PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, otherwise referred to as PHP, is a popular open-source server-side coding language, which can be used to create dynamic websites with interactive features like discussion forums, online learning portals or social networking sites. In stark contrast with static HTML-based websites, a PHP-powered site can display different web content to each user under the exact same page URL. Since PHP-based web-based applications can be managed through a Control Panel, which you can sign on to using any browser, you won’t need any programming experience or past experience to administer a PHP-driven website. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites around the globe are created in PHP is indicative of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only need to verify that the server where you host your website supports the exact 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 Cloud Hosting

With our Linux cloud packages, you’ll be able to choose which PHP version will be active for your account, since we offer support for several versions. With just one click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is unveiled in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the older ones. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you’ve built over the years. In contrast with lots of other web hosting vendors, we will not compel you to update such websites, as a script may be out of date, but this does not necessarily mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have tweaked its code to plug safety loopholes. For your convenience, you will even be able to specify a different PHP version for each site that you host in your web hosting account.

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

Even if your websites were created with an older version of PHP, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support several versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with no more than a click of the mouse from our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. Besides the newest 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 dropped by the great majority of web hosting providers, but we strongly maintain that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a site that took years to develop, as older programming language syntax doesn’t necessarily mean security weaknesses. On the contrary, a rightly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than a mismaintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we’ll also provide you with the possibility to pick a different version of PHP for each website within your account.
