PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, typically called PHP, is a famous open-source scripting language, which is used to develop dynamic websites with interactive components like discussion forums, e-teaching portals or social networking sites. In contrast to static HTML-based websites, a PHP-driven website can show different content to each user under the exact same URL. Due to the fact that PHP-based apps can be managed via one single Control Panel tool, which you can sign on to using any web browser, you won’t have to possess any programming knowledge or prior experience to run a PHP-powered site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the globe are built using PHP is an indication of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only need to verify that the server where you host your site supports the same version of PHP as the one that you used while creating the website.

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

We have reached a decision not to restrict our current and prospective customers from picking what PHP version their websites will be using, which suggests that if you get a shared hosting package from us, you’ll be able to select between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account as a whole, but also for each domain that you host. This can be accomplished with just one single mouse click from our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared accounts are managed, which is why you will not need to have any technical or programming experience. You will be able to host sites based on both new and old scripts without having to cope with any impediments, so if you want to swap your present hosting provider and move over to us, you can rest assured that all the sites that you have set up throughout the years will continue to run faultlessly.

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

In case you’ve got a site created using an earlier PHP version and you’ve devoted time and energy to developing it, patching safety loopholes and embedding web content, you’ll need a web hosting service that can support it, since almost all web hosting suppliers nowadays support only the most recently introduced PHP version and remove the older versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you select the exact version that your own sites require. Our semi-dedicated hosting plans support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which goes to say that you will be able to use both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any customizations or misspending time and efforts striving to make your websites compatible with the web hosting platform. You can change the current version through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will apply to the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you’ll also have the ability to pick a different version of PHP for each site hosted in your account using an .htaccess file.
