PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, typically called PHP, is a famous web programming language, which is used to set up dynamic websites with interactive features such as discussion boards, online learning websites or social networking websites. In contrast to static HTML websites, a PHP website can serve different web content to each user under the same exact URL. Since PHP-based web applications can be managed via a Control Panel tool, which you can access using any online browser, you won’t have to possess any web development expertise or prior experience whatsoever to administer a PHP-powered website. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the globe are built on PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You only need to make certain that the server on which your site is hosted supports the same exact PHP version as the one that you used whilst setting up the website.

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

With our Linux shared hosting, you will be able to select the PHP version that will be active for your shared account, since several versions are supported on our servers. With just one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is published in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous versions. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you have created throughout the years. In stark contrast to a lot of other hosting providers, we won’t force you to update such websites, as a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have done modifications to its code to patch safety loopholes. For your convenience’s sake, you’ll even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each individual website hosted in your shared hosting account.

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

In case you’ve got a site built using a previous version of PHP and you’ve devoted time and energy into setting it up, plugging security gaps and appending content, you will need a web hosting service that can support it, since most hosting suppliers nowadays offer support only for the most recently launched PHP version and remove the previous ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to allow you to choose the version that your very own websites need. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which suggests that you will be able to run both older and newer scripts without forfeiting any manual settings or wasting time and efforts struggling to make your sites compatible with the hosting environment. You can change the version through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will affect the whole semi-dedicated server account, but you’ll also have the ability to select a different version for each website hosted in your account by using an .htaccess config file.
