PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also called PHP, is a famous scripting language, which can be used to develop dynamic websites with interactive features like discussion forums, e-teaching portals or community websites. In contrast with static HTML-based sites, a PHP site can display different content to each visitor under the same page URL. Since PHP-based Internet applications can be managed via a Control Panel, which you can access from any Internet browser, you won’t need to possess any coding capabilities or previous experience to maintain a PHP website. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites all over the globe are built on PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You only need to make certain that the web server where you host your website supports the same exact version of PHP as the one that you used while building the website.

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

Our cloud hosting servers support several PHP versions, which implies that your sites will run without any problem no matter if your PHP scripts are out of date. We acknowledge the fact that an old website does not invariably suggest an insecure one as you may have done lots of source code modifications. That is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can pick which version will be enabled for your web hosting account. The version can be changed with only one single click of the mouse within your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will take effect instantly. If you want to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domains at the same time.

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

If you’ve got a website created in an earlier PHP version and you’ve spent time and efforts on developing it, fixing security breaches and appending content, you will need a hosting service that can support it, since nearly all web hosting suppliers nowadays offer only the most recently launched PHP version and give up the previous versions. We, however, have decided to let you choose the exact version that your own websites require. Our semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, so you’ll be able to run both newer and older scripts without losing any manual tweaks or misspending time and efforts trying to make your websites compatible with the web hosting platform. You can change the version via the Hepsia Control Panel and such a change will apply to the entire account, but you will also be able to select a different PHP version for each individual site hosted in your account by using an .htaccess configuration file.
