PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, usually called PHP, is a popular imperative programming language, which can be used to create dynamic sites with interactive features like bulletin boards, e-teaching sites or social networking sites. In contrast with static HTML-based websites, a PHP site can show different web content to each visitor under the exact same URL. As PHP-based web-based applications can be managed through a single Control Panel tool, which you can sign on to using any online browser, you won’t need any computer programming abilities or prior experience to maintain a PHP-driven site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the globe are created with PHP is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You must only make sure that the server on which your website is hosted supports the exact same version of PHP as the one that you used while creating the site.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which implies that your websites will work without any problem no matter if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We recognize the fact that an old website does not always suggest an insecure one as you may have carried out a lot of code modifications. That is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can pick which version will be enabled for your shared hosting account. The version can be changed with only one single click of the mouse within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will be applied instantly. If you wish to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each domain name of yours simultaneously.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’ve got a website built on a previous version of PHP and you’ve dedicated time and efforts on developing it, fixing security gaps and appending content, you will need a hosting service that can support it, as the majority of web hosts nowadays offer support only for the most recent PHP version and give up the previous ones. We, however, have decided to permit you to choose the exact version that your websites need. Our Linux semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which goes to say that you’ll be able to run both older and newer scripts without forfeiting any custom tweaks or wasting time and efforts trying to make your websites compatible with the web hosting platform. You can change the version through the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will affect the entire account, but you’ll also be able to pick a different version for each individual website hosted in your account using an .htaccess file.
