PHP, which is an initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most popular reflective programming languages out there. Any site or Internet app created with PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is activated, which makes the language really universal and it’s not really a big surprise that there are actually several million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it permits you to create a dynamic serving website with a lot of features. A PHP-based community site, for instance, will serve unique web content to each visitor in spite of the fact that the page URL will remain unchanged. By contrast, HTML sites are static and the page content itself can be updated only manually. Like any other software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst developing a particular website must be configured on the web server so that the site can run properly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Hosting
Our hosting servers support several PHP versions, so your sites will run without any problems no matter if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We know that an old site doesn’t necessarily mean an insecure one as you may have done plenty of mods to its source code. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can select which one will be active for your account. You can change the version with just one single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied instantaneously. If you would like to run both newer and older scripts, there is even an option to use a different version of PHP for each of your domains at the same time.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a website based on a previous version of PHP and you have dedicated time and energy to developing it, plugging safety loopholes and embedding web page content, you’ll need to find a web hosting service that can support it, since nearly all hosting suppliers these days offer support only for the most recently unveiled PHP version and remove the earlier ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to allow you to pick the exact version that your websites require. Our semi-dedicated hosting plans support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which goes to say that you will be able to use both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any customizations or frittering away time and energy attempting to make your websites compatible with the web hosting environment. The current version can be changed through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will affect the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you’ll also have the ability to select a different version of PHP for each site hosted in your account using an .htaccess configuration file.
