PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, usually called PHP, is a popular object-oriented programming language, which is used to develop dynamic websites with interactive components like discussion forums, e-learning sites or community sites. In stark contrast with static HTML-based websites, a PHP-driven website can serve different content to each user under the same page URL. Because of the fact that PHP-based web-based apps can be managed via one Control Panel, which you can log into using any online browser, you won’t have to possess any coding abilities or practical experience whatsoever in order to maintain a PHP site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites all over the world are built using PHP is indicative of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only ought to check whether or not the web server on which your website is hosted supports the same exact version of PHP as the one that you used whilst building the site.

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

We’ve reached a decision not to restrict our current and future clients from picking the PHP version that their sites will use, so if you get a cloud hosting plan from us, you will be able to pick between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account as a whole, but also for each domain name that you host. This can be accomplished with only one single mouse click from our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared hosting accounts are managed, which is why you will not have to possess any technical or coding capabilities. You’ll be able to host websites based on both new and old PHP scripts without having to deal with any obstructions, so if you would like to leave your current web host and move over to us, you can be sure that all the websites that you’ve developed through the years will continue to work correctly.

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’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support different versions running at the same time on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with just one click of the mouse via our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Aside from the latest PHP 8, we also support 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 dropped by the vast majority of web hosting companies, but we strongly think that you should not be forced to modify a website that took years to build, as older programming language syntax does not invariably suggest security holes. Quite the opposite, an adequately maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an unmaintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we’ll also give you the opportunity to select a different version of PHP for each single site within the account.
