PHP is amongst the most commonly used open-source web programming languages. It is rather popular as it is free software, which can be used to set up responsive websites such as community portals, online stores or online teaching websites rather than static HTML sites. A PHP module must be activated on the server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its source code can be interpreted. As there are no license charges for this kind of module and the language offers unlimited options for the applications that you set up, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites. Additionally, there are an immense number of PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to possess any coding abilities. Considering the fact that there’re several PHP versions, you have to make sure that the same version that you used whilst creating your website is installed on the server too.

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

Our shared hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which means that your sites will work without any problem even if your PHP scripts are outdated. We accept the fact that an old website doesn’t automatically equal an insecure one as you may have carried out plenty of mods to its source code. This is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can select which version will be active for your web hosting account. The version can be changed with a single click of the mouse within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will be applied instantly. If you’d like to run both older and newer scripts, there is even an option to use a different version of PHP for each of your domain names at the same time.

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

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support multiple PHP versions, which means that you will be able to use all the web apps that you have created through the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with every semi-dedicated account, will allow you to enable the needed version with a single click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you would like to host multiple websites under one account and they have distinctive requirements relative to the web hosting environment, you’ll be able to pick a different PHP version for each of them no matter which version is selected for the account as a whole. That’s achievable thanks to our in-house created cloud hosting platform, which permits us to run multiple PHP versions at once. By comparison, the majority of web hosts typically offer one, in exceptionally rare cases – two versions.
