PHP, which stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most widely used open-source server-side scripting languages available out there. Any website or web application built with PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language really universal and it’s not that surprising that there are actually a couple of million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP sites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it permits you to create a dynamic serving website with loads of different features. A PHP-based social networking site, for example, will show unique content to each visitor even though the page URL won’t change. By contrast, HTML websites are static and the page content can be updated only manually. Like any other software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while developing a particular website must be set up on the web server in order for the site to work properly.

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

We’ve decided not to restrict our present and potential clients from choosing the PHP version that their websites will use, which goes to say that if you order a shared hosting package from us, you will be able to pick between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the hosting account itself, but also for each individual domain that you host. This can be done with only one mouse click from our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all shared accounts are managed, which is why you will not need to possess any programming or technical capabilities. You will be able to run sites built with both old and new PHP scripts without having to overcome any hindrances, so if you wish to change your current hosting company and move over to us, you can be certain that all the sites that you’ve created throughout the years will continue to run impeccably.

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

If you’ve got a website created using an older PHP version and you’ve spent time and energy developing it, fixing safety gaps and entering web content, you will need to find a hosting service that can support it, since most web hosting suppliers these days support only the most recently unveiled version of PHP and remove the previous versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you pick the version that your websites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which implies that you’ll be able to run both older and newer scripts without forfeiting any manual settings or wasting time and effort attempting to make your websites compatible with the hosting environment. The version can be changed from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will affect the whole semi-dedicated account, but you’ll also be able to choose a different version for each single site that you host in your account by using an .htaccess config file.
