PHP is amongst the most widely used curly-bracket programming languages. It’s very popular as it’s free software, which you can use to build interactive sites such as social networking sites, e-stores or online teaching portals rather than static HTML-based sites. A PHP module should be present on the server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its code can be ‘translated’. Since there aren’t any license charges for this sort of module and the language itself offers unlimited possibilities for the web apps that you develop, there’re 100s of millions of PHP sites. What is more, there are a ton of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to possess any programming knowledge. As there’re different versions of PHP, you need to verify that the same version that you used while setting up your site is activated on the server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Website Hosting
We’ve made the decision not to prevent our current and future customers from selecting the PHP version that their sites will use, which suggests that in case you purchase a shared website hosting plan from our company, you’ll be able to select between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account as a whole, but also for each individual domain hosted by you. This can be accomplished with just one click of the mouse from our custom Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared web hosting accounts are managed, which is the reason why you won’t need any technical or programming knowledge. You’ll be able to host sites based on both new and old PHP-based scripts without any hassle, so if you would like to drop your present hosting vendor and switch over to us, you can be certain that all the websites that you have created through the years will continue to run faultlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you’ve got a site built using an older PHP version and you have put time and effort into setting it up, fixing security breaches and entering content, you’ll need a hosting service that can support it, as almost all hosting providers these days offer support only for the most recent PHP version and abandon the older versions. We, however, have decided to allow you to select the exact version that your own sites need. Our semi-dedicated hosting packages support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which goes to say that you will be able to use both newer and older scripts without losing any manual settings or misspending time and energy trying to make your websites compatible with the hosting environment. The current version can be changed from the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will apply to the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you will also be able to specify a different version of PHP for each single site hosted in your account using an .htaccess configuration file.
