PHP, which is a recursive abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous general-purpose server-side programming languages out there. Any site or app created with PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language really universal and it is hardly a surprise that there are actually a few million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it allows you to create an interactive website with a ton of features. A PHP-based community web portal, for instance, will serve different web content to each user irrespective of the fact that the page URL won’t change. On the other hand, HTML websites are static and the page content itself can be edited only manually. Like any other software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used while setting up a given website must be enabled on the server so that the site can run flawlessly.

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

We’ve decided not to restrict our present and prospective clients from selecting what PHP version will be used by their sites, which implies that in case you purchase a hosting plan from us, you’ll be able to select between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account in general, but also for each individual domain hosted by you. This can be accomplished with only one single mouse click from our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel via which all web hosting accounts are administered, which is the reason why you will not have to possess any programming or technical abilities. You will be able to host websites based on both old and new scripts without any problem, so if you’d like to drop your present hosting company and move over to us, you can be certain that all the websites that you’ve set up throughout the years will continue to run faultlessly.

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

Our semi-dedicated servers support multiple PHP versions, which suggests that you will be able to run all the applications that you’ve set up over the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with every semi-dedicated account, will allow you to activate the required version with just one mouse click. You can choose between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you want to host multiple websites in a single account and they have various requirements regarding the web hosting platform, you will be able to choose a different PHP version for each one of them irrespective of which version has been selected for the account itself. That’s achievable thanks to our in-house developed cloud web hosting platform, which allows us to run different PHP versions all at the same time. By contrast, the majority of web hosts normally support one, in extremely rare cases – two versions.
