PHP, which is an initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most commonly used interpreted programming languages that are available out there. Any website or application built on PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language really universal and it is not very unusual that there are actually several million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP websites hosted on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it permits you to create a dynamic serving website with an abundance of features. A PHP-based social network, for instance, will display unique content to each visitor irrespective of the fact that the page URL will not change. On the other hand, HTML-based websites are static and the page content can be updated only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the version that was used while developing a certain website must be present on the server so that the site can run correctly.

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

With our Linux shared hosting packages, you will be able to choose the version of PHP that will be enabled for your web hosting account, as we offer support for different versions. With as little as one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is launched in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the previous ones. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you’ve developed through the years. Unlike a lot of other hosting vendors, we won’t force you to update such sites, because a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have performed modifications to its code to prevent security breaches. For the sake of your convenience, you’ll even be able to pick a different PHP version for each website hosted in your hosting account.

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

Our Linux semi-dedicated packages support multiple versions of PHP, which goes to say that you will be able to run all the web-based apps that you have set up over the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with every single semi-dedicated server account, will allow you to set the version that you need with just one click of the mouse. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you wish to host multiple sites under one and the same account and they have various requirements associated with the web hosting platform, you will be able to pick a different PHP version for each and every one of them regardless of which version has been selected for the account as a whole. This is accomplishable owing to our in-house developed cloud web hosting platform, which allows us to run multiple PHP versions concurrently. In stark contrast, the vast majority of hosting suppliers normally offer one, in extremely rare cases – two versions.
