PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly known as PHP, is a famous server-side scripting language, which can be used to build dynamic websites with interactive components such as message boards, e-teaching portals or community sites. In contrast to static HTML websites, a PHP-driven website can show unique content to each user under the exact same URL. Due to the fact that PHP-based applications can be managed via a single Control Panel tool, which you can sign into from any web browser, you will not have to possess any coding knowledge or practical experience whatsoever in order to run a PHP-driven site. The fact that 100s of millions of websites all over the globe are built using PHP is an indication of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only have to ensure that the server on which your website is hosted supports the same exact PHP version as the one that you used whilst setting up the website.

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

Our cloud website hosting servers support different versions of PHP, so your websites will work flawlessly no matter if your scripts are out of date. We acknowledge the fact that an old website doesn’t necessarily equal an insecure one as you may have implemented lots of modifications to its code. That is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can pick which version will be enabled for your shared web hosting account. The version can be changed with just one single mouse click within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will be applied momentarily. In case you would like to run both older and newer scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each of your domain names simultaneously.

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

In case you have a website created in an older version of PHP and you have put time and energy toward setting it up, filling safety breaches and embedding content, you’ll need to find a web hosting service that can support it, since the majority of hosting providers these days offer support only for the most recently launched version of PHP and abandon the older versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you pick the exact version that your websites need. Our Linux semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which means that you will be able to run both newer and older scripts without losing any manual modifications or misspending time and effort striving to make your websites compatible with the hosting environment. You can change the version via the Hepsia Control Panel and such a change will apply to the entire account, but you will also have the ability to specify a different version of PHP for each individual site hosted in your account using an .htaccess configuration file.
