PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, otherwise known as PHP, is a popular general-purpose server-side programming language, which is used to set up dynamic sites with interactive components such as Internet forums, online learning portals or community portals. In comparison to static HTML-based sites, a PHP-driven website can display unique web content to each visitor under the same page URL. Due to the fact that PHP-based web-based apps can be managed through one Control Panel, which you can sign into from any Internet browser, you won’t have to possess any web development abilities or prior experience to run a PHP site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the globe are built with PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only have to check whether the web server where you host your website supports the very same PHP version as the one that you used whilst building the website.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which goes to say that your sites will run without any problems even if your scripts are outdated. We acknowledge the fact that an old website does not inevitably imply an insecure one as you may have implemented lots of mods to its code. This is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can choose which version will be enabled for your shared hosting account. The version can be changed with just one single click via your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will take effect straight away. If you wish to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even an option to use a different PHP version for each of your domains at the same time.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans support multiple versions of PHP, which goes to say that you’ll be able to use all the web-based apps that you have built over the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with every account, will allow you to activate the version that you need with just one click of the mouse. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you’d like to host multiple sites under one and the very same account and they have distinct requirements regarding the hosting environment, you will be able to specify a different version for each and every one of them no matter which version is enabled for the account as a whole. This is possible thanks to our custom-developed cloud platform, which allows us to run several PHP versions at the same time. By comparison, the great majority of web hosts normally offer one, in rare cases – two versions.
