PHP is one of the most widely used general-purpose server-side programming languages. It’s rather popular because it’s free software, which can be used to set up responsive sites such as social networking sites, e-shops or online teaching sites rather than static HTML-based sites. A PHP module should be installed on the server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘deciphered’. As there are no license charges for this sort of module and the language itself offers innumerable options for the web-based applications that you build, there are hundreds of millions of PHP websites. Furthermore, there’re an enormous number of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to possess any programming abilities. As there are a number of versions of PHP, you should check if the very same version that you used whilst building your site is installed on the web server too.

PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Web Hosting

If you order a cloud web hosting plan from our company, you’ll never have to think about whether or not your websites are compatible with the web hosting environment, as several versions of PHP are installed on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one click and in case you want to change the version, the new settings will be applied instantly. Thus, years of work on websites created with an older version will not go down the tube. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can use older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting providers on the marketplace support one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In contrast with them, we strongly consider that you should be the one to select the version that will be used by your own websites.

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

Our semi-dedicated hosting plans support multiple PHP versions, which goes to say that you’ll be able to run all the Internet applications that you have built through the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with each single semi-dedicated server account, will enable you to activate the version that you need with only one click of the mouse. You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you’d like to host multiple sites in the very same account and they have diverse requirements relative to the web hosting platform, you will be able to set a different PHP version for each one of them regardless of which version has been enabled for the account itself. This is achievable owing to our custom-built cloud platform, which permits us to run several versions of PHP simultaneously. In stark comparison, the vast majority of web hosting suppliers normally support one, in extremely rare cases – two versions.
