PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, typically referred to as PHP, is a popular web programming language, which is used to set up dynamic websites with interactive elements such as message boards, e-teaching websites or social networking websites. In contrast with static HTML-based websites, a PHP-driven site can display different content to each user under the very same URL. As PHP-based web applications can be managed through one single Control Panel tool, which you can log on to using any Internet browser, you will not need to have any web development abilities or previous experience in order to run a PHP site. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites worldwide are built using PHP is indicative of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only have to check if the server on which your site is hosted supports the same version of PHP as the one that you used while setting up the website.

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

Our cloud hosting servers support different PHP versions, which goes to say that your websites will work properly no matter if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We acknowledge the fact that an old website doesn’t inevitably suggest an insecure one as you may have performed plenty of source code modifications. This is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can choose which version will be active for your shared web hosting account. The version can be changed with only one single click of the mouse via your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied instantaneously. If you’d like to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each domain name of yours at the same time.

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

It’s our firm opinion that years spent developing a website shouldn’t go down the tube, which means that in case you buy a semi-dedicated server from us, you’ll be able to run any script, no matter if it’s old or new. In stark contrast with many web hosts, we support a number of different PHP versions on our innovative cloud web hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only have the ability to activate the version that you need via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you’ll also have the option to set a different version for each website. The latter can be accomplished simply by inserting an .htaccess file in the root folder of the given site. You can change the current version both for a single website and for the account itself and the new settings will be applied in no more than a couple of minutes. With our hosting services, you can be certain that you will never stumble upon any website compatibility complications.
