PHP is among the most widely used open-source server-side programming languages. It’s very popular as it’s free software, which can be used to develop responsive websites such as community web portals, e-commerce portals or e-teaching websites as opposed to static HTML-based sites. A PHP module should be available on the server where a PHP website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘deciphered’. Since there are no license charges for this sort of module and the language itself provides incalculable possibilities for the apps that you build, there are 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites. On top of that, there’re a multitude of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to have any coding expertise. Given the fact that there are a number of versions of PHP, you need to make sure that the exact same version that you used whilst creating your site is available on the web server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which implies that your websites will run flawlessly even if your scripts are outdated. We know that an old website doesn’t necessarily suggest a vulnerable one as you may have done plenty of modifications to its source code. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can select which version will be enabled for your web hosting account. You can change the version with only one mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will be applied immediately. If you wish to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each of your domains simultaneously.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated servers support multiple PHP versions, which means that you will be able to use all the apps that you’ve created through the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated server account, will allow you to activate the version that you need with one single click of the mouse. You can choose between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you want to host multiple sites in the very same account and they have different requirements in regard to the web hosting environment, you’ll be able to specify a different PHP version for each and every one of them irrespective of which version is enabled for the account as a whole. This is achievable thanks to our custom-developed cloud platform, which allows us to run several versions of PHP concurrently. In stark contrast, the vast majority of web hosts typically offer one, rarely two versions.
