PHP is amongst the most widely used imperative programming languages. It’s exceptionally popular since it’s free software, which can be used to build responsive websites such as community web portals, e-commerce portals or online learning sites rather than static HTML-based sites. A PHP module must be enabled on the web server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘deciphered’. Because there are no license taxes for this kind of module and the language itself provides infinite options for the apps that you set up, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites. Plus, there’re a huge number of PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to possess any programming expertise. Considering the fact that there are a number of versions of PHP, you need to check if the same exact version that you used while developing your site is available on the server as well.

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

Our hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which goes to say that your websites will work correctly even if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We realize that an old site does not necessarily mean a vulnerable one as you may have implemented a lot of code modifications. This is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can select which one will be enabled for your shared hosting account. The version can be changed with only one single mouse click in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will be applied immediately. In case you want to run both older and newer scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domain names simultaneously.

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

Our semi-dedicated packages support multiple PHP versions, which goes to say that you’ll be able to use all the web-based applications that you’ve built throughout the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with every single semi-dedicated account, will allow you to activate the required version with a single click. You can choose between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you wish to host multiple websites under the very same account and they have diverse requirements with respect to the web hosting environment, you’ll be able to specify a different PHP version for each one of them no matter which version has been selected for the account as a whole. This is achievable owing to our in-house created cloud hosting platform, which allows us to run several versions of PHP concurrently. In comparison, the majority of web hosts typically offer one, in rare cases – two versions.
