PHP, which is a recursive initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous open-source scripting languages available out there. Any site or Internet application built with PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language absolutely universal and it’s not really a surprise that there are a few million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it allows you to set up a responsive website with loads of options. A PHP-based community web portal, for example, will show different content to each user although the page URL will stay the same. By contrast, HTML websites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst building a particular website must be installed on the web server in order for the site to run faultlessly.

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

With our cloud website hosting service, you will be able to pick which version of PHP will be active for your hosting account, since we offer support for multiple versions. With as little as one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is unveiled in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older versions. Thus, you will be able to host all the websites that you have created through the years. In stark contrast to lots of other providers, we won’t compel you to update such sites, because a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s vulnerable since you may have performed modifications to its source code to fill security holes. For your convenience’s sake, you’ll even be able to choose a different PHP version for each individual site hosted in your hosting account.

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

Our semi-dedicated servers support multiple PHP versions, which goes to say that you will be able to run all the applications that you have developed through the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each single semi-dedicated server account, will enable you to set the version that you need with a single click. You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. If you would like to host multiple sites under a single account and they have distinct requirements related to the hosting environment, you’ll be able to specify a different version for each and every one of them regardless of which version has been enabled for the account as a whole. This is possible thanks to our in-house developed cloud web hosting platform, which allows us to run several PHP versions simultaneously. In stark contrast, the majority of hosting suppliers usually support one, rarely two versions.
