PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly called PHP, is a famous server-side coding language, which is used to develop dynamic sites with interactive features such as Internet forums, school websites or community web portals. In contrast with static HTML-based sites, a PHP-driven website can show different web content to each user under the same page URL. As PHP-based web applications can be managed through one Control Panel, which you can log in to from any web browser, you will not need to possess any coding skills or previous experience whatsoever in order to run a PHP-powered site. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites all over the globe are PHP-based is indicative of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only need to verify that the server where you host your website supports the exact same PHP version as the one that you used while building the website.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Hosting
With our shared hosting service, you will be able to select which PHP version will be active for your shared web hosting account, as several versions are available on our servers. With just one mouse click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is introduced in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older versions. Thus, you will be able to host all the sites that you’ve developed through the years. In stark contrast with a lot of other companies, we will not force you to update such sites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t mean that it’s vulnerable since you may have done modifications to its source code to patch security loopholes. For your convenience’s sake, you will even be able to specify 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 in case your sites were built with an earlier PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support multiple versions running at the same time on our semi-dedicated servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with just one click of the mouse through our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. Other than the latest 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, which has already been abandoned by most web hosts, but we strongly trust that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a site that took years to develop, since older programming language syntax doesn’t necessarily imply security weaknesses. Just the opposite, a well-maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an incompetently maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we will also provide you with the possibility to pick a different version for each single site within the account.
