PHP, which is a bacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most popular multi-paradigm programming languages available out there. Any site or application based on PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language truly universal and it isn’t surprising that there are several million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it enables you to build a dynamic site with a lot of options. A PHP-based social network, for example, will serve unique web content to each visitor although the URL will stay unchanged. On the other hand, HTML websites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Like any other software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used while creating a certain website must be installed on the server in order for the site to behave flawlessly.

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

Our cloud hosting servers support several PHP versions, so your websites will work properly no matter if your PHP scripts are out of date. We acknowledge the fact that an old site doesn’t necessarily imply a vulnerable one as you may have performed plenty of modifications to its code. That is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can pick which version will be enabled for your web hosting account. The version can be changed with a single click through your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will be applied immediately. In case you wish to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each domain of yours at the same time.

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

In case you’ve got a website created in an earlier version of PHP and you have dedicated time and efforts towards setting it up, fixing security breaches and inputting page content, you will need to find a hosting service that can support it, since the majority of web hosting suppliers nowadays offer only the most recently launched PHP version and drop the earlier versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to permit you to pick the version that your own sites require. Our semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which goes to say that you’ll be able to run both newer and older scripts without losing any customizations or wasting time and effort trying to make your websites compatible with the hosting platform. The current version can be changed from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will apply to the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you will also be able to specify a different PHP version for each individual site that you host in your account by using an .htaccess config file.
