PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly known as PHP, is a famous general-purpose server-side programming language, which can be used to build dynamic sites with interactive features such as discussion boards, online learning sites or social networking sites. In contrast with static HTML sites, a PHP-driven website can show different web content to each visitor under the same URL. Due to the fact that PHP-based applications can be managed via a single Control Panel tool, which you can log into using any web browser, you won’t need to possess any web design knowledge or previous experience whatsoever in order to administer a PHP-driven site. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites all over the globe are created with PHP is indicative of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You must only confirm whether or not the server on which your website is hosted supports the very same PHP version as the one that you used whilst building the website.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Web Hosting
We have reached a decision not to restrict our present and potential clients from choosing the PHP version that will be used by their sites, which suggests that in case you order a shared web hosting package from us, you will be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account itself, but also for each individual domain name hosted by you. This can be done with just one single mouse click from our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel via which all hosting accounts are managed, which is why you won’t have to possess any technical or programming expertise. You’ll be able to run websites built with both new and old PHP scripts without having to overcome any hindrances, so if you’d like to drop your present hosting provider and migrate over to us, you can be sure that all the websites that you’ve developed throughout the years will continue to work impeccably.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Even in case your websites were created with an earlier PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support several versions running at the same time on our servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with no more than a click from our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Other than the latest PHP 8, we also support 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 vendors, but we strongly believe that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a website that took several years to set up, since older scripting language syntax doesn’t invariably suggest security vulnerabilities. Quite the opposite, a rightly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an incorrectly maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also provide you with the possibility to choose a different version of PHP for each individual site within your account.
