PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, commonly called PHP, is a popular programming language, which can be used to create dynamic sites with interactive elements such as forums, e-learning websites or community websites. In comparison to static HTML-based websites, a PHP-powered site can display unique web content to each visitor under the exact same page URL. Since PHP-based web-based apps can be managed through a Control Panel tool, which you can sign on to using any Internet browser, you won’t have to possess any web design expertise or past experience in order to maintain a PHP-powered site. The fact that 100s of millions of websites worldwide are created with PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You only need to verify whether the server where you host your site supports the same PHP version as the one that you used while setting up the website.

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

Our cloud hosting servers support different PHP versions, which suggests that your sites will run flawlessly no matter if your PHP scripts are outdated. We realize that an old site does not automatically equal a vulnerable one as you may have performed plenty of mods to its source code. This is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can choose which version will be enabled for your hosting account. You can change the version with a single click through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will be applied right away. In case you wish to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even an option to use a different version of PHP for each domain of yours simultaneously.

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 semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with no more than a click from our custom Hepsia Control Panel. Besides the most recent 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 vast majority of hosting vendors, but we are strongly convinced that you should not be compelled to modify a website that took years to develop, as older script language syntax doesn’t invariably equal safety holes. Just the opposite, a correctly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a wrongly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we will also provide you with the opportunity to set a different version of PHP for each individual website within your account.
