PHP is one of the most widely used general-purpose web programming languages. It is rather popular because it is free software, which you can use to build interactive websites like social networks, online stores or e-learning sites as opposed to static HTML-based websites. A PHP module must be present on the server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘deciphered’. Since there are no license fees for this type of module and the language itself offers endless possibilities for the web-based applications that you set up, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites. What’s more, there are loads of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to have any coding experience. As there’re a few PHP versions, you need to check if the very same version that you used whilst setting up your website is enabled on the server too.

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

With our Linux cloud web hosting, you’ll be able to choose which PHP version will be active for your shared web hosting account, as we offer support for different versions. With only one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is unveiled in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the previous ones. In this way, you will be able to host all the sites that you have created through the years. In stark contrast with a lot of other hosting vendors, we won’t compel you to update such sites, because a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have done modifications to its code to fill security breaches. For your convenience’s sake, you’ll even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each individual website hosted in your hosting account.

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

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support multiple PHP versions, which implies that you’ll be able to run all the applications that you’ve created through the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with every semi-dedicated account, will permit you to activate the version that you need with one mouse click. You can pick 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 regard to the web hosting platform, you will be able to pick a different version for each and every one of them no matter which version is enabled for the account as a whole. This is achievable owing to our in-house built cloud web hosting platform, which permits us to run different PHP versions at the same time. By comparison, the great majority of hosting suppliers typically support one, maximum two versions.
