PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, otherwise known as PHP, is a famous open-source programming language, which can be used to create dynamic websites with interactive elements like forums, e-teaching websites or social networking sites. In contrast to static HTML websites, a PHP-powered site can show different web content to each visitor under the exact same URL. Due to the fact that PHP-based Internet apps can be managed through one Control Panel tool, which you can log onto from any browser, you won’t need to have any web development experience or past experience whatsoever in order to run a PHP-powered website. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites around the globe are created in PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You must only check whether the web server on which your site is hosted supports the exact same PHP version as the one that you used whilst building the website.

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

In case you get a cloud website hosting package from our company, you will never need to worry about whether or not your websites are compatible with the web hosting environment, since multiple versions of PHP are installed on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with just one click of the mouse and if you’d like to change the current version, the update will take effect instantaneously. In this way, many years of work on sites built with an older version of PHP won’t go down the drain. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different PHP version for each domain name hosted in your account, which means that you can use older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting companies on the market offer one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In contrast to them, we hold that you should be the one to choose the version that your own websites will be using.

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

In case you have a site created using a previous version of PHP and you have donated time and energy into developing it, filling security gaps and entering web page content, you will need a web hosting service that can support it, as most hosting companies today support only the latest version of PHP and drop the older versions. We, however, have decided to permit you to pick the exact version that your websites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which goes to say that you will be able to use both newer and older scripts without losing any manual settings or wasting time trying to make your sites compatible with the hosting environment. The version can be changed through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will apply to the whole semi-dedicated account, but you will also have the ability to select a different version of PHP for each single site that you host in your account by means of an .htaccess file.
