PHP is one of the most commonly used scripting languages. It is quite popular since it is free software, which can be used to create responsive websites such as community portals, e-shops or online learning sites as opposed to static HTML-based websites. A PHP module should be installed on the server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decrypted’. Since there are no license fees for this sort of module and the language itself offers countless possibilities for the web-based apps that you build, there are 100s of millions of PHP sites. What’s more, there are a myriad of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to possess any coding skills. Since there’re different versions of PHP, you should check whether the very same version that you used while building your site is present on the web server as well.

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

With our Linux cloud website hosting, you will be able to choose the PHP version that will be active for your web hosting account, since we offer support for several versions. With only one click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is launched in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous versions. In this way, you will be able to host all the websites that you have set up over the years. In contrast with lots of other web hosting suppliers, we won’t force you to update such sites, as a script may be out of date, but this does not automatically mean that it is insecure as you may have modified its source code to fix security breaches. For the sake of your convenience, you’ll even be able to set a different PHP version for each single website that you host in your shared account.

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

Our semi-dedicated hosting services support multiple PHP versions, which means that you’ll be able to use all the apps that you have created through the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with every single semi-dedicated server account, will enable you to enable the version that you need with a single click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. If you wish to host multiple websites in one and the very same account and they have different requirements as concerns the hosting platform, you will be able to choose a different version for each one of them no matter which version has been selected for the account as a whole. This is achievable thanks to our custom-developed cloud hosting platform, which permits us to run several versions of PHP all at the same time. In comparison, the vast majority of web hosting companies usually support one, maximum two versions.
