PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also referred to as PHP, is a famous server-side scripting language, which can be used to set up dynamic sites with interactive features like discussion boards, e-teaching portals or community sites. In comparison to static HTML websites, a PHP-powered site can serve unique content to each user under the same page URL. Since PHP-based Internet apps can be managed via one Control Panel, which you can sign onto using any web browser, you will not need any computer programming expertise or practical experience in order to run a PHP-driven website. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites around the world are built with PHP is an indication of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You must only check if the web server on which your site is hosted supports the very same PHP version as the one that you used whilst building the website.

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

If you buy a web hosting package from us, you won’t ever have to speculate whether or not your websites are compatible with the web hosting platform, as different versions of PHP are installed on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to select PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one click and if you want to change the current version, the update will be applied instantly. Thus, years of work on websites built with an older version of PHP won’t be wasted. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, so you can run newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most hosting providers on the market offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. In contrast with them, we strongly deem that you should be the one to select the version that your own websites will use.

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

In case you have a site created using an earlier PHP version and you have devoted time and effort toward developing it, filling security holes and inserting content, you’ll need a hosting service that can support it, as the vast majority of hosting providers today offer only the latest version of PHP and abandon the earlier ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to allow you to choose the exact version that your own sites require. Our semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which means that you’ll be able to use both older and newer scripts without forfeiting any custom settings or wasting time trying to make your sites compatible with the hosting environment. You can change the current version from the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will affect the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you will also be able to choose a different version of PHP for each single site hosted in your account by means of an .htaccess file.
