PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, commonly referred to as PHP, is a popular server-side scripting language, which can be used to create dynamic websites with interactive elements like message boards, online teaching sites or social networks. In stark contrast with static HTML websites, a PHP-powered site can display unique web content to each visitor under the very same URL. Given the fact that PHP-based apps can be managed via a Control Panel, which you can log on to from any online browser, you will not need to possess any web development abilities or previous experience to administer a PHP site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites worldwide are created using PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You only need to confirm whether the web server on which your site is hosted supports the exact same PHP version as the one that you used while developing the website.

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

Our shared website hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which implies that your websites will run without any problem even if your scripts are outdated. We accept the fact that an old website doesn’t always equal a vulnerable one as you may have carried out a lot of modifications to its code. This is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can select which version will be active for your shared web hosting account. The version can be changed with one mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied instantaneously. If you’d like to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even an option to use a different version of PHP for each domain of yours simultaneously.

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

If you’ve got a site created using a previous version of PHP and you have put time and effort into setting it up, patching security holes and inserting content, you will need to find a hosting service that can support it, since the great majority of web hosts these days offer support only for the most recently launched version of PHP and remove the older ones. We, however, have decided to allow you to choose the exact version that your websites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which suggests that you’ll be able to run both newer and older scripts without losing any manual settings or wasting time and efforts struggling to make your websites compatible with the hosting environment. You can change the current version from the Hepsia Control Panel and such a change will affect the whole semi-dedicated server account, but you will also have the ability to select a different PHP version for each individual website that you host in your account by using an .htaccess config file.
