PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, commonly known as PHP, is a famous general-purpose server-side coding language, which is used to create dynamic sites with interactive features like forums, e-learning sites or community websites. In comparison with static HTML websites, a PHP-driven website can serve different content to each visitor under the exact same page URL. Because PHP-based web-based apps can be managed via a single Control Panel tool, which you can log on to from any web browser, you won’t need to possess any web development expertise or past experience to maintain a PHP-powered website. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites all over the world are built using PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You should only confirm whether or not the web server where you host your website supports the same PHP version as the one that you used while developing the website.

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

We have made a conscious decision not to restrict our current and potential customers from choosing the PHP version that their websites will use, which implies that if you get a shared hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to choose 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 just one click of the mouse through our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared hosting accounts are managed, so you will not need to have any coding or technical abilities. You will be able to run websites built with both old and new PHP scripts without having to overcome any obstructions, so if you would like to drop your present hosting vendor and migrate over to us, you can be certain that all the sites that you have developed through the years will continue to run correctly.

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

In case you’ve got a website built with an earlier PHP version and you’ve committed time and efforts into setting it up, repairing safety gaps and publishing page content, you will need a hosting service that can support it, since almost all web hosting providers today offer support only for the most recently unveiled PHP version and abandon the previous ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to allow you to choose the exact version that your very own sites require. Our semi-dedicated plans support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which means that you’ll be able to use both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any manual modifications or wasting time and efforts striving to make your websites compatible with the web hosting platform. The current version can be changed from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will apply to the whole semi-dedicated account, but you will also be able to select a different version of PHP for each single site hosted in your account by using an .htaccess config file.
