PHP, which is an acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most widely used dynamic programming languages out there. Any website or Internet application built with PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language really universal and it’s hardly unusual that there are several million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it enables you to develop a responsive website with heaps of features. A PHP-based social networking site, for example, will show different content to each user although the URL won’t change. In contrast, HTML websites are static and the content on the pages can be updated only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while developing a specific website must be set up on the web server in order for the site to run properly.

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

If you buy a hosting package from us, you won’t ever need to ponder whether your websites are compatible with the web hosting platform, since several PHP versions are available on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with just one single click of the mouse and in case you want to change the current version, the new settings will be applied right away. In this way, years of work on websites created with an older version won’t be in vain. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, which means that you can use newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most hosting companies on the market support one, sometimes two PHP versions. In stark contrast with them, we believe that you should be the one to pick the version that your own websites will use.

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

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support multiple PHP versions, which means that you’ll be able to run all the Internet apps that you have developed throughout the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with each and every account, will permit you to activate the required version with one click. You can choose between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you’d like to host multiple websites in one and the same account and they have distinct requirements in relation to the hosting environment, you’ll be able to pick a different version for each one of them irrespective of which version is selected for the account itself. That’s achievable thanks to our in-house created cloud platform, which permits us to run different PHP versions concurrently. In stark contrast, the majority of hosting suppliers typically support one, sometimes two versions.
