PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, typically called PHP, is a famous general-purpose programming language, which is used to develop dynamic websites with interactive features such as Internet forums, e-teaching websites or community portals. In stark contrast to static HTML sites, a PHP-powered site can serve different content to each visitor under the exact same page URL. Due to the fact that PHP-based web-based apps can be managed through a Control Panel, which you can sign in to using any online browser, you won’t need to possess any programming expertise or practical experience in order to maintain a PHP-driven site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the globe are created using PHP is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You must only verify that the web server on which your website is hosted supports the same exact PHP version as the one that you used while developing the site.

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

Our website hosting servers support several versions of PHP, so your sites will work flawlessly no matter if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We recognize the fact that an old site does not necessarily imply an insecure one as you may have done 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 select which one will be active for your web hosting account. The version can be changed with just one single click through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will take effect instantly. If you would like to run both newer and older scripts, there is even an option to use a different version of PHP for each domain name of yours at the same time.

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

Even if your websites 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 one of them can be enabled for your account with no more than a click through our custom Hepsia Control Panel. In addition to 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, which has already been dropped by the majority of hosting suppliers, but we think that you should not be compelled to modify a website that took years to set up, since older scripting language syntax doesn’t necessarily equal safety weaknesses. Just the opposite, a properly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a non-maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we’ll also give you the possibility to set a different version of PHP for each single site within the account.
