PHP is one of the most commonly used object-oriented programming languages. It is highly popular because it is free software, which can be used to set up responsive websites such as community web portals, web shops or online teaching websites as opposed to static HTML-based websites. A PHP module must be installed on the server where a PHP website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decrypted’. As there are no license fees for this sort of module and the language itself offers incalculable possibilities for the web-based apps that you develop, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP sites. In addition, there are a lot of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without having to possess any programming know-how. Considering the fact that there are different PHP versions, you should ensure that the very same version that you used while creating your site is available on the server as well.

PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Hosting

In case you buy a cloud hosting plan from us, you’ll never have to question yourself about whether your websites are compatible with the hosting environment, since we offer support for different versions of PHP for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one single click of the mouse and if you’d like to change the current version, the update will be applied straight away. In this way, years of work on websites built with an older version of PHP won’t go down the drain. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, so you can use newer and older scripts at the same time. Most hosting companies on the market offer one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In contrast to them, we strongly believe that you should be the one to select the version that your very own sites will use.

PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a website created using an earlier version of PHP and you’ve put in time and efforts into developing it, patching security loopholes and appending page content, you will need to find a web hosting service that can support it, as the vast majority of web hosting companies today support only the newest PHP version and abandon the older versions. We, however, have decided to let you choose the version that your very own websites need. Our semi-dedicated hosting packages support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which suggests that you will be able to use both older and newer scripts without forfeiting any custom settings or frittering away time and efforts striving to make your websites compatible with the web hosting platform. The current version can be changed through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will apply to the entire account, but you will also be able to choose a different version of PHP for each website that you host in your account using an .htaccess config file.
