PHP, which is an abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most popular scripting languages that are available out there. Any site or web app built on PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is installed, which makes the language truly universal and it is by no means unusual that there are actually several million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it enables you to develop an interactive website with an abundance of different features. A PHP-based social networking website, for example, will show unique content to each visitor despite the fact that the page URL will remain the same. On the other hand, HTML sites are static and the page content itself can be edited only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst creating a certain website must be set up on the web server so that the site can run correctly.

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

Our shared website hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which means that your websites will work faultlessly even if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We accept the fact that an old site does not inevitably mean a vulnerable one as you may have carried out lots of mods to its source code. That’s the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can select which version will be active for your hosting account. You can change the version with one click inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will be applied momentarily. If you would like to run both older and newer scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each domain name of yours at the same time.

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

We’re unswerving in our conviction that several years spent developing a site shouldn’t be in vain, which suggests that if you buy a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to run any script, irrespective of whether it is old or new. In stark contrast with lots of web hosting companies, we support several different PHP versions on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. Not only will you have the ability to activate the version that you need via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you will also have the option to set a different PHP version for each single website. This can be done merely by placing an .htaccess file into the given site’s root directory. You can change the version both for a single site and for the account itself and the new settings will be applied in just a few minutes. With our hosting services, you can be certain that you will never bump into any website compatibility impediments.
