PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly referred to as PHP, is a famous object-oriented programming language, which can be used to develop dynamic websites with interactive components like bulletin boards, e-teaching portals or social networking sites. In stark contrast to static HTML websites, a PHP website can show different content to each user under the exact same page URL. Given the fact that PHP-based web apps can be managed through a single Control Panel tool, which you can log onto using any online browser, you won’t need to have any web design abilities or past experience in order to maintain a PHP site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the world are created using PHP is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You only need to check whether or not the server where you host your website supports the exact same version of PHP as the one that you used while building the site.

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

If you get a website hosting package from our company, you will never need to ponder on whether your websites are compatible with the hosting platform, since we offer support for multiple versions of PHP for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to select PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one single click of the mouse and in case you want to change the current version, the update will be applied instantly. In this way, several years of work on websites built with an older version won’t be lost. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different PHP version for each domain name hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can use older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting companies on the marketplace offer support for one, sometimes for two versions of PHP. In contrast with them, we strongly believe that you should be the one to select the version that will be used by your own sites.

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

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages support multiple versions of PHP, so you will be able to run all the web applications that you’ve created throughout the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with every semi-dedicated server account, will permit you to set the required version with a single click. You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you wish to host multiple websites under the exact same account and they have distinct requirements as to the web hosting environment, you will be able to specify a different version for each of them regardless of which version has been enabled for the account as a whole. That’s possible owing to our in-house created cloud hosting platform, which allows us to run multiple PHP versions at once. By contrast, most web hosting vendors normally offer one, in extremely rare cases – two versions.
