PHP is amongst the most commonly used general-purpose programming languages. It’s highly popular since it’s free software, which you can use to set up responsive websites such as community portals, e-stores or online teaching sites rather than static HTML-based sites. A PHP module should be available on the web server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its code can be ‘decoded’. As there aren’t any license charges for such a module and the language offers incalculable possibilities for the web apps that you build, there are 100s of millions of PHP websites. What is more, there are heaps of PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without having to possess any coding skills. Since there’re a handful of PHP versions, you must confirm whether the same version that you used while developing your website is available on the web server as well.

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

With our Linux cloud hosting services, you’ll be able to select the PHP version that will be enabled for your web hosting account, as different versions are activated on our servers. With just one click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is published in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older ones. In this way, you will be able to host all the sites that you have built throughout the years. Unlike a lot of other web hosts, we won’t force you to update such sites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s insecure since you may have done modifications to its source code to fix security holes. For your convenience’s sake, 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 versions of PHP, so you’ll be able to use all the Internet apps that you’ve created through the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each account, will permit you to set the required version with one click of the mouse. You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you wish to host multiple websites in the very same account and they have distinct requirements in relation to the hosting platform, you will be able to set a different version for each of them regardless of which version is selected for the account itself. That’s accomplishable thanks to our custom-built cloud web hosting platform, which allows us to run different PHP versions all at the same time. By contrast, the great majority of web hosting providers normally support one, in exceptionally rare cases – two versions.
