PHP is among the most widely used open-source server-side scripting languages. It is rather popular since it’s free software, which can be used to develop responsive websites such as social networks, shopping portals or online teaching portals rather than static HTML sites. A PHP module must be present on the web server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its code can be read. As there aren’t any license taxes for this kind of module and the language itself provides innumerable options for the Internet applications that you build, there are 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites. In addition, there’re lots of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to have any coding abilities. Since there’re a handful of versions of PHP, you must confirm that the same version that you used while developing your site is installed on the web server as well.

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

Our website hosting servers support different PHP versions, which implies that your sites will run correctly no matter if your scripts are outdated. We know that an old website does not inevitably imply a vulnerable one as you may have carried out a lot of mods to its code. That is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can select which version will be enabled for your shared hosting account. You can change the version with just one click in your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will be applied instantly. In case you’d like to run both older and newer scripts, there is even an option to use a different PHP version for each of your domain names at the same time.

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

In case you’ve got a website created with a previous version of PHP and you have donated time and effort towards setting it up, repairing safety gaps and inputting web page content, you’ll need a hosting service that can support it, since nearly all web hosts these days offer only the most recently unveiled version of PHP and drop the previous versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you choose the exact version that your own sites need. Our semi-dedicated hosting plans support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which suggests that you’ll be able to use both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any custom tweaks or frittering away time attempting to make your websites compatible with the web hosting environment. The version can be changed via the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will apply to the entire account, but you will also have the ability to set a different PHP version for each single website hosted in your account using an .htaccess file.
