PHP is one of the most commonly used web programming languages. It is quite popular because it’s free software, which you can use to develop responsive sites such as community portals, Internet shops or e-teaching portals rather than static HTML sites. A PHP module should be enabled on the web server where a PHP website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decoded’. Since there are no license fees for this type of module and the language offers unlimited possibilities for the applications that you build, there’re 100s of millions of PHP sites. Plus, there are many PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to have any coding capabilities. Given the fact that there’re different versions of PHP, you have to make certain that the same version that you used whilst building your site is installed on the web server too.

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

If you order a web hosting package from our company, you won’t ever need to wonder whether or not your sites are compatible with the hosting environment, as we support several versions of PHP for your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with just one click of the mouse and in case you’d like to change the version, the new settings will take effect instantaneously. Thus, several years of work on websites created with an older PHP version won’t go down the tubes. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, which means that you can run older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting companies on the marketplace support one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In contrast to them, we strongly believe that you should be the one to select the version that your own sites will use.

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

In case you have a website built on an earlier PHP version and you have donated time and efforts into developing it, repairing security holes and embedding web content, you’ll need to find a hosting service that can support it, as nearly all web hosting companies today offer only the most recently released version of PHP and abandon the older versions. We, however, have decided to let you choose the exact version that your websites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which means that you will be able to run both older and newer scripts without losing any manual settings or misspending time and energy striving to make your sites compatible with the web hosting environment. You can change the version from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will affect the whole semi-dedicated server account, but you will also have the ability to choose a different version of PHP for each individual site that you host in your account by using an .htaccess configuration file.
