PHP is among the most widely used general-purpose server-side scripting languages. It is very popular since it’s free software, which you can use to build interactive sites like community portals, online shops or online teaching sites instead of static HTML websites. A PHP module should be installed on the web server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its source code can be read. As there are no license charges for this kind of module and the language itself offers innumerable possibilities for the web applications that you develop, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites. In addition, there are numerous open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to possess any programming abilities. Considering the fact that there are a couple of versions of PHP, you ought to verify if the exact same version that you used whilst building your website is activated on the web server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Web Hosting
With our Linux cloud web hosting services, you’ll be able to pick the PHP version that will be active for your account, since we support different versions. With only one mouse click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is introduced in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you’ve set up throughout the years. In contrast to lots of other hosting providers, we will not force you to update such websites, because a script may be out of date, but this does not mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have tweaked its source code to fill security breaches. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to specify a different PHP version for each single site hosted in your shared web hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated services support multiple versions of PHP, which means that you’ll be able to use all the web apps that you have created over the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with every semi-dedicated server account, will permit you to activate the required version with one single mouse click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. If you want to host multiple websites under the very same account and they have distinct requirements with regards to the web hosting environment, you will be able to set a different version for each of them irrespective of which version has been enabled for the account itself. This is achievable thanks to our custom cloud hosting platform, which permits us to run multiple versions of PHP at the same time. In comparison, most web hosting providers usually offer one, sometimes two versions.
