PHP is among the most commonly used open-source server-side scripting languages. It is pretty popular since it is free software, which you can use to create responsive sites like social networks, online shopping portals or e-teaching websites rather than static HTML-based websites. A PHP module must be enabled on the web server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘translated’. Since there are no license charges for such a module and the language itself provides incalculable options for the Internet applications that you create, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP sites. Also, there are heaps of PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without having to possess any coding capabilities. Considering the fact that there’re a couple of versions of PHP, you have to verify if the same version that you used whilst setting up your site is available on the web server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Hosting
With our Linux shared packages, you’ll be able to select the version of PHP that will be active for your shared web hosting account, as multiple versions are enabled on our servers. With only one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is published in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the earlier versions. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you’ve developed through the years. In stark contrast to lots of other hosting companies, we will not force you to update such sites, as a script may be out of date, but this does not automatically mean that it’s insecure as you may have done modifications to its code to prevent security holes. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to set a different PHP version for each single website hosted in your hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We are unwavering in our opinion that years spent developing a site shouldn’t go down the drain, so in case you order a semi-dedicated server from us, you’ll be able to run any script, irrespective of whether it’s old or new. In stark contrast to many companies, we support several different PHP versions on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only have the ability to activate the required version through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you will also have the option to choose a different version for each single website. The latter can be done merely by adding an .htaccess file to the given site’s root folder. You can change the current version not only for a single website, but also for the entire account and the change will be applied in just a couple of minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be sure that you won’t ever confront any website incompatibility predicaments.
