PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, better known as PHP, is a famous open-source server-side coding language, which is used to set up dynamic websites with interactive components such as message boards, online learning sites or community sites. In comparison with static HTML sites, a PHP-powered site can display unique web content to each visitor under the same page URL. Because of the fact that PHP-based apps can be managed through a Control Panel tool, which you can sign on to from any Internet browser, you won’t have to possess any computer programming abilities or previous experience whatsoever to administer a PHP site. The fact that hundreds 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 need to confirm whether or not the web server where you host your site supports the same version of PHP as the one that you used while setting up the site.

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

We have made a decision not to prevent our present and future customers from choosing the PHP version that will be used by their sites, which implies that in case you buy a shared web hosting plan from our company, you’ll be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the hosting account itself, but also for each domain name hosted by you. This can be accomplished with only one mouse click through our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel via which all web hosting accounts are managed, so you won’t need any technical or coding capabilities. You will be able to manage sites built with both old and new PHP scripts without having to cope with any hindrances, so if you decide to abandon your current web hosting supplier and migrate over to us, you can rest assured that all the sites that you’ve built over the years will continue to work faultlessly.

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

Even if your websites were created with an earlier PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support different versions running at the same time on our semi-dedicated servers and each one of them can be activated for your account with no more than one click of the mouse from our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Apart from the newest 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. The latter has already been abandoned by most web hosting providers, but we strongly believe that you should not be forced to modify a website that took several years to build, as older programming language syntax does not always equal safety holes. Quite the opposite, a well-maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than an improperly maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also offer you the possibility to select a different version of PHP for each single site within the account.
