PHP is one of the most widely used general-purpose web programming languages. It is very popular as it’s free software, which can be used to create interactive websites like community portals, online shops or e-teaching portals rather than static HTML sites. A PHP module must be activated on the server where a PHP website is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘deciphered’. Because there are no license charges for such a module and the language provides innumerable possibilities for the web applications that you set up, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP websites. Additionally, there are loads of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to possess any coding know-how. Given the fact that there are a couple of versions of PHP, you should ensure that the same version that you used while creating your website is activated on the server too.

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

Our web hosting servers support different PHP versions, which means that your sites will work without any problems no matter if your scripts are outdated. We know that an old website does not always equal a vulnerable one as you may have implemented a lot of source code modifications. That is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can pick which version will be enabled for your account. You can change the version with only one single mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will take effect momentarily. In case you would like to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each domain name of yours at the same time.

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

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages support multiple PHP versions, which implies that you will be able to use all the web applications that you’ve built over the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated account, will allow you to activate the needed version with only one click of the mouse. You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. If you want to host multiple websites under the same account and they have diverse requirements connected with the web hosting platform, you will be able to specify a different PHP version for each one of them regardless of which version has been enabled for the account itself. That’s achievable thanks to our in-house developed cloud hosting platform, which permits us to run several versions of PHP all at once. In stark comparison, the vast majority of web hosting vendors typically offer one, in rare cases – two versions.
