PHP, which is an initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most commonly used programming languages out there. Any site or Internet app built with PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language truly universal and it’s not at all unusual that there are actually a couple of million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it allows you to set up a dynamic serving site with a large number of options. A PHP-based community website, for example, will show unique content to each user even though the page URL won’t change. On the other hand, HTML sites are static and the page content itself can be edited only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst building a particular website must be present on the web server in order for the site to run flawlessly.

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

Our shared hosting servers support different PHP versions, which suggests that your sites will run without any problems even if your PHP scripts are out of date. We acknowledge the fact that an old site doesn’t always suggest a vulnerable one as you may have done a lot of modifications to its source code. This is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can select which version will be enabled for your account. You can change the version with only one single click of the mouse within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will take effect instantly. In case you’d like to run both newer and older scripts, there is even an option to use a different version of PHP for each of your domain names simultaneously.

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

Our semi-dedicated servers support multiple PHP versions, which means that you will be able to use all the Internet apps that you have created through the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated server account, will permit you to enable the required version with a single click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. If you wish to host multiple sites in the exact same account and they have diverse requirements in regard to the hosting platform, you will be able to choose a different version for each one of them no matter which version is enabled for the account itself. This is accomplishable owing to our in-house developed cloud hosting platform, which permits us to run several PHP versions at once. In comparison, the vast majority of web hosting suppliers usually support one, rarely two versions.
