PHP is amongst the most commonly used general-purpose server-side programming languages. It is highly popular as it’s free software, which you can use to set up interactive sites like social networks, Internet shops or e-teaching portals instead of static HTML sites. A PHP module should be available on the server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘decrypted’. As there are no license fees for this sort of module and the language itself provides incalculable possibilities for the apps that you build, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites. Also, there are a ton of PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to possess any coding experience. Considering the fact that there’re a handful of PHP versions, you should confirm that the same exact version that you used while setting up your website is activated on the server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting servers support different PHP versions, which suggests that your websites will run correctly no matter if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We recognize the fact that an old website does not automatically equal a vulnerable one as you may have implemented plenty of source code modifications. That’s the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can decide which one will be active for your account. You can change the version with only one single click of the mouse within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will be applied instantaneously. If you wish to run both newer and older scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domains simultaneously.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you’ve got a website created with an older PHP version and you have committed time and effort to developing it, patching security breaches and inputting web page content, you will need to find a hosting service that can support it, since the vast majority of hosting companies today support only the most recently launched version of PHP and remove the older versions. We, however, have decided to allow you to choose the exact version that your websites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, so you will be able to run both older and newer scripts without losing any custom tweaks or frittering away time and energy struggling to make your websites compatible with the web hosting platform. You can change the version via the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will apply to the entire semi-dedicated account, but you’ll also be able to select a different version of PHP for each site that you host in your account by means of an .htaccess file.
