PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also known as PHP, is a famous programming language, which is used to set up dynamic sites with interactive components such as bulletin boards, e-learning websites or community portals. Unlike static HTML sites, a PHP-powered website can display different web content to each user under the same exact page URL. Since PHP-based web-based apps can be managed through one Control Panel, which you can log on to from any online browser, you will not need to have any web development skills or previous experience in order to administer a PHP website. The fact that 100s of millions of websites all over the world are created with PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only have to make sure that the web server where you host your website supports the same exact version of PHP as the one that you used whilst setting up the website.

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

With our cloud web hosting plans, you will be able to pick which PHP version will be enabled for your shared web hosting account, as several versions are installed on our servers. With as little as one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is unveiled in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier versions. In this way, you will be able to host all the sites that you’ve built throughout the years. In stark contrast to a lot of other hosting suppliers, we won’t force you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it is insecure as you may have implemented modifications to its source code to repair security holes. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to set a different version of PHP for each website hosted in your hosting account.

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

Even in case 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 multiple versions running simultaneously on our servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with just one click of the mouse from our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. Besides the newest PHP 8, we also support 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 great majority of hosting providers, but we strongly believe that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a site that took several years to create, as older script language syntax does not always equal security vulnerabilities. Quite the opposite, a well-maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than a badly maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also offer you the opportunity to select a different PHP version for each website within your account.
