PHP is one of the most commonly used server-side scripting languages. It is rather popular as it is free software, which can be used to set up responsive websites such as social networking websites, e-stores or online learning portals as opposed to static HTML sites. A PHP module must be installed on the server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘decoded’. Since there are no license charges for such a module and the language provides incalculable possibilities for the Internet applications that you set up, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites. Plus, there are a ton of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to have any coding expertise. Since there’re several PHP versions, you should confirm that the same exact version that you used while creating your site is enabled on the web server too.

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

We have made a conscious decision not to prevent our present and prospective clients from picking what PHP version their sites will be using, which means that if you purchase a cloud hosting plan from us, you will be able to select between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the hosting account as a whole, but also for each single domain that you host. This can be accomplished with just one mouse click through our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all hosting accounts are administered, which is the reason why you will not need any technical or coding abilities. You’ll be able to host sites built with both new and old scripts without trouble, so if you want to leave your current hosting vendor and migrate over to us, you can rest assured that all the websites that you’ve developed through the years will continue to run properly.

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

In case you have a website created using an older PHP version and you have devoted time and energy toward developing it, fixing safety holes and inputting web page content, you’ll need to find a web hosting service that can support it, since the vast majority of web hosting providers these days offer only the most recently launched PHP version and give up the previous versions. We, however, have decided to permit you to select the version that your own websites need. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, so you’ll be able to use both older and newer scripts without forfeiting any custom tweaks or wasting time attempting to make your websites compatible with the web hosting platform. The current version can be changed via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will affect the whole semi-dedicated account, but you’ll also have the ability to choose a different PHP version for each individual site that you host in your account by means of an .htaccess file.
