PHP, which is a recursive backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most popular object-oriented programming languages that are available out there. Any website or web-based app based on PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language absolutely universal and it isn’t very surprising that there are actually a couple of million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it permits you to create an interactive website with a large number of features. A PHP-based community site, for instance, will display unique content to each visitor regardless of the fact that the page URL will stay unchanged. By contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the page content can be edited only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used while setting up a specific website must be enabled on the web server in order for the site to work flawlessly.

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

With our shared service, you will be able to select which PHP version will be enabled for your account, since several versions are available on our servers. With only one click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is unveiled in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous ones. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you have developed over the years. Unlike many other web hosting suppliers, we will not force you to update such websites, because a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s vulnerable since you may have implemented modifications to its source code to fill safety loopholes. For your convenience’s sake, you will even be able to pick a different PHP version for each individual website hosted in your hosting account.

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

This can be accomplished merely by putting an .htaccess file into the root folder of the given site. You can change the version both for a single website and for the account itself and the update will take effect in only several minutes. With our hosting services, you can be certain that you will never chance upon any website incompatibility obstacles.
