PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, otherwise called PHP, is a famous general-purpose server-side scripting language, which can be used to develop dynamic websites with interactive elements like discussion forums, online teaching portals or community websites. In stark contrast with static HTML sites, a PHP-powered site can serve unique web content to each visitor under the very same URL. Given the fact that PHP-based Internet apps can be managed through a Control Panel, which you can sign into from any web browser, you won’t have to possess any web design abilities or past experience whatsoever in order to maintain a PHP site. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites around the world are built using PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only need to check if the server where you host your website supports the very same PHP version as the one that you used while creating the website.

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

With our Linux web hosting packages, you’ll be able to pick which PHP version will be enabled for your web hosting account, as multiple versions are available on our servers. With only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is launched in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the previous versions. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you have developed throughout the years. In stark contrast with many other web hosts, we won’t compel you to update such websites, as a script may be out of date, but this does not automatically mean that it is vulnerable since you may have carried out modifications to its code to plug safety holes. For your convenience, you will even be able to choose a different PHP version for each individual website that you host in your web hosting account.

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

Even if your websites were created with an earlier version of PHP, 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 of them can be enabled for your account with just one click through our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. Other than the latest PHP 8, we also offer 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 are convinced that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a website that took several years to develop, since older scripting language syntax doesn’t automatically imply security weaknesses. Just the opposite, a properly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a mismaintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we will also provide you with the opportunity to select a different version of PHP for each individual site within the account.
