PHP is amongst the most commonly used open-source server-side programming languages. It’s rather popular because it is free software, which can be used to create responsive websites such as community web portals, Internet shops or e-teaching portals as opposed to static HTML-based sites. A PHP module should be present on the server where a PHP website is hosted so that its source code can be interpreted. Because there are no license fees for this sort of module and the language itself provides countless possibilities for the Internet apps that you build, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites. What’s more, there are lots of PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to possess any coding capabilities. Given the fact that there’re a couple of PHP versions, you have to confirm that the very same version that you used whilst developing your site is activated on the web server as well.

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

With our Linux cloud website hosting, you’ll be able to select the PHP version that will be active for your shared account, as we support several versions. With just one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is unveiled in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you have built throughout the years. In contrast with many other hosting vendors, we won’t force you to update such sites, because a script may be out of date, but this does not necessarily mean that it’s insecure as you may have modified its code to prevent safety holes. For the sake of your convenience, you’ll even be able to pick a different PHP version for each single site hosted in your shared web hosting account.

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

If you have a site built using an older PHP version and you have funneled time and effort into setting it up, repairing safety breaches and entering web page content, you will need to find a web hosting service that can support it, as the vast majority of hosting vendors these days offer only the most recently introduced version of PHP and remove the older versions. We, however, have decided to let you pick the exact version that your own websites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which suggests that you’ll be able to run both newer and older scripts without losing any custom tweaks or misspending time and efforts struggling to make your sites compatible with the hosting platform. The current version can be changed through the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will affect the whole account, but you will also be able to choose a different version for each individual site that you host in your account by means of an .htaccess config file.
