PHP is among the most commonly used coding languages. It’s rather popular because it’s free software, which you can use to develop interactive sites like social networking websites, web shops or e-teaching websites rather than static HTML-based sites. A PHP module must be available on the web server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘translated’. Since there are no license charges for such a module and the language provides infinite possibilities for the Internet apps that you build, there are 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites. What’s more, there are loads of PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without having to possess any programming abilities. Since there’re a few versions of PHP, you must verify that the exact same version that you used whilst developing your site is enabled on the server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which suggests that your sites will run correctly no matter if your PHP scripts are outdated. We accept the fact that an old site does not necessarily imply an insecure one as you may have implemented lots 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 shared hosting account. The version can be changed with only one single click of the mouse inside your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will take effect immediately. If you wish to run both newer and older scripts, there is even an option to use a different version of PHP for each of your domain names simultaneously.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you’ve got a website created in an earlier version of PHP and you’ve sacrificed time and efforts in setting it up, patching security loopholes and posting web page content, you will need to find a hosting service that can support it, since the majority of hosting companies these days offer support only for the newest version of PHP and remove the previous ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to allow you to choose the version that your sites need. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which goes to say that you will be able to run both older and newer scripts without losing any custom modifications or wasting time and energy striving to make your sites compatible with the hosting platform. You can change the current version from the Hepsia Control Panel and such a change will apply to the entire account, but you will also be able to set a different PHP version for each single website hosted in your account by means of an .htaccess file.
