PHP is one of the most commonly used open-source server-side scripting languages. It is exceptionally popular as it is free software, which you can use to develop responsive websites like community sites, e-commerce portals or online learning portals instead of static HTML websites. A PHP module should be available on the server where a PHP site is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘decrypted’. Since there are no license charges for this sort of module and the language provides limitless options for the Internet apps that you build, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites. Plus, there are a large number of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to have any coding abilities. Considering the fact that there’re a couple of PHP versions, you have to confirm that the exact 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 Hosting
With our Linux hosting, you will be able to choose which PHP version will be active for your hosting account, since we support several versions. With as little as one click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is introduced in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the earlier versions. Thus, you will be able to host all the websites that you have set up through the years. In stark contrast with lots of other web hosting companies, we will not force you to update such sites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it is insecure since you may have edited its code to prevent security holes. For the sake of your convenience, you’ll even be able to choose a different version of PHP for each website hosted in your account.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a site based on an earlier PHP version and you have put time and energy toward developing it, repairing safety breaches and posting web page content, you will need to find a hosting service that can support it, since nearly all web hosting suppliers these days offer support only for the most recent PHP version and abandon the previous versions. We, however, have decided to let you choose the version that your own websites need. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which implies that you will be able to use both older and newer scripts without losing any custom modifications or frittering away time and energy striving to make your websites compatible with the hosting platform. The version can be changed via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will apply to the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you’ll also have the ability to specify a different version of PHP for each individual site hosted in your account by means of an .htaccess config file.
