PHP, which is a meta-acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous open-source server-side coding languages that are available out there. Any site or web app created with PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language absolutely universal and it isn’t a surprise that there are actually several million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it permits you to build a dynamic website with an enormous number of features. A PHP-based social network, for instance, will show different web content to each user although the URL won’t change. In contrast, HTML sites are static and the page content itself can be updated only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst building a given website must be present on the web server in order for the site to behave faultlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Web Hosting
With our Linux web hosting packages, you’ll be able to select which PHP version will be active for your hosting account, since we offer support for different versions. With as little as one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is launched in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the previous versions. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you’ve built throughout the years. In contrast with lots of other hosting vendors, we will not force you to update such sites, as a script may be outdated, but this does not automatically mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have implemented modifications to its code to fill security breaches. For your convenience, you will even be able to choose a different version of PHP for each single site that you host in your hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

This can be accomplished simply by placing an .htaccess file inside the given site’s root directory. You can change the current version not only for a single site, but also for the whole account and the new settings will be applied in just a couple of minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be certain that you won’t ever confront any site compatibility hindrances.
