PHP, which is a bacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most commonly used imperative programming languages that are available out there. Any site or web app created with PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is activated, which makes the language absolutely universal and it isn’t really a huge surprise that there are actually a couple of million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it permits you to develop a dynamic website with loads of different features. A PHP-based community portal, for instance, will show different web content to each visitor in spite of the fact that the page URL will stay the same. By contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while setting up a specific website must be available on the server in order for the site to run correctly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Hosting
If you order a cloud hosting plan from us, you won’t ever need to speculate if your websites are compatible with the hosting platform, since we offer support for different versions of PHP for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with just one mouse click and in case you’d like to change the version, the new settings will be applied right away. Thus, years of work on sites created with an older version of PHP will not be wasted. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can use newer and older scripts at the same time. Most hosting providers on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two PHP versions. In contrast to them, we maintain that you should be the one to select the version that your very own websites will be using.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
It’s our conviction that several years spent building a website should not go down the tube, so if you order a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to run any script, irrespective of whether it is new or old. In contrast to lots of web hosting companies, we support a number of different versions of PHP on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only have the ability to enable the version that you need via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you’ll also have the option to specify a different version for each individual website.

You can change the version both for a single website and for the whole account and the change will take effect in less than a couple of minutes. With our hosting services, you can be sure that you will never come across any website incompatibility difficulties.
