PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also referred to as PHP, is a popular general-purpose server-side scripting language, which can be used to develop dynamic websites with interactive components such as bulletin boards, online learning sites or community portals. Unlike static HTML-based sites, a PHP website can display different web content to each user under the very same URL. Due to the fact that PHP-based web applications can be managed via a single Control Panel tool, which you can log in to using any web browser, you will not have to possess any web development knowledge or prior experience whatsoever in order to administer a PHP site. The fact that 100s of millions of websites all over the world are built using PHP is an indication of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You must only verify that the web server on which your site is hosted supports the same PHP version as the one that you used while building the website.

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

In case you order a cloud website hosting plan from us, you’ll never need to ponder on whether or not your websites are compatible with the hosting platform, since different PHP versions are available on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with just one mouse click and if you’d like to change the version, the new settings will take effect right away. Thus, years of work on sites built with an older version of PHP won’t go down the tube. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different PHP version for each domain name hosted in your account, so you can use older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting providers on the marketplace offer support for one, sometimes for two versions of PHP. In stark contrast with them, we strongly feel that you should be the one to select the version that your very own sites will be using.

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

If you’ve got a site built with an older PHP version and you have put time and effort towards setting it up, plugging security loopholes and entering web page content, you’ll need a hosting service that can support it, since the majority of web hosting providers these days support only the most recently published version of PHP and drop the older ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to allow you to select the exact version that your sites need. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which means that you’ll be able to use both older and newer scripts without losing any manual settings or wasting time and efforts attempting to make your sites compatible with the hosting platform. You can change the version from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will apply to the entire semi-dedicated account, but you’ll also have the ability to pick a different version for each website hosted in your account by means of an .htaccess configuration file.
