PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also called PHP, is a popular multiparadigm programming language, which is used to set up dynamic sites with interactive elements like Internet forums, e-learning websites or community portals. In contrast with static HTML websites, a PHP website can display unique content to each user under the same URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based web apps can be managed through one single Control Panel, which you can access using any Internet browser, you won’t need any web design skills or previous experience to administer a PHP site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the world are built with PHP is an indication of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You must only confirm whether the server on which your website 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 Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers support several PHP versions, which goes to say that your sites will work correctly even if your PHP scripts are out of date. We acknowledge the fact that an old website doesn’t invariably suggest an insecure one as you may have implemented lots of modifications to its source code. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can decide which one will be active for your shared web hosting account. You can change the version with only one single click of the mouse inside your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will take effect instantaneously. In case you wish to run both newer and older scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domain names at the same time.

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

Even if your websites were built with an older version of PHP, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support several versions running simultaneously on our servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with just a click through our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Apart from the latest 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, which has already been abandoned by the vast majority of web hosting vendors, but we strongly think that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a website that took several years to create, since older script language syntax does not invariably equal security weaknesses. Just the opposite, a well-maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a poorly maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also offer you the possibility to specify a different version of PHP for each website within your account.
