PHP, which is a recursive initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most commonly used general-purpose server-side scripting languages that are available out there. Any site or web application created with PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is activated, which renders the language absolutely universal and it isn’t very surprising that there are actually several million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it enables you to build a dynamic website with lots of features. A PHP-based social network, for example, will show unique web content to each visitor although the URL will remain the same. By contrast, HTML websites are static and the page content can be updated only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst building a given website must be configured on the server so that the site can run properly.

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

With our shared hosting, you’ll be able to choose which version of PHP will be enabled for your web hosting account, since multiple versions are supported on our servers. With just one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is launched in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older versions. Thus, you will be able to host all the sites that you have built throughout the years. In stark contrast with a lot of other hosting providers, we won’t compel you to update such websites, because a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it is insecure since you may have implemented modifications to its code to plug security holes. For your convenience’s sake, you’ll even be able to select a different version of PHP for each site that you host in your hosting account.

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

You will not only be able to activate the needed version through your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the option to select a different version for each single website. This can be accomplished merely by adding an .htaccess file to the root folder of the given site. You can change the version both for a single website and for the whole account and the change will take effect in only a couple of minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be sure that you won’t ever bump into any site compatibility predicaments.
