PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, otherwise known as PHP, is a famous object-oriented programming language, which can be used to develop dynamic sites with interactive features like forums, online teaching portals or community sites. Unlike static HTML-based sites, a PHP-driven website can serve unique content to each user under the same URL. Since PHP-based Internet apps can be managed via one Control Panel, which you can access from any web browser, you won’t need to possess any web development experience or past experience whatsoever to maintain a PHP-driven website. The fact that 100s of millions of sites all over the globe are PHP-based is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You only ought to verify if the web server where you host your site supports the same exact PHP version as the one that you used whilst developing the website.

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

Our hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which means that your websites will run without any problem no matter if your scripts are out of date. We acknowledge the fact that an old website doesn’t invariably equal an insecure one as you may have done a lot of code modifications. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can select which version will be enabled for your shared hosting account. You can change the version with just one mouse click through your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will be applied immediately. In case you wish to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even an option to use a different PHP version for each domain name of yours simultaneously.

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

Even if your sites were created with an earlier PHP version, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support multiple versions running at the same time on our servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with no more than one click through our custom-developed Hepsia hosting 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. The latter has already been abandoned by the majority of hosting providers, but we trust that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a site that took years to build, as older scripting language syntax does not automatically mean safety loopholes. Quite the opposite, a properly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than a wrongly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we will also give you the opportunity to select a different version of PHP for each website within the account.
