PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, typically called PHP, is a famous general-purpose server-side programming language, which is used to develop dynamic sites with interactive features like discussion boards, online teaching websites or community websites. In stark contrast with static HTML-based sites, a PHP-driven website can display different web content to each user under the same exact URL. Because of the fact that PHP-based applications can be managed through a single Control Panel, which you can log in to using any browser, you will not need any computer programming skills or past experience whatsoever to administer a PHP-powered site. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites around the world are built using PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You should only confirm whether or not the server where you host your site supports the same PHP version as the one that you used while developing the site.

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

Our cloud website hosting servers support different PHP versions, which suggests that your websites will work without any problems no matter if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We know that an old website doesn’t necessarily suggest an insecure one as you may have implemented lots of modifications to its code. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can choose which one will be enabled for your shared web hosting account. You can change the version with only one click of the mouse inside your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will be applied instantaneously. In case you’d like to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each of your domains at the same time.

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

Even in case your websites were built with an earlier PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support different versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be activated for your account with no more than one click via our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Besides 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. The latter has already been abandoned by most web hosting vendors, but we are strongly convinced that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a website that took years to set up, as older programming language syntax does not always equal safety loopholes. Quite the opposite, an adequately maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an incompetently maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we’ll also provide you with the opportunity to specify a different PHP version for each single site within the account.
