PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, commonly called PHP, is a famous web programming language, which is used to set up dynamic sites with interactive features like forums, online learning sites or community portals. In stark contrast to static HTML-based websites, a PHP site can display unique web content to each user under the same exact URL. Due to the fact that PHP-based apps can be managed through a Control Panel, which you can log in to from any online browser, you will not need any web development capabilities or practical experience to administer a PHP-driven website. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites around the world are created with PHP is an indication of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You only ought to confirm whether the server on which your website is hosted supports the exact same PHP version as the one that you used whilst building the site.

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

With our shared website hosting, you’ll be able to select which PHP version will be enabled for your web hosting account, as we offer support for several versions. With only one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is unveiled in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the earlier versions. Thus, you will be able to host all the websites that you’ve set up over the years. In stark contrast with lots of other web hosts, we will not force you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have implemented modifications to its source code to fill security breaches. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to set a different version of PHP for each individual site hosted in your account.

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

Even if your websites were created with an earlier PHP version, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support multiple versions running simultaneously on our servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with no more than one click through our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Besides the latest 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. The latter has already been dropped by the vast majority of hosting companies, but we strongly reckon that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a site that took years to create, since older scripting language syntax does not automatically mean safety loopholes. Just the opposite, a correctly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than an incompetently maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we will also offer you the opportunity to pick a different version for each individual website within the account.
