PHP, which is a recursive backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most popular object-oriented programming languages available out there. Any website or web app created in PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language truly universal and it is not a huge surprise that there are a couple of million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it permits you to build a dynamic site with lots of different features. A PHP-based social networking website, for example, will show different content to each user irrespective of the fact that the URL won’t change. In comparison, HTML-based sites are static and the page content itself can be updated only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst developing a given website must be set up on the server in order for the site to work correctly.

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

We’ve made the decision not to prevent our present and potential clients from picking what PHP version will be used by their sites, which goes to say that in case you order a cloud web hosting package from us, you’ll be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the account as a whole, but also for each individual domain name hosted by you. This can be accomplished with only one single click from our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared hosting accounts are managed, which is the reason why you won’t need to possess any programming or technical know-how. You’ll be able to manage websites based on both old and new scripts without a problem, so if you want to abandon your present web hosting services provider and move over to us, you can be certain that all the websites that you have developed over the years will continue to work impeccably.

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

Our semi-dedicated servers support multiple PHP versions, so you will be able to use all the Internet apps that you have built throughout the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with every account, will allow you to set the version that you need with just one mouse click. You can choose between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you would like to host multiple websites under the very same account and they have different requirements respecting the web hosting platform, you will be able to specify a different version for each one of them no matter which version has been enabled for the account as a whole. This is accomplishable thanks to our in-house built cloud web hosting platform, which allows us to run multiple versions of PHP at once. In stark contrast, the great majority of web hosting vendors typically support one, in exceptionally rare cases – two versions.
