PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, otherwise called PHP, is a famous programming language, which is used to create dynamic sites with interactive elements like bulletin boards, e-teaching websites or community portals. Unlike static HTML sites, a PHP-powered site can show different content to each user under the very same page URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based Internet applications can be managed through a Control Panel tool, which you can log into using any online browser, you won’t need to have any programming expertise or past experience in order to run a PHP-powered site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the globe are based on PHP is indicative of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only have to make certain that the web server on which your website is hosted supports the same exact PHP version as the one that you used while setting up the site.

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

If you get a shared hosting plan from our company, you’ll never need to ask yourself if your sites are compatible with the hosting platform, since multiple versions of PHP are supported on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit 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 version, the new settings will take effect immediately. In this way, many years of work on websites built with an older version of PHP won’t be wasted. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which suggests that you can use older and newer scripts at the same time. Most web hosting providers on the market support one, sometimes two versions of PHP. Unlike them, we strongly consider that you should be the one to pick the version that your very own sites will be using.

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

We strongly believe that years spent developing a website shouldn’t be lost, which goes to say that in case you purchase a semi-dedicated server from our company, you’ll be able to run any script, no matter if it’s new or old. In stark contrast with a lot of web hosting providers, we support several different PHP versions on our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only have the ability to activate the required version from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you will also have the opportunity to specify a different PHP version for each individual website. This can be done simply by placing an .htaccess file within the root folder of the given site. You can change the version either for a single site or for the account itself and the change will take effect in only several minutes. With our web hosting services, you can rest assured that you will never experience any website compatibility issues.
