PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, otherwise referred to as PHP, is a popular imperative programming language, which can be used to build dynamic sites with interactive features such as discussion forums, online learning sites or social networking websites. In comparison with static HTML-based websites, a PHP-powered website can serve unique content to each visitor under the exact same URL. Due to the fact that PHP-based applications can be managed via one single Control Panel tool, which you can sign on to using any web browser, you will not need to have any computer programming capabilities or previous experience whatsoever in order to maintain a PHP-powered site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites all over the world are built with PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You should only confirm that the server where you host your site supports the very same version of PHP as the one that you used while setting up the site.

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

We’ve made the decision not to restrict our present and prospective clients from choosing the PHP version that their sites will use, which suggests that in case you order a shared hosting plan from us, you will be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account as a whole, but also for each individual domain hosted by you. This can be done with just one single click of the mouse through our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel via which all accounts are administered, which is why you will not have to possess any technical or coding skills. You’ll be able to host sites based on both old and new scripts without having to deal with any complications, so if you wish to change your current web hosting vendor and move over to us, you can rest assured that all the websites that you have set up through the years will continue to run properly.

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

If you have a website built using an older version of PHP and you have committed time and efforts into developing it, fixing safety gaps and publishing web content, you’ll need a hosting service that can support it, since most hosting vendors today support only the latest version of PHP and drop the previous ones. We, however, have decided to allow you to pick the version that your sites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which suggests that you’ll be able to use both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any manual settings or wasting time attempting to make your sites compatible with the web hosting platform. You can change the version from the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will affect the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you’ll also have the ability to specify a different version for each website that you host in your account using an .htaccess configuration file.
