PHP, which is a recursive backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous multi-paradigm programming languages available out there. Any website or Internet application created in PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which renders the language absolutely universal and it’s not surprising that there are actually several million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it enables you to create an interactive website with a lot of options. A PHP-based community site, for example, will show different content to each visitor in spite of the fact that the page URL will be the same. In contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Like any other software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used whilst setting up a specific website must be installed on the web server in order for the site to run faultlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting servers support several versions of PHP, so your websites will run properly even if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We acknowledge the fact that an old website does not inevitably equal a vulnerable one as you may have implemented a lot of code mods. That’s the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can pick which one will be enabled for your shared hosting account. You can change the version with only one single click of the mouse via your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will be applied instantaneously. In case you want to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even an option to use a different PHP version for each domain name of yours at the same time.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting support multiple versions of PHP, which goes to say that you will be able to use all the web-based applications that you have developed over the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with every single semi-dedicated account, will permit you to activate the version that you need with one single click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. If you want to host multiple websites under one and the very same account and they have special requirements with regards to the hosting environment, you’ll be able to choose a different version for each one of them no matter which version has been selected for the account as a whole. This is achievable thanks to our custom-developed cloud web hosting platform, which allows us to run multiple versions of PHP simultaneously. In stark contrast, the great majority of web hosting vendors usually offer one, occasionally two versions.
