PHP is amongst the most commonly used curly-bracket programming languages. It is extremely popular since it’s free software, which you can use to develop responsive websites such as social networking websites, online shops or e-teaching websites instead of static HTML websites. A PHP module must be installed on the server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘decoded’. Since there are no license taxes for such a module and the language offers infinite possibilities for the Internet apps that you build, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites. Besides, there are numerous open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without having to possess any coding capabilities. Since there are a few versions of PHP, you need to verify that the exact same version that you used whilst creating your site is activated on the web server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Web Hosting
In case you purchase a shared web hosting plan from us, you’ll never need to speculate as to whether your sites are compatible with the hosting environment, since we support several PHP versions for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one single click and if you need to change the version, the new settings will take effect right away. In this way, years of work on sites built with an older version won’t be lost. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can run newer and older scripts at the same time. Most hosting companies on the market offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. In stark contrast to them, we are convinced that you should be the one to pick the version that your very own sites will be using.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you’ve got a site created in an earlier version of PHP and you have poured in time and energy into developing it, patching safety loopholes and posting web page content, you will need to find a web hosting service that can support it, as most web hosts these days support only the most recent PHP version and drop the older versions. We, however, have decided to permit you to pick the version that your very own websites need. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which means that you will be able to use both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any customizations or wasting time struggling to make your sites compatible with the web hosting environment. You can change the version through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will apply to the whole semi-dedicated account, but you will also have the ability to pick a different version for each individual website hosted in your account by using an .htaccess config file.
