PHP is among the most widely used general-purpose programming languages. It is extremely popular as it’s free software, which can be used to create interactive sites like community websites, online shopping portals or online teaching portals instead of static HTML websites. A PHP module should be available on the server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decrypted’. Since there are no license fees for this sort of module and the language offers countless possibilities for the applications that you create, there’re 100s of millions of PHP websites. Moreover, there’re plenty of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to possess any programming skills. Given the fact that there are a handful of versions of PHP, you should verify whether the exact same version that you used while setting up your site is present on the web server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Website Hosting
With our shared website hosting, you’ll be able to pick which PHP version will be enabled for your hosting account, since multiple versions are supported on our servers. With only one click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is unveiled in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older versions. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you have built over the years. Unlike many other hosting providers, we will not force you to update such sites, because a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t mean that it is vulnerable as you may have implemented modifications to its source code to prevent security gaps. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each single site hosted in your shared account.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
We’re steadfast in our opinion that years spent setting up a site shouldn’t go down the tube, which goes to say that if you get a semi-dedicated server from us, you’ll be able to run any script, no matter if it is old or new. In stark contrast to lots of web hosting suppliers, we support a number of different PHP versions on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only be able to activate the needed version via your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the possibility to select a different version for each individual website. This can be accomplished merely by putting an .htaccess file within the given site’s root folder. You can change the version both for a single site and for the account itself and the new settings will take effect in only several minutes. With our hosting services, you can rest assured that you won’t ever face any website incompatibility problems.
