PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly called PHP, is a famous open-source server-side coding language, which is used to create dynamic websites with interactive components like message boards, e-teaching sites or community sites. In contrast to static HTML-based sites, a PHP-driven website can show different web content to each user under the exact same page URL. As PHP-based Internet applications can be managed through a Control Panel tool, which you can log in to using any browser, you won’t have to possess any coding knowledge or practical experience in order to run a PHP-driven website. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the world are built using PHP is an indication of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You must only check whether the web server on which your site is hosted supports the exact same PHP version as the one that you used whilst creating the site.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Web Hosting
We have made a conscious decision not to prevent our current and potential clients from choosing what PHP version their sites will be using, which goes to say that if you buy a web hosting plan from us, you’ll be able to select between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the account as a whole, but also for each individual domain hosted by you. This can be done with only one click of the mouse through our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel via which all hosting accounts are administered, so you will not need any technical or programming capabilities. You will be able to manage sites based on both old and new PHP scripts without having to cope with any hindrances, so if you decide to leave your current web hosting company and switch over to us, you can be sure that all the websites that you have created throughout the years will continue to run correctly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Even in case your sites 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 multiple versions running simultaneously on our servers and each of them can be activated for your account with no more than one click from our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Aside from the most recent 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 majority of hosting companies, but we hold that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a site that took years to create, as older scripting language syntax doesn’t always imply safety weaknesses. Quite the opposite, a correctly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than a mismaintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we will also offer you the opportunity to specify a different version of PHP for each individual site within the account.
