PHP is one of the most widely used open-source programming languages. It is exceptionally popular because it is free software, which can be used to develop interactive websites such as community portals, e-stores or school websites instead of static HTML websites. A PHP module should be activated on the server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its source code can be read. Since there aren’t any license taxes for this kind of module and the language itself offers incalculable options for the web-based apps that you set up, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites. On top of that, there are plenty of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without having to possess any coding knowledge. As there’re different PHP versions, you should verify whether the same exact version that you used while setting up your site is available on the web server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Hosting
In case you order a shared hosting plan from our company, you will never need to wonder if your websites are compatible with the web hosting environment, as different versions of PHP are enabled on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to select PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one single click and if you want to change the current version, the new settings will be applied instantaneously. Thus, years of work on websites created with an older PHP version will not be wasted. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain name hosted in your account, which implies that you can run older and newer scripts at the same time. Most web hosting providers on the market support one, sometimes two PHP versions. Unlike them, we are strongly convinced that you should be the one to choose the version that your very own sites will be using.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a website built with an older PHP version and you have devoted time and efforts towards setting it up, fixing security gaps and embedding web page content, you will need a hosting service that can support it, as the majority of web hosting providers today offer support only for the most recently released version of PHP and abandon the older ones. We, however, have decided to permit you to select the version that your very own sites require. Our semi-dedicated plans support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which goes to say that you’ll be able to use both older and newer scripts without losing any custom modifications or frittering away time and effort attempting to make your sites compatible with the hosting platform. The current version can be changed through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will affect the entire account, but you will also have the ability to pick a different version for each site hosted in your account by using an .htaccess configuration file.
