PHP, which is a meta-acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most widely used interpreted programming languages that are available out there. Any website or Internet app created with PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language truly universal and it isn’t all that unusual that there are a couple of million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it allows you to build a dynamic website with a plethora of options. A PHP-based community site, for example, will serve different web content to each user despite the fact that the page URL will stay unchanged. By contrast, HTML-based websites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while developing a particular website must be present on the server in order for the site to behave faultlessly.

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

With our Linux shared hosting, you will be able to choose the PHP version that will be enabled for your account, as different versions are enabled on our servers. With as little as one click of the mouse, you’ll 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 Control Panel without removing the previous versions. In this way, you will be able to host all the websites that you’ve developed throughout the years. Unlike a lot of other web hosting vendors, we will not compel you to update such websites, because a script may be out of date, but this does not necessarily mean that it’s insecure since you may have done modifications to its source code to repair security loopholes. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to select a different PHP version for each website hosted in your shared hosting account.

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

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support multiple PHP versions, which goes to say that you’ll be able to use all the Internet apps that you’ve developed over the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated account, will allow you to set the version that you need with just one click of the mouse. You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you would like to host multiple sites in one and the same account and they have different requirements toward the hosting platform, you’ll be able to pick a different PHP version for each one of them regardless of which version has been enabled for the account itself. This is possible thanks to our in-house created cloud web hosting platform, which allows us to run multiple versions of PHP concurrently. By contrast, the great majority of web hosting providers typically support one, maximum two versions.
