PHP is amongst the most commonly used open-source programming languages. It’s exceptionally popular because it’s free software, which can be used to build responsive websites such as community websites, online stores or e-learning sites instead of static HTML sites. A PHP module should be enabled on the server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘translated’. As there are no license fees for this kind of module and the language itself provides countless possibilities for the Internet apps that you develop, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites. What’s more, there are a vast number of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to possess any programming knowledge. As there are a handful of versions of PHP, you have to verify if the exact same version that you used whilst building your site is enabled on the web server too.

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

In case you order a web hosting plan from our company, you won’t ever have to speculate on whether your sites are compatible with the hosting platform, as several PHP versions are supported on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to select PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with just one single click and in case you need to change the current version, the new settings will be applied instantaneously. Thus, many years of work on sites created with an older version won’t go down the tubes. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, so you can use older and newer scripts at the same time. Most hosting providers on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two versions of PHP. Unlike them, we consider that you should be the one to pick the version that will be used by your very own sites.

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

Our Linux semi-dedicated servers support multiple versions of PHP, so you’ll be able to run all the web apps that you’ve created over the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated server account, will allow you to enable the required version with one single click of the mouse. You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you wish to host multiple websites in one account and they have distinct requirements as respects the web hosting environment, you’ll be able to pick a different PHP version for each one of them regardless of which version is enabled for the account as a whole. This is possible owing to our custom cloud web hosting platform, which allows us to run multiple PHP versions simultaneously. In stark comparison, most web hosting companies normally support one, maximum two versions.
