PHP, which is an acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most widely used server-side coding languages that are available out there. Any site or Internet application created using PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is installed, which renders the language really universal and it’s not that surprising that there are a couple of million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it enables you to create a dynamic website with lots of features. A PHP-based community web portal, for example, will show different content to each visitor irrespective of the fact that the URL will stay the same. In comparison, HTML-based websites are static and the page content can be edited only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst creating a particular website must be set up on the web server in order for the site to behave flawlessly.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting servers support several PHP versions, which suggests that your sites will work without any problem no matter if your PHP scripts are out of date. We realize that an old website does not necessarily suggest an insecure one as you may have implemented lots of mods to its source code. That is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can decide which one will be enabled for your shared web hosting account. You can change the version with a single mouse click within your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied immediately. In case you want to run both newer and older scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domains at the same time.

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

Our semi-dedicated plans support multiple versions of PHP, so you’ll be able to use all the Internet apps that you’ve developed through the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with every single semi-dedicated account, will allow you to activate the version that you need with just one mouse click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. In case you wish to host multiple sites in the very same account and they have various requirements about the web hosting platform, you will be able to choose a different PHP version for each of them no matter which version has been enabled for the account as a whole. This is possible thanks to our custom-developed cloud web hosting platform, which permits us to run several versions of PHP simultaneously. In stark comparison, the majority of hosting suppliers usually support one, in extremely rare cases – two versions.
