PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, commonly known as PHP, is a popular object-oriented programming language, which can be used to build dynamic websites with interactive elements like message boards, online learning websites or community websites. In stark contrast to static HTML-based sites, a PHP-driven website can display unique web content to each user under the same exact page URL. Because of the fact that PHP-based web applications can be managed through one Control Panel, which you can log into from any online browser, you will not have to possess any coding abilities or previous experience whatsoever to run a PHP-powered website. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the world are created with PHP is an indication of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You only have to verify that the server on which your website is hosted supports the same exact version of PHP as the one that you used while building the site.

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

If you order a shared website hosting package from us, you won’t ever have to question yourself about whether your sites are compatible with the hosting environment, as several PHP versions are installed on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to select PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one click of the mouse and in case you want to change the current version, the update will take effect instantly. In this way, several years of work on sites created with an older PHP version won’t be wasted. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, which suggests that you can use newer and older scripts at the same time. Most hosting companies on the market offer support for one, sometimes for two versions of PHP. In contrast with them, we reckon that you should be the one to choose the version that your very own websites will use.

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

Even in case your sites were created with an older PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support several versions running simultaneously on our servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with no more than a click via our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. Apart from 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 the vast majority of hosting providers, but we trust that you should not be forced to modify a site that took several years to create, since older programming language syntax doesn’t inevitably mean security holes. On the contrary, a well-maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than a mismaintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also provide you with the possibility to choose a different version of PHP for each site within the account.
