PHP is among the most commonly used general-purpose server-side scripting languages. It is highly popular since it is free software, which you can use to set up interactive sites such as social networking sites, e-shops or e-learning websites rather than static HTML sites. A PHP module must be installed on the server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its code can be ‘decoded’. As there aren’t any license fees for such a module and the language itself provides infinite possibilities for the web apps that you create, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP websites. Plus, there’re plenty of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without having to possess any coding expertise. Since there’re a number of versions of PHP, you must make sure that the very same version that you used while developing your site is activated on the server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Web Hosting
In case you get a shared web hosting plan from our company, you’ll never need to speculate whether your websites are compatible with the hosting environment, as different PHP versions are supported on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with just one single mouse click and if you’d like to change the current version, the update will take effect right away. Thus, years of work on websites built with an older version will not go down the tube. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, so you can use older and newer scripts at the same time. Most hosting providers on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In contrast with them, we strongly deem 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 Hosting
It’s our unwavering conviction that years spent creating a website shouldn’t go down the drain, so if you order a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to use any script, regardless of whether it is new or old. In stark contrast to a lot of hosting companies, we support several different versions of PHP on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only have the ability to activate the needed version through your Hepsia Control Panel, but you will also have the possibility to set a different version for each single website. The latter can be accomplished merely by putting an .htaccess file in the given site’s root folder. You can change the current version either for a single website or for the account itself and the new settings will be applied in just several minutes. With our web hosting services, you can rest assured that you will never face any website compatibility complications.
