PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, better known as PHP, is a famous curly-brace programming language, which can be used to create dynamic sites with interactive components such as discussion forums, online teaching websites or community portals. Unlike static HTML websites, a PHP-powered site can show unique web content to each user under the same exact page URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based Internet applications can be managed via a single Control Panel tool, which you can sign onto using any Internet browser, you will not need any coding abilities or previous experience whatsoever to maintain a PHP site. The fact that 100s of millions of websites worldwide are built using PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only have to check whether the web server on which your site is hosted supports the same exact version of PHP as the one that you used while building the website.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Hosting
In case you buy a cloud hosting plan from us, you will never need to wonder whether or not your websites are compatible with the web hosting platform, as multiple versions of PHP are available on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to select PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one click and in case you need to change the version, the new settings will be applied instantaneously. In this way, many years of work on sites created with an older version won’t go down the tube. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which means that you can use older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most hosting companies on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two versions of PHP. Unlike them, we think that you should be the one to choose the version that your very own websites will be using.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Even if your websites were created with an earlier version of PHP, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support several versions running at the same time on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with just one click from our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Other than the most recent 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 the majority of web hosting providers, but we strongly trust that you should not be forced to modify a site that took years to build, as older script language syntax does not invariably suggest security loopholes. Just the opposite, a correctly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than a wrongly maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we will also offer you the possibility to set a different version of PHP for each individual site within the account.
