PHP, which is a metacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most famous open-source server-side programming languages available out there. Any site or web application built using PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language absolutely universal and it’s not very surprising that there are actually a couple of million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it enables you to build a responsive website with a ton of different features. A PHP-based community website, for instance, will serve unique content to each user although the page URL will stay the same. In comparison, HTML sites are static and the page content can be edited only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst developing a specific website must be configured on the web server so that the site can run correctly.

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

We’ve made the decision not to restrict our current and future clients from selecting what PHP version their sites will be using, which implies that if you buy a web hosting package from us, you’ll be able to pick between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account itself, but also for each domain hosted by you. This can be accomplished with just one single click of the mouse through our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all web hosting accounts are administered, so you will not have to possess any technical or programming expertise. You’ll be able to host sites based on both old and new PHP scripts without having to overcome any obstructions, so if you want to abandon your present web hosting supplier and move over to us, you can rest assured that all the sites that you have created through the years will continue to work impeccably.

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

Our semi-dedicated servers support multiple PHP versions, which implies that you will be able to use all the web-based applications that you have built throughout the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with each single semi-dedicated account, will allow you to activate the version that you need with one click of the mouse. You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you would like to host multiple sites under the same account and they have various requirements connected with the hosting platform, you’ll be able to choose a different version for each of them no matter which version has been selected for the account itself. This is accomplishable thanks to our custom cloud platform, which allows us to run several PHP versions simultaneously. In contrast, the vast majority of web hosting providers usually support one, in very rare cases – two versions.
