PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, typically called PHP, is a popular web development language, which can be used to build dynamic sites with interactive elements such as discussion forums, online learning websites or community portals. In comparison to static HTML-based sites, a PHP-powered site can show unique web content to each visitor under the very same URL. Because of the fact that PHP-based web-based apps can be managed through one Control Panel, which you can log into from any Internet browser, you will not need to have any web design know-how or previous experience whatsoever to administer a PHP-powered website. The fact that 100s of millions of websites all over the world are built with PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only need to verify that the web server where you host your website supports the same exact version of PHP as the one that you used whilst building the website.

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

In case you buy a cloud web hosting package from us, you will never have to speculate whether or not your sites are compatible with the web hosting environment, since different PHP versions are activated on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to select PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one single click of the mouse and in case you’d like to change the current version, the update will be applied right away. Thus, years of work on websites created with an older version of PHP won’t be in vain. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which means that you can run newer and older scripts at the same time. Most web hosting providers on the market offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. In contrast with them, we think that you should be the one to pick the version that will be used by your very own sites.

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

If you’ve got a site built using an earlier PHP version and you have dedicated time and efforts towards setting it up, repairing safety gaps and inputting page content, you’ll need a hosting service that can support it, since most web hosting providers nowadays offer support only for the most recently released PHP version and drop the earlier versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to permit you to select the version that your very own websites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which implies that you’ll be able to use both newer and older scripts without losing any custom modifications or wasting time and efforts struggling to make your websites compatible with the web hosting platform. You can change the current version through the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will apply to the whole account, but you will also have the ability to choose a different PHP version for each single website that you host in your account using an .htaccess configuration file.
