PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also known as PHP, is a popular multiparadigm programming language, which is used to develop dynamic sites with interactive features like forums, e-learning sites or social networks. In stark contrast with static HTML-based sites, a PHP website can show unique web content to each user under the same exact URL. Since PHP-based web apps can be managed via a single Control Panel, which you can sign in to using any online browser, you won’t have to possess any web development experience or practical experience whatsoever to run a PHP-powered website. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites around the world are built using PHP is an indication of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You should only check whether the server on which your site is hosted supports the same exact PHP version as the one that you used while setting up the website.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Hosting
In case you order a hosting plan from our company, you’ll never have to speculate about whether or not your sites are compatible with the web hosting environment, since multiple PHP versions are activated on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to select PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with just one click of the mouse and if you wish to change the current version, the update will be applied momentarily. In this way, years of work on sites built with an older version will not go down the tube. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which suggests that you can use newer and older scripts at the same time. Most hosting providers on the market offer one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In contrast to them, we strongly deem that you should be the one to choose the version that your very own sites will use.
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, since we support different versions running simultaneously on our servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with just one click through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. Apart from 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 dropped by the majority of web hosts, but we are strongly convinced that you should not be forced to modify a site that took several years to create, as older programming language syntax does not always imply security vulnerabilities. On the contrary, a properly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an unmaintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we will also provide you with the possibility to pick a different version for each site within the account.
