PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, usually called PHP, is a famous programming language, which is used to build dynamic websites with interactive components such as discussion boards, e-teaching sites or community sites. In stark contrast to static HTML-based sites, a PHP-powered website can display unique content to each user under the same exact URL. Because PHP-based Internet apps can be managed through one single Control Panel, which you can sign onto from any web browser, you won’t have to possess any programming capabilities or previous experience whatsoever in order to administer a PHP website. The fact that 100s of millions of sites all over the world are built with PHP is an indication of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You should only verify if the server on which your website is hosted supports the same exact PHP version as the one that you used whilst developing the website.

PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Website Hosting

Our website hosting servers support different PHP versions, which means that your websites will work properly no matter if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We acknowledge the fact that an old site does not inevitably mean an insecure one as you may have performed lots of mods to its code. That’s the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can decide which one will be enabled for your shared hosting account. You can change the version with just one single click of the mouse via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will be applied momentarily. If you wish to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even an option to use a different PHP version for each of your domains simultaneously.

PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a site built using a previous version of PHP and you’ve sacrificed time and energy in setting it up, repairing security loopholes and appending content, you will need a web hosting service that can support it, since the vast majority of web hosts today offer only the most recent PHP version and abandon the older versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you select the exact version that your very own sites require. Our semi-dedicated hosting plans support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which goes to say that you will be able to run both newer and older scripts without losing any customizations or misspending time and efforts trying to make your sites compatible with the hosting platform. You can change the current version from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will affect the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you’ll also have the ability to pick a different version of PHP for each single site hosted in your account by using an .htaccess config file.
