PHP, which is a recursive initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most widely used multiparadigm programming languages that are available out there. Any website or application created using PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is activated, which makes the language truly universal and it’s by no means surprising that there are actually a few million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it enables you to set up a dynamic serving site with a lot of different features. A PHP-based social network, for example, will serve different web content to each visitor although the page URL won’t change. In comparison, HTML-based sites are static and the page content can be updated only manually. Like any other software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used whilst building a certain website must be installed on the server in order for the site to work properly.

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

We’ve decided not to prevent our current and prospective clients from picking what PHP version their websites will use, which suggests that in case you buy a web hosting package from our company, you will be able to select between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the account itself, but also for each single domain hosted by you. This can be done with just one single click from our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared hosting accounts are administered, which is the reason why you will not need to have any coding or technical skills. You’ll be able to manage sites based on both old and new PHP-based scripts without problems, so if you’d like to abandon your current hosting company and switch over to us, you can rest assured that all the websites that you’ve developed over the years will continue to work impeccably.

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

We’re strong in our conviction that several years spent setting up a website should not be wasted, which goes to say that in case you get a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to run any script, no matter if it is new or old. In contrast to many web hosting vendors, we support several different versions of PHP on our ground-breaking cloud platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only be able to enable the version that you need through your Hepsia Control Panel, but you will also have the option to select a different PHP version for each website. This can be done merely by putting an .htaccess file inside the given site’s root directory. You can change the current version not only for a single website, but also for the account itself and the new settings will take effect in only a few minutes. With our web hosting services, you can rest assured that you will never bump into any website incompatibility challenges.
