosting packages, you’ll be able to pick the version of PHP that will be enabled for your hosting account, as different versions are installed on our servers. With only one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is published in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous versions. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you’ve developed throughout the years. In stark contrast to many other web hosting providers, we will not force you to update such websites, as a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it is insecure since you may have modified its code to repair security holes. For your convenience, you will even be able to specify a different PHP version for each individual site hosted in your shared web hosting account.

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

It is our unswerving opinion that years spent developing a website should not go down the drain, which suggests that if you buy a semi-dedicated server from our company, you will be able to run any script, be it new or old. In contrast with many web hosting companies, we support several different versions of PHP on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only have the ability to enable the required version via your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the possibility to specify a different PHP version for each website. This can be done merely by putting an .htaccess file inside the root directory of the given site. You can change the version either for a single site or for the whole account and the update will be applied in less than a couple of minutes. With our web hosting services, you can rest assured that you won’t ever run into any site incompatibility impediments.
