PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly known as PHP, is a popular server-side scripting language, which can be used to set up dynamic websites with interactive components like discussion boards, e-teaching sites or community websites. In contrast with static HTML sites, a PHP-powered website can show unique web content to each visitor under the very same page URL. Because PHP-based applications can be managed through one single Control Panel, which you can log on to from any Internet browser, you will not need any computer programming know-how or previous experience in order to maintain a PHP website. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites around the world are created with PHP is an indication of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You must only confirm if the server on which your website is hosted supports the exact same PHP version as the one that you used while developing the website.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Hosting
Our hosting servers support several versions of PHP, so your sites will work flawlessly no matter if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We acknowledge the fact that an old site doesn’t necessarily equal an insecure one as you may have implemented lots of modifications to its source code. This is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can decide which version will be active for your account. The version can be changed with one single click of the mouse via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will be applied right away. In case you want to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each of your domain names at the same time.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Even in case your websites were built with an older PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support multiple versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each one of them can be activated for your account with just one click of the mouse from our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. In addition to 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, which has already been abandoned by the great majority of web hosting companies, but we consider that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a website that took years to build, as older scripting language syntax doesn’t necessarily imply safety holes. Quite the opposite, a correctly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than a wrongly maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also offer you the opportunity to choose a different PHP version for each individual site within your account.
