PHP is among the most commonly used multiparadigm programming languages. It’s highly popular because it’s free software, which can be used to build interactive sites such as social networking websites, online shops or online learning portals as opposed to static HTML websites. A PHP module must be activated on the server where a PHP website is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘deciphered’. Because there are no license charges for this sort of module and the language itself provides unlimited possibilities for the web apps that you create, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites. Furthermore, there are plenty of PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to possess any programming abilities. Given the fact that there’re a handful of versions of PHP, you need to make sure that the same exact version that you used while setting up your site is installed on the server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Website Hosting
With our cloud website hosting, you’ll be able to choose the version of PHP that will be enabled for your shared account, since we offer support for several versions. With just one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is published in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older ones. Thus, you will be able to host all the websites that you’ve built over the years. In stark contrast to lots of other web hosting companies, we will not compel you to update such sites, because a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t mean that it’s vulnerable since you may have carried out modifications to its source code to patch security gaps. For your convenience’s sake, you’ll even be able to pick a different PHP version for each site hosted in your shared web hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting support multiple PHP versions, which means that you’ll be able to run all the web apps that you’ve developed over the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with every single semi-dedicated server account, will allow you to activate the version that you need with only one click of the mouse. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you want to host multiple websites under a single account and they have distinctive requirements regarding the hosting platform, you’ll be able to pick a different PHP version for each and every one of them irrespective of which version is selected for the account as a whole. This is achievable thanks to our in-house developed cloud hosting platform, which allows us to run multiple versions of PHP concurrently. By contrast, the vast majority of web hosting vendors normally support one, in very rare cases – two versions.
