PHP is one of the most commonly used server-side scripting languages. It is very popular as it is free software, which can be used to build interactive websites such as community sites, web shops or e-teaching websites rather than static HTML-based websites. A PHP module should be available on the web server where a PHP site is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decrypted’. Since there aren’t any license fees for this type of module and the language provides endless options for the web applications that you develop, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites. Also, there are a vast number of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to possess any programming knowledge. Considering the fact that there are several versions of PHP, you should make certain that the exact same version that you used while developing your website is present on the server too.

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

Our cloud hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which implies that your sites will work properly even if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We acknowledge the fact that an old website does not automatically suggest a vulnerable one as you may have done lots of code modifications. That is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can select which one will be active for your hosting account. The version can be changed with only one single click of the mouse through your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied straight away. If you would like to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domain names simultaneously.

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

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support multiple PHP versions, which suggests that you will be able to run all the Internet applications that you have built through the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with every semi-dedicated account, will allow you to activate the required version with one mouse click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. If you would like to host multiple sites in one account and they have various requirements relating to the web hosting platform, you will be able to specify a different version for each and every one of them regardless of which version is enabled for the account as a whole. That’s accomplishable thanks to our in-house developed cloud hosting platform, which allows us to run multiple versions of PHP all at the same time. By comparison, the majority of web hosting providers normally offer one, in extremely rare cases – two versions.
