PHP is one of the most commonly used open-source server-side scripting languages. It is extremely popular since it is free software, which you can use to develop interactive websites such as social networking websites, Internet shops or e-learning portals as opposed to static HTML sites. A PHP module must be installed on the web server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its code can be interpreted. Since there aren’t any license fees for this kind of module and the language offers endless options for the web-based applications that you develop, there are 100s of millions of PHP websites. On top of that, there’re lots of PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to possess any programming capabilities. Given the fact that there’re a few PHP versions, you must confirm if the exact same version that you used while setting up your website is installed on the server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting servers support different PHP versions, which implies that your websites will run faultlessly even if your PHP scripts are outdated. We know that an old site doesn’t necessarily suggest a vulnerable one as you may have implemented plenty of mods to its source code. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can pick which one will be enabled for your web hosting account. You can change the version with just one mouse click through your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will take effect right away. In case you would like to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each domain name of yours simultaneously.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’ve got a website created in an earlier version of PHP and you’ve contributed time and efforts into developing it, repairing security loopholes and inserting content, you will need to find a hosting service that can support it, since the vast majority of hosting vendors these days offer support only for the most recently unveiled PHP version and remove the older ones. We, however, have decided to permit you to pick the version that your sites require. Our semi-dedicated hosting service support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which means that you will be able to run both older and newer scripts without losing any manual settings or frittering away time and energy attempting to make your websites compatible with the hosting environment. You can change the version from the Hepsia Control Panel and such a change will apply to the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you’ll also be able to specify a different version for each individual website hosted in your account by means of an .htaccess config file.
