PHP is one of the most commonly used class-based programming languages. It is pretty popular as it is free software, which you can use to set up interactive websites like community websites, e-commerce portals or online learning websites rather than static HTML-based websites. A PHP module should be activated on the web server where a PHP site is hosted so that its code can be ‘decrypted’. Since there aren’t any license charges for such a module and the language provides innumerable options for the Internet apps that you create, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites. Plus, there’re plenty of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to have any coding skills. As there’re several versions of PHP, you have to check if the exact same version that you used while developing your website is present on the web server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Hosting
In case you order a shared hosting package from our company, you will never have to question yourself about whether your sites are compatible with the web hosting environment, as we support different PHP versions for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one mouse click and in case you want to change the current version, the update will take effect momentarily. In this way, many years of work on websites created with an older PHP version will not be lost. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain name hosted in your account, which means that you can use older and newer scripts at the same time. Most web hosting companies on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In stark contrast with them, we strongly consider that you should be the one to pick the version that will be used by your own websites.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated services support multiple versions of PHP, which means that you will be able to use all the web-based applications that you’ve developed through the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated server account, will allow you to activate the version that you need with a single mouse click. You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. If you would like to host multiple websites under one account and they have different requirements toward the web hosting environment, you’ll be able to set a different version for each and every one of them regardless of which version is selected for the account itself. This is achievable thanks to our custom cloud platform, which permits us to run different versions of PHP all at the same time. In comparison, most web hosts typically offer one, in extremely rare cases – two versions.
