PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also known as PHP, is a popular web programming language, which is used to set up dynamic sites with interactive components like Internet forums, online teaching websites or community web portals. In contrast with static HTML-based websites, a PHP site can serve unique content to each user under the exact same URL. As PHP-based Internet apps can be managed via one single Control Panel tool, which you can log into from any browser, you will not need to possess any programming capabilities or past experience whatsoever to run a PHP-driven website. The fact that 100s of millions of websites around the globe are created using PHP is an indication of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You must only check whether the web server on which your website is hosted supports the same exact version of PHP as the one that you used while developing the site.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Hosting
We have decided not to restrict our current and prospective customers from selecting the PHP version that their sites will use, so in case you get a hosting plan from us, you will be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account in general, but also for each single domain hosted by you. This can be done with just one single mouse click through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared accounts are managed, which is the reason why you won’t need to have any coding or technical abilities. You will be able to manage websites built with both old and new PHP scripts without having to overcome any obstacles, so if you decide to swap your present hosting provider and move over to us, you can be sure that all the sites that you’ve set up throughout the years will continue to work flawlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Even if your websites were built with an earlier PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support different versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be activated for your account with just a click via our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. Besides the most recent PHP 8, we also support 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been dropped by most web hosts, but we are convinced that you should not be compelled to modify a site that took several years to set up, since older programming language syntax doesn’t necessarily suggest safety breaches. Quite the opposite, a rightly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a poorly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we’ll also offer you the possibility to select a different version for each individual site within your account.
