PHP, which is a recursive backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most popular open-source programming languages that are available out there. Any website or Internet application built using PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language absolutely universal and it is little wonder that there are actually several million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites hosted on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it allows you to set up a responsive site with a lot of different features. A PHP-based community website, for instance, will display different content to each user irrespective of the fact that the page URL won’t change. On the other hand, HTML sites are static and the page content itself can be updated only manually. Like any other software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst developing a specific website must be installed on the server in order for the site to run flawlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Website Hosting
With our Linux website hosting, you will be able to choose the version of PHP that will be enabled for your hosting account, since different versions are available on our servers. With as little as one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is unveiled in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the older versions. In this way, you will be able to host all the sites that you have developed over the years. In contrast to a lot of other providers, we will not force you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t mean that it’s insecure as you may have tweaked its code to prevent security holes. For your convenience’s sake, you will even be able to select a different version of PHP for each individual website hosted in your hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support multiple PHP versions, which goes to say that you’ll be able to use all the Internet apps that you’ve created through the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated account, will allow you to enable the needed version with one single click of the mouse. You can choose between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you want to host multiple websites under one account and they have special requirements in relation to the web hosting platform, you’ll be able to set a different version for each and every one of them regardless of which version has been enabled for the account itself. This is achievable owing to our custom cloud platform, which allows us to run multiple PHP versions at the same time. In stark comparison, the majority of web hosting suppliers usually offer one, occasionally two versions.
