PHP, which is a backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most widely used reflective programming languages that are available out there. Any site or web-based app written in PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language really universal and it is hardly surprising that there are actually several million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it allows you to set up a responsive website with an abundance of options. A PHP-based social networking site, for example, will display different content to each visitor regardless of the fact that the page URL will remain unchanged. By contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the one that was used while building a given website must be available on the server in order for the site to run flawlessly.

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

With our Linux shared web hosting packages, you’ll be able to select the version of PHP that will be active for your shared account, as we support several versions. With just one click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is introduced in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older ones. Thus, you will be able to host all the sites that you’ve developed through the years. In stark contrast to lots of other web hosting vendors, we won’t force you to update such websites, as a script may be out of date, but this does not automatically mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have tweaked its code to fill security holes. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to set a different PHP version for each individual website that you host in your hosting account.

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

It is our unremitting belief that several years spent setting up a website should not go down the drain, which implies that in case you buy a semi-dedicated server from our company, you will be able to run any script, regardless of whether it’s new or old. In stark contrast to lots of hosting vendors, we support several different PHP versions on our ground-breaking cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. Not only will you be able to activate the required version through your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the option to specify a different version for each individual website. This can be done simply by inserting an .htaccess file in the root directory of the given site. You can change the current version both for a single website and for the whole account and the change will take effect in only a couple of minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be certain that you will never run into any website compatibility complications.
