PHP is one of the most widely used general-purpose programming languages. It’s quite popular as it’s free software, which can be used to develop interactive websites such as community web portals, web shops or online teaching sites instead of static HTML sites. A PHP module must be activated on the server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its code can be ‘decoded’. As there are no license charges for such a module and the language offers unlimited options for the web apps that you set up, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites. On top of that, there are tons of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to have any programming knowledge. As there are a couple of PHP versions, you need to make certain that the same version that you used whilst setting up your website is available on the web server too.

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

If you buy a cloud hosting package from us, you won’t ever have to ponder over whether your sites are compatible with the hosting platform, since we offer multiple versions of PHP for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one single mouse click and if you want to change the current version, the update will be applied momentarily. In this way, many years of work on websites created with an older version of PHP will not be lost. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which means that you can use newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most hosting companies on the market offer one, sometimes two PHP versions. In contrast with them, we consider that you should be the one to pick the version that will be used by your very own websites.

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

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages support multiple versions of PHP, so you will be able to use all the web apps that you have set up over the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each single semi-dedicated server account, will permit you to activate the version that you need with one click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you wish to host multiple websites in one account and they have diverse requirements towards the hosting platform, you will be able to pick a different PHP version for each one of them regardless of which version has been enabled for the account itself. That’s possible thanks to our custom-built cloud web hosting platform, which permits us to run different versions of PHP concurrently. In comparison, the majority of web hosting companies typically offer one, occasionally two versions.
