PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, commonly called PHP, is a popular server-side programming language, which can be used to build dynamic sites with interactive features like bulletin boards, e-teaching sites or social networking sites. In contrast with static HTML-based sites, a PHP-driven site can serve different web content to each user under the same exact page URL. As PHP-based Internet applications can be managed via one single Control Panel, which you can access from any browser, you will not need any computer programming capabilities or past experience whatsoever in order to run a PHP website. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites worldwide are based on PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You should only verify whether the server where you host your site supports the same exact PHP version as the one that you used while creating the site.

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

We’ve decided not to restrict our current and prospective customers from selecting what PHP version will be used by their websites, which suggests that if you get a cloud hosting package from our company, you will be able to select between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the account as a whole, but also for each single domain hosted by you. This can be done with just one mouse click from our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all shared hosting accounts are administered, which is the reason why you won’t need to possess any programming or technical know-how. You’ll be able to manage websites based on both old and new scripts without any problem, so if you’d like to abandon your present web hosting provider and migrate over to us, you can be sure that all the sites that you have built through the years will continue to run properly.

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

In case you have a site created with a previous version of PHP and you have committed time and energy toward developing it, repairing safety holes and appending web content, you’ll need to find a web hosting service that can support it, since the great majority of web hosting suppliers nowadays offer only the most recently published PHP version and remove the earlier versions. We, however, have decided to allow you to pick the exact version that your websites need. Our semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which implies that you will be able to use both newer and older scripts without losing any custom modifications or frittering away time and effort trying to make your websites compatible with the web hosting environment. The current version can be changed from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will affect the whole account, but you’ll also have the ability to select a different version of PHP for each individual website that you host in your account by means of an .htaccess config file.
