PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, typically called PHP, is a famous coding language, which is used to create dynamic sites with interactive components like bulletin boards, online learning websites or community sites. In stark contrast to static HTML websites, a PHP website can display unique content to each visitor under the exact same page URL. Given the fact that PHP-based web-based applications can be managed through one single Control Panel tool, which you can sign into from any browser, you won’t need any web development skills or previous experience whatsoever to administer a PHP-driven website. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites all over the world are built with PHP is an indication of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You only ought to confirm if the web server on which your website is hosted supports the same exact PHP version as the one that you used while setting up the website.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which implies that your websites will run faultlessly even if your PHP scripts are outdated. We realize that an old website doesn’t always imply an insecure one as you may have implemented a lot of modifications to its source 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 web hosting account. You can change the version with one mouse click from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will be applied straight away. If you wish to run both older and newer scripts, there is even an option to use a different version of PHP for each of your domain names at the same time.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Even in case your sites were created with an older version of PHP, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support several versions running at the same time on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with no more than one click via our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. Other than the most recent PHP 8, we also offer support for 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, which has already been abandoned by the vast majority of web hosts, but we hold that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a site that took several years to set up, as older scripting language syntax doesn’t invariably suggest safety gaps. On the contrary, a rightly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a poorly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we’ll also give you the opportunity to set a different PHP version for each single site within the account.
