PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, usually referred to as PHP, is a popular open-source scripting language, which is used to build dynamic sites with interactive elements such as discussion boards, online learning sites or community websites. Unlike static HTML-based websites, a PHP-powered site can display different content to each visitor under the same URL. Given the fact that PHP-based Internet apps can be managed via a Control Panel, which you can sign into using any online browser, you will not have to possess any coding know-how or prior experience in order to maintain a PHP website. The fact that 100s of millions of websites all over the world are created in PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only need to confirm whether or not the server on which your website is hosted supports the same exact PHP version as the one that you used while creating the website.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Website Hosting
With our Linux shared website hosting service
, you will be able to choose the version of PHP that will be enabled for your web hosting account, as several versions are activated on our servers. With as little as one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is published in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you have developed over the years. In contrast with many other web hosting suppliers, we won’t force you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it is insecure since you may have tweaked its code to plug security holes. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to set a different PHP version for each site that you host in your hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers
support multiple versions of PHP, which implies that you will be able to use all the apps that you have built throughout the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with every single semi-dedicated server account, will allow you to enable the version that you need with one click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. If you wish to host multiple websites in the same account and they have different requirements for the web hosting environment, you will be able to choose a different version for each of them irrespective of which version is selected for the account itself. This is accomplishable thanks to our in-house created cloud web hosting platform, which permits us to run several versions of PHP all at once. In stark comparison, the majority of hosting providers usually support one, in extremely rare cases – two versions.
