PHP is amongst the most widely used curly-brace programming languages. It is highly popular since it is free software, which can be used to build interactive sites like community portals, e-commerce portals or online learning portals rather than static HTML-based websites. A PHP module must be installed on the server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its code can be ‘decoded’. Since there aren’t any license charges for this kind of module and the language provides incalculable possibilities for the applications that you build, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites. Plus, there’re lots of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to have any programming expertise. As there’re a number of versions of PHP, you have to confirm that the very same version that you used whilst creating your site is available on the server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which suggests that your sites will work correctly no matter if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We accept the fact that an old website doesn’t automatically equal an insecure one as you may have performed lots of code mods. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can decide which one will be active for your shared web hosting account. You can change the version with only one single click of the mouse within your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will be applied momentarily. If you’d like to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even an option to use a different version of PHP for each of your domain names at the same time.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a website created with a previous version of PHP and you have poured time and energy into developing it, patching security loopholes and posting page content, you’ll need a hosting service that can support it, since the majority of web hosting vendors nowadays offer support only for the latest version of PHP and drop the previous ones. We, however, have decided to allow you to choose the exact version that your own websites need. Our semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which implies that you’ll be able to run both newer and older scripts without losing any manual settings or wasting time attempting to make your sites compatible with the hosting platform. You can change the version through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will apply to the whole account, but you’ll also be able to pick a different PHP version for each individual site that you host in your account by using an .htaccess config file.
