PHP, which is an abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous open-source server-side scripting languages out there. Any site or Internet application created in PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language truly universal and it is hardly a surprise that there are a couple of million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it enables you to set up a dynamic website with loads of different options. A PHP-based social networking website, for example, will serve unique web content to each user regardless of the fact that the page URL will remain unchanged. On the other hand, HTML websites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while creating a particular website must be activated on the server in order for the site to run properly.

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

With our cloud web hosting plans, you will be able to choose which PHP version will be enabled for your shared hosting account, as multiple versions are supported on our servers. With as little as one click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is published in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the older versions. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you have developed through the years. In stark contrast with many other web hosting vendors, we will not compel you to update such sites, because a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t mean that it’s insecure as you may have modified its source code to prevent security loopholes. For the sake of your convenience, you’ll even be able to choose a different version of PHP for each single website that you host in your shared web hosting account.

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

We’re of the opinion that years spent setting up a website shouldn’t go down the drain, which means that in case you buy a semi-dedicated server from us, you’ll be able to use any script, be it old or new. In stark contrast to lots of providers, we support several different PHP versions on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only be able to enable the required version from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you will also have the option to set a different version for each individual website. The latter can be done simply by placing an .htaccess file in the given site’s root folder. You can change the current version both for a single site and for the account itself and the update will take effect in no more than a couple of minutes. With our hosting services, you can be certain that you won’t ever confront any website incompatibility difficulties.
