PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, commonly called PHP, is a popular programming language, which can be used to create dynamic websites with interactive features like message boards, e-learning portals or social networking sites. In stark contrast to static HTML sites, a PHP site can serve different content to each user under the exact same page URL. Since PHP-based apps can be managed via one Control Panel tool, which you can log on to from any online browser, you will not need to possess any web design capabilities or practical experience whatsoever in order to administer a PHP-driven site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites all over the globe are built with PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only ought to confirm that the server on which your website is hosted supports the same PHP version as the one that you used whilst setting up the site.

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

Our cloud hosting servers support several PHP versions, which goes to say that your websites will work without any problem no matter if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We know that an old site does not always equal a vulnerable one as you may have done lots of code modifications. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can select which one will be enabled for your shared hosting account. The version can be changed with only one single click of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will take effect momentarily. In case you would like to run both older and newer scripts, there is even an option to use a different PHP version for each of your domain names simultaneously.

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

If you have a website created in an older version of PHP and you have dedicated time and efforts on developing it, filling safety breaches and inputting web page content, you’ll need to find a web hosting service that can support it, as almost all hosting suppliers these days offer only the latest PHP version and remove the previous versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to permit you to select the exact version that your very own sites require. Our semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which goes to say that you will be able to run both older and newer scripts without forfeiting any manual tweaks or wasting time and energy struggling to make your sites compatible with the web hosting platform. The current version can be changed from the Hepsia Control Panel and such a change will affect the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you’ll also have the ability to select a different version of PHP for each single site that you host in your account using an .htaccess configuration file.
