PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly referred to as PHP, is a popular interpreted programming language, which is used to develop dynamic sites with interactive components such as discussion boards, school websites or community sites. In contrast with static HTML-based websites, a PHP-powered website can display different content to each user under the same URL. Due to the fact that PHP-based web applications can be managed through one single Control Panel, which you can log on to from any Internet browser, you won’t have to possess any programming knowledge or past experience to maintain a PHP-powered website. The fact that 100s of millions of websites around the globe are created with PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You only ought to confirm whether or not the server on which your website is hosted supports the exact same PHP version as the one that you used while developing the site.

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

We’ve made a conscious decision not to prevent our current and future customers from choosing the PHP version that their websites will use, which suggests that if you buy a cloud website hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to pick between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the hosting account in general, but also for each domain hosted by you. This can be accomplished with just one single mouse click through our custom Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared accounts are managed, which is why you will not need any programming or technical skills. You’ll be able to host websites built with both new and old PHP scripts without having to cope with any problems, so if you would like to drop your present hosting supplier and migrate over to us, you can be sure that all the websites that you have set up through the years will continue to work perfectly.

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

Even if your websites were created with an earlier version of PHP, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support several versions running at the same time on our servers and each of them can be activated for your account with no more than a click of the mouse via our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. Apart from the latest PHP 8, we also offer support for 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 vast majority of web hosting providers, but we feel that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a website that took years to set up, since older script language syntax doesn’t inevitably suggest safety breaches. Quite the opposite, a correctly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than a wrongly maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we will also offer you the opportunity to set a different version for each website within the account.
