PHP is amongst the most commonly used interpreted programming languages. It is very popular as it is free software, which can be used to build interactive sites such as social networking websites, web stores or online learning sites as opposed to static HTML sites. A PHP module must be present on the web server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘decoded’. As there are no license fees for this kind of module and the language itself provides incalculable options for the web apps that you set up, there’re 100s of millions of PHP websites. Additionally, there are numerous open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to have any programming expertise. Considering the fact that there are a number of PHP versions, you have to make certain that the exact same version that you used while creating your site is enabled on the server as well.

Our cloud hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which implies that your sites will run correctly even if your scripts are outdated. We accept the fact that an old website doesn’t always mean an insecure one as you may have performed plenty of code mods. That is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can select which one will be active for your web hosting account. You can change the version with one single click of the mouse via your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied right away. In case you’d like to run both newer and older scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each of your domain names at the same time.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with each semi-dedicated account, will allow you to set the needed version with one mouse click. You can choose between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you wish to host multiple sites in one single account and they have diverse requirements toward the web hosting environment, you’ll be able to pick a different PHP version for each one of them regardless of which version has been selected for the account as a whole.
