PHP, which is a bacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most popular general-purpose scripting languages out there. Any site or application built using PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language really universal and it isn’t really a huge surprise that there are actually several million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it enables you to develop a dynamic site with an abundance of features. A PHP-based social networking website, for example, will serve different web content to each user regardless of the fact that the page URL won’t change. On the other hand, HTML-based sites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst building a particular website must be set up on the server in order for the site to work flawlessly.

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

With our cloud hosting, you’ll be able to choose the version of PHP that will be active for your web hosting account, as different versions are supported on our servers. With just one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is unveiled in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the older versions. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you’ve created through the years. Unlike lots of other hosting providers, we won’t compel you to update such sites, because a script may be out of date, but this does not necessarily mean that it’s insecure since you may have done modifications to its source code to fill safety holes. For the sake of your convenience, you’ll even be able to specify a different version of PHP for each individual website hosted in your shared account.

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

Our semi-dedicated hosting support multiple PHP versions, which goes to say that you will be able to use all the web-based applications that you’ve developed through the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with every single semi-dedicated account, will allow you to set the required version with a single click of the mouse. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you wish to host multiple websites under the same account and they have diverse requirements with regards to the web hosting platform, you will be able to pick a different PHP version for each of them regardless of which version is selected for the account itself. That’s achievable owing to our in-house built cloud web hosting platform, which permits us to run multiple PHP versions simultaneously. In stark contrast, the vast majority of hosting suppliers typically offer one, in rare cases – two versions.
