PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, typically called PHP, is a famous general-purpose programming language, which is used to develop dynamic sites with interactive components like bulletin boards, school websites or social networking sites. Unlike static HTML-based websites, a PHP site can display different web content to each visitor under the exact same page URL. Since PHP-based apps can be managed through a Control Panel, which you can log on to using any web browser, you will not need any web design knowledge or practical experience whatsoever to run a PHP-powered website. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites worldwide are created with PHP is an indication of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You only ought to confirm whether or not the server on which your website is hosted supports the exact same version of PHP as the one that you used whilst creating the website.

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

With our hosting service, you’ll be able to pick which PHP version will be enabled for your shared hosting account, since different versions are enabled on our servers. With just one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is launched in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the older ones. Thus, you will be able to host all the sites that you have built through the years. In stark contrast to many other web hosting companies, we will not compel you to update such websites, because a script may be out of date, but this does not necessarily mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have implemented modifications to its source code to plug security loopholes. For your convenience’s sake, you will even be able to select a different version of PHP for each individual website that you host in your shared hosting account.

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

Even if your sites were created 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 at the same time on our servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with no more than a click of the mouse from our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. Besides the latest PHP 8, we also offer 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 most web hosting providers, but we reckon that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a website that took several years to create, since older programming language syntax does not automatically imply security loopholes. Just the opposite, a correctly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than a wrongly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we will also give you the possibility to choose a different PHP version for each individual website within the account.
