PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly known as PHP, is a popular curly-bracket programming language, which is used to build dynamic sites with interactive elements like forums, e-teaching sites or community websites. In comparison with static HTML websites, a PHP-powered website can show unique content to each visitor under the exact same URL. As PHP-based web-based applications can be managed via a single Control Panel tool, which you can log into using any online browser, you will not need to possess any coding experience or practical experience whatsoever in order to maintain a PHP website. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites worldwide are created with PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You must only confirm if the web server on which your site is hosted supports the exact same PHP version as the one that you used while setting up the website.

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

With our shared website hosting plans, you will be able to pick which PHP version will be active for your shared web hosting account, as we offer support for different versions. With as little as one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is released in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the earlier versions. In this way, you will be able to host all the sites that you’ve created over the years. In contrast to a lot of other web hosting suppliers, we will not compel you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it’s insecure since you may have modified its code to prevent security loopholes. For your convenience’s sake, you will even be able to select a different PHP version for each website that you host in your shared web hosting account.

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

In case you’ve got a site built using an earlier PHP version and you’ve dedicated time and energy to developing it, repairing safety breaches and appending content, you will need a hosting service that can support it, since the majority of hosting vendors nowadays offer support only for the most recently published PHP version and give up the previous ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you select the exact version that your very own sites need. Our semi-dedicated hosting plans support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which goes to say that you will be able to use both older and newer scripts without forfeiting any custom settings or misspending time struggling to make your websites compatible with the web hosting environment. The current version can be changed from the Hepsia Control Panel and such a change will apply to the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you’ll also have the ability to specify a different version for each individual website hosted in your account by using an .htaccess config file.
