PHP is amongst the most widely used multiparadigm programming languages. It is very popular as it’s free software, which you can use to build interactive websites such as community sites, online stores or school websites rather than static HTML websites. A PHP module must be activated on the web server where a PHP site is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘decrypted’. As there aren’t any license fees for this sort of module and the language offers innumerable possibilities for the Internet applications that you set up, there’re 100s of millions of PHP websites. In addition, there are loads of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to possess any coding know-how. Considering the fact that there are different PHP versions, you should verify if the same version that you used while building your website is enabled on the web server too.

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

Our cloud hosting servers support several PHP versions, which means that your websites will work correctly even if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We acknowledge the fact that an old site does not invariably suggest a vulnerable one as you may have implemented plenty of mods to its source code. That is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can pick which version will be enabled for your shared web hosting account. The version can be changed with just one single mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will take effect momentarily. If you would like to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even an option to use a different version of PHP for each of your domains simultaneously.

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

If you’ve got a site created using an older PHP version and you’ve contributed time and energy to developing it, repairing security breaches and appending web page content, you’ll need to find a hosting service that can support it, since almost all web hosting providers nowadays support only the most recent PHP version and abandon the earlier ones. We, however, have decided to let you pick the version that your own websites require. Our semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which means that you’ll be able to use both older and newer scripts without losing any manual settings or frittering away time struggling to make your websites compatible with the hosting environment. You can change the version through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will apply to the whole semi-dedicated server account, but you will also have the ability to specify a different version of PHP for each site that you host in your account by using an .htaccess config file.
