PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly referred to as PHP, is a popular dynamic programming language, which can be used to create dynamic sites with interactive features like Internet forums, e-learning websites or community sites. In contrast to static HTML-based websites, a PHP-powered site can serve different content to each visitor under the same exact page URL. Because PHP-based web-based applications can be managed via a single Control Panel, which you can access using any online browser, you will not need any computer programming knowledge or previous experience whatsoever to maintain a PHP site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites all over the world are built with PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You must only check if the server on which your website is hosted supports the very same PHP version as the one that you used whilst developing the site.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which goes to say that your sites will work without any problem even if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We realize that an old site does not always suggest a vulnerable one as you may have done plenty of mods to its code. This 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 account. The version can be changed with only one click in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will be applied instantly. In case you’d like to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even an option to use a different version of PHP for each of your domains at the same time.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’ve got a site created with an older version of PHP and you have put time and energy towards developing it, patching security breaches and publishing content, you will need a web hosting service that can support it, as almost all hosting providers today offer only the most recently launched version of PHP and drop the older versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you pick the exact version that your websites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which implies that you’ll be able to use both older and newer scripts without forfeiting any custom settings or frittering away time trying to make your websites compatible with the web hosting platform. You can change the current version from 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 choose a different version for each site that you host in your account by using an .htaccess file.
