PHP, which is an acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most commonly used imperative programming languages that are available out there. Any website or Internet application built using PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language truly universal and it isn’t unusual that there are actually several million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it allows you to create an interactive site with a multitude of different features. A PHP-based community portal, for example, will serve unique content to each user irrespective of the fact that the URL will stay the same. In contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the content on the pages can be updated 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 present on the server in order for the site to run properly.

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

With our cloud plans, you will be able to select which version of PHP will be enabled for your account, since we support several versions. With only one mouse click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is unveiled in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you have developed over the years. In stark contrast to lots of other hosting providers, we will not compel you to update such sites, because a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it is insecure as you may have carried out modifications to its code to plug security loopholes. For the sake of your convenience, you’ll even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each site hosted in your shared web hosting account.

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

Our semi-dedicated plans support multiple PHP versions, which implies that you will be able to run all the web apps that you’ve built over the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each single account, will enable you to set the needed version with one click. You can choose between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. If you would like to host multiple websites under the very same account and they have distinct requirements relative to the web hosting environment, you’ll be able to choose a different PHP version for each of them regardless of which version is selected for the account itself. That’s possible owing to our custom-created cloud hosting platform, which allows us to run several PHP versions concurrently. In contrast, the great majority of hosting suppliers usually offer one, in very rare cases – two versions.
