PHP is one of the most commonly used open-source scripting languages. It is rather popular because it is free software, which you can use to create interactive sites like social networking sites, web shops or online teaching websites rather than static HTML-based sites. A PHP module must be available on the server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘translated’. Because there are no license taxes for this type of module and the language offers limitless options for the Internet apps that you build, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites. What is more, there’re an immense number of PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to possess any coding know-how. As there’re a handful of PHP versions, you ought to make sure that the exact same version that you used while setting up your website is enabled on the web server too.

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

If you get a shared hosting package from our company, you won’t ever need to speculate as to whether or not your websites are compatible with the web hosting platform, as we support several PHP versions for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one click and in case you need to change the version, the new settings will take effect immediately. Thus, several years of work on websites built with an older version of PHP won’t go down the tube. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which means that you can run older and newer scripts at the same time. Most web hosting providers on the marketplace support one, sometimes two PHP versions. In contrast with them, we reckon that you should be the one to choose the version that your own websites will be using.

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

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans support multiple versions of PHP, so you’ll be able to use all the Internet apps that you’ve created through the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated account, will permit you to activate the version that you need with a single mouse click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you would like to host multiple websites under a single account and they have diverse requirements in relation to the hosting platform, you’ll be able to pick a different PHP version for each one of them regardless of which version has been selected for the account itself. That’s possible owing to our in-house developed cloud hosting platform, which allows us to run different versions of PHP at once. By contrast, the great majority of hosting companies usually support one, rarely two versions.
