PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, commonly referred to as PHP, is a popular general-purpose server-side scripting language, which can be used to create dynamic sites with interactive elements like bulletin boards, e-teaching sites or community portals. In comparison with static HTML sites, a PHP-driven website can serve different content to each visitor under the very same page URL. Because PHP-based web apps can be managed via one single Control Panel, which you can sign onto from any Internet browser, you will not need to possess any web design abilities or past experience whatsoever to administer a PHP-powered site. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites worldwide are built using PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You only have to verify that the server on which your website is hosted supports the same exact PHP version as the one that you used whilst building the site.

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

In case you get a shared hosting package from us, you will never have to wonder whether your sites are compatible with the hosting environment, as several versions of PHP are activated on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to select PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with just one single mouse click and in case you wish to change the version, the update will take effect momentarily. Thus, several years of work on sites built with an older version of PHP will not be wasted. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different PHP version for each domain name hosted in your account, which implies that you can use newer and older scripts at the same time. Most web hosting providers on the market offer one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In stark contrast with them, we strongly deem that you should be the one to pick the version that will be used by your very own sites.

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

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support multiple versions of PHP, which suggests that you’ll be able to use all the applications that you have created throughout the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with every semi-dedicated server account, will enable you to set the version that you need with a single mouse click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. If you wish to host multiple sites under one and the same account and they have special requirements with reference to the hosting platform, you’ll be able to choose a different version for each of them regardless of which version has been enabled for the account as a whole. This is accomplishable owing to our custom-built cloud platform, which allows us to run several versions of PHP all at the same time. In stark comparison, the vast majority of web hosting vendors typically offer one, sometimes two versions.
