PHP is amongst the most widely used general-purpose scripting languages. It is rather popular as it is free software, which can be used to develop responsive sites such as community portals, e-shops or e-teaching sites instead of static HTML-based websites. A PHP module must be enabled on the web server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its code can be ‘decrypted’. As there aren’t any license charges for this sort of module and the language itself provides endless possibilities for the web-based apps that you create, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites. Also, there are a lot of PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to possess any coding experience. As there are a couple of versions of PHP, you need to confirm that the same exact version that you used while building your website is present on the web server too.

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

If you purchase a shared web hosting package from our company, you’ll never have to question yourself about whether your sites are compatible with the hosting platform, as different versions of PHP are activated on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with just one click of the mouse and if you wish to change the current version, the update will be applied immediately. Thus, years of work on websites created with an older version will not go down the tube. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain name hosted in your account, so you can run newer and older scripts at the same time. Most web hosting companies on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two PHP versions. Unlike them, we deem that you should be the one to pick the version that your very own websites will use.

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

Our semi-dedicated hosting support multiple PHP versions, which implies that you will be able to run all the web-based applications that you have built over the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated account, will allow you to activate the version that you need with one click of the mouse. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you would like to host multiple websites in one account and they have various requirements for the hosting platform, you will be able to choose a different PHP version for each one of them regardless of which version has been enabled for the account as a whole. That’s possible thanks to our in-house built cloud platform, which permits us to run multiple versions of PHP all at the same time. In stark comparison, the great majority of web hosting vendors usually offer one, in very rare cases – two versions.
