PHP is one of the most widely used general-purpose scripting languages. It’s exceptionally popular because it’s free software, which can be used to set up responsive websites such as social networks, web stores or online learning portals as opposed to static HTML websites. A PHP module must be installed on the server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decrypted’. As there are no license fees for this kind of module and the language provides incalculable possibilities for the apps that you set up, there are hundreds of millions of PHP websites. Plus, there’re an enormous number of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to have any programming knowledge. Since there are a handful of PHP versions, you have to verify that the exact same version that you used whilst setting up your website is activated on the server too.

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

With our shared hosting, you’ll be able to pick which PHP version will be active for your shared account, as several versions are supported on our servers. With only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is launched in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous ones. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you have built through the years. In contrast with a lot of other web hosting companies, we won’t compel you to update such websites, because a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s insecure as you may have implemented modifications to its source code to plug security gaps. For your convenience, you will even be able to specify a different PHP version for each individual website hosted in your shared web hosting account.

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

Our semi-dedicated servers support multiple versions of PHP, which goes to say that you’ll be able to use all the applications that you’ve built over the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each account, will enable you to set the needed version with only one click of the mouse. You can choose between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you want to host multiple sites under one account and they have diverse requirements referring to the web hosting platform, you’ll be able to pick a different version for each one of them irrespective of which version is enabled for the account itself. This is possible thanks to our in-house created cloud web hosting platform, which allows us to run multiple PHP versions all at once. By contrast, the majority of hosting providers normally offer one, sometimes two versions.
