PHP is amongst the most commonly used general-purpose server-side coding languages. It is quite popular as it is free software, which can be used to create interactive websites like community websites, web shops or school websites instead of static HTML sites. A PHP module must be available on the web server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its code can be ‘deciphered’. Since there are no license charges for such a module and the language offers limitless options for the web apps that you set up, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP websites. Furthermore, there are an enormous number of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to possess any coding abilities. Since there’re a number of versions of PHP, you have to verify that the same exact version that you used whilst developing your site is activated on the web server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Website Hosting
Our website hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which means that your websites will work properly no matter if your scripts are outdated. We acknowledge the fact that an old site doesn’t necessarily suggest an insecure one as you may have done a lot of modifications 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 active for your hosting account. You can change the version with a single mouse click inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will be applied momentarily. In case you’d like to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domain names simultaneously.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated packages support multiple PHP versions, so you will be able to use all the web-based applications that you’ve set up over the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated server account, will allow you to set the needed version with one click of the mouse. You can choose between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. If you would like to host multiple websites under one and the very same account and they have various requirements as regards the hosting platform, you’ll be able to specify a different version for each of them irrespective of which version is enabled for the account itself. That’s achievable thanks to our custom cloud hosting platform, which permits us to run several PHP versions concurrently. In contrast, the vast majority of hosting vendors usually offer one, in exceptionally rare cases – two versions.
