PHP, which is an initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most widely used dynamic programming languages out there. Any site or Internet application based on PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is activated, which makes the language truly universal and it is not at all unusual that there are a couple of million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it allows you to build a dynamic serving website with a ton of options. A PHP-based community portal, for example, will display different web content to each visitor in spite of the fact that the URL will not change. In contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used while creating a specific website must be available on the server in order for the site to work faultlessly.

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

Our website hosting servers support several PHP versions, which goes to say that your sites will work correctly no matter if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We know that an old website doesn’t necessarily imply an insecure one as you may have implemented a lot of mods to its source code. That is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can decide which one will be active for your web hosting account. The version can be changed with one mouse click through your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will take effect instantaneously. In case you want to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even an option to use a different PHP version for each domain of yours simultaneously.

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

It’s our steadfast belief that several years spent building a site should not be lost, which suggests that in case you get a semi-dedicated server from our company, you’ll be able to run any script, regardless of whether it is old or new. In stark contrast with many hosting suppliers, we support a number of different PHP versions on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. Not only will you have the ability to enable the version that you need through your Hepsia Control Panel, but you will also have the possibility to choose a different version for each single website. This can be accomplished simply by placing an .htaccess file into the given site’s root folder. You can change the version not only for a single website, but also for the whole account and the update will take effect in no more than a few minutes. With our hosting services, you can be certain that you won’t ever have any site compatibility issues.
