PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, commonly known as PHP, is a popular curly-bracket programming language, which is used to create dynamic websites with interactive elements such as discussion forums, school websites or social networks. In contrast to static HTML-based sites, a PHP-driven site can display unique web content to each user under the same URL. Because PHP-based web applications can be managed via one single Control Panel tool, which you can log onto using any browser, you won’t need any web development expertise or practical experience whatsoever in order to run a PHP site. The fact that 100s of millions of websites all over the globe are built on PHP is an indication of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You should only ensure that the web server where you host your site supports the exact same PHP version as the one that you used while building the site.

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

We have made the decision not to restrict our current and prospective clients from choosing the PHP version that their websites will be using, which implies that in case you get a website hosting package from us, you will be able to select between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the account in general, but also for each single domain hosted by you. This can be accomplished with only one single click of the mouse from our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all web hosting accounts are administered, which is why you will not need to have any technical or programming know-how. You’ll be able to run sites built with both old and new PHP-based scripts without having to deal with any difficulties, so if you decide to abandon your current web hosting supplier and switch over to us, you can be certain that all the sites that you’ve created throughout the years will continue to work perfectly.

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

Even if your sites were created with an earlier 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 servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with no more than one click of the mouse from our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Apart from the newest 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. The latter has already been dropped by the vast majority of hosting suppliers, but we strongly trust that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a site that took years to develop, since older script language syntax doesn’t necessarily imply safety gaps. Quite the opposite, a rightly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than an improperly maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also offer you the opportunity to choose a different PHP version for each website within the account.
