PHP, which is an abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most commonly used general-purpose server-side programming languages available out there. Any website or web-based app built using PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is installed, which renders the language truly universal and it is little surprise that there are a few million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites hosted on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it allows you to build an interactive website with plenty of different features. A PHP-based community portal, for example, will display unique content to each visitor even though the page URL will stay unchanged. By contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the page content can be edited only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used while setting up a given website must be available on the server in order for the site to run flawlessly.

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

In case you buy a cloud web hosting package from our company, you will never have to ponder if your websites are compatible with the hosting environment, since we support different PHP versions for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one click and if you need to change the version, the new settings will take effect right away. Thus, several years of work on websites created with an older PHP version won’t be wasted. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different PHP version for each domain name hosted in your account, so you can run newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting companies on the marketplace support one, sometimes two PHP versions. In contrast with them, we strongly deem that you should be the one to pick the version that your own sites will be using.

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

Our semi-dedicated hosting plans support multiple versions of PHP, which means that you will be able to use all the Internet apps that you’ve set up over the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated server account, will permit you to enable the version that you need with one click of the mouse. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. If you want to host multiple sites in one single account and they have distinct requirements referring to the web hosting environment, you’ll be able to choose a different version for each one of them irrespective of which version is enabled for the account as a whole. This is accomplishable owing to our custom-created cloud platform, which permits us to run multiple PHP versions all at the same time. In contrast, the majority of hosting vendors normally support one, maximum two versions.
