PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also referred to as PHP, is a popular object-oriented programming language, which is used to set up dynamic websites with interactive components such as forums, e-teaching portals or social networking websites. Unlike static HTML websites, a PHP-driven website can display unique web content to each user under the same exact URL. Due to the fact that PHP-based Internet apps can be managed through one Control Panel tool, which you can log into from any online browser, you will not need any web development know-how or practical experience to administer a PHP site. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites all over the globe are built with PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only ought to check whether the web server where you host your site supports the exact same version of PHP as the one that you used whilst building the website.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting servers support several versions of PHP, so your sites will work faultlessly no matter if your PHP scripts are out of date. We acknowledge the fact that an old site does not inevitably suggest an insecure one as you may have done plenty of modifications to its code. This is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can decide which one will be active for your hosting account. The version can be changed with just one click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied instantly. In case you wish to run both newer and older scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each domain of yours at the same time.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Even in case your websites were built with an earlier version of PHP, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support different versions running at the same time on our servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with no more than one click of the mouse through our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Other than the latest PHP 8, we also offer support for 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 abandoned by the majority of web hosting companies, but we strongly deem that you should not be compelled to modify a website that took several years to build, since older scripting language syntax does not automatically equal safety holes. Just the opposite, a properly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than an incorrectly maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we will also provide you with the possibility to select a different PHP version for each individual site within the account.
