PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also referred to as PHP, is a famous open-source server-side coding language, which is used to set up dynamic sites with interactive components such as forums, online learning websites or community sites. In stark contrast with static HTML websites, a PHP website can show unique content to each visitor under the very same page URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based web-based apps can be managed through one Control Panel, which you can access using any browser, you won’t need to have any web design skills or previous experience in order to run a PHP-driven site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites all over the world are based on PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You only ought to check if the web server on which your site is hosted supports the exact same version of PHP as the one that you used while building the website.

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

We have made a conscious decision not to prevent our present and potential customers from picking the PHP version that will be used by their websites, which means that in case you get a cloud hosting plan from our company, you will be able to select between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account itself, but also for each single domain name that you host. This can be done with only one single click from our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all shared hosting accounts are administered, which is the reason why you will not need to have any coding or technical experience. You will be able to manage sites built with both new and old PHP scripts without having to overcome any hindrances, so if you decide to leave your present web hosting company and migrate over to us, you can be certain that all the websites that you have developed over the years will continue to run flawlessly.

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

Even if your sites were built with an older version of PHP, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support different versions running at the same time on our servers and each one of them can be activated for your account with just a click via our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Besides the newest 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. The latter has already been abandoned by most hosting vendors, but we strongly deem that you should not be compelled to modify a site that took years to set up, since older programming language syntax does not invariably mean security loopholes. Quite the opposite, a correctly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than a wrongly maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we will also give you the opportunity to pick a different version for each single website within your account.
