PHP is among the most widely used general-purpose server-side scripting languages. It is exceptionally popular since it is free software, which you can use to set up interactive websites like community sites, e-shops or online teaching portals rather than static HTML websites. A PHP module should be activated on the server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘translated’. Because there are no license taxes for such a module and the language itself provides endless possibilities for the applications that you create, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites. In addition, there are plenty of PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to have any coding knowledge. Since there are a few versions of PHP, you should ensure that the same version that you used while building your site is installed on the server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Web Hosting
If you buy a cloud web hosting package from us, you won’t ever have to speculate about whether your sites are compatible with the web hosting platform, since several PHP versions are available on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one click of the mouse and if you want to change the version, the new settings will take effect momentarily. In this way, many years of work on websites built with an older PHP 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, which means that you can run older and newer scripts at the same time. Most web hosting companies on the market support one, sometimes two PHP versions. In stark contrast to them, we are convinced that you should be the one to pick the version that your own websites will be using.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
It’s our unfaltering conviction that years spent creating a website shouldn’t be lost, which goes to say that if you purchase a semi-dedicated server from us, you’ll be able to use any script, irrespective of whether it’s old or new. In contrast with many web hosting companies, we support several different versions of PHP on our ground-breaking cloud platform – 4, 5 and 7. Not only will you have the ability to activate the required version via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you will also have the possibility to select a different version for each website. The latter can be done merely by putting an .htaccess file within the given site’s root directory. You can change the current version either for a single website or for the entire account and the new settings will take effect in only several minutes. With our hosting services, you can be certain that you won’t ever run into any website incompatibility problems.
