PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, otherwise known as PHP, is a popular server-side programming language, which can be used to develop dynamic websites with interactive elements like Internet forums, e-learning websites or social networks. In stark contrast with static HTML websites, a PHP-driven website can display unique web content to each user under the same exact URL. Given the fact that PHP-based web-based applications can be managed via one single Control Panel tool, which you can sign in to using any Internet browser, you will not need to possess any web design skills or practical experience to administer a PHP-powered website. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the globe are based on PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only need to check whether or not the web server on which your website is hosted supports the same PHP version as the one that you used while developing the website.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Website Hosting
With our Linux website hosting, you will be able to pick the version of PHP that will be enabled for your shared account, since multiple versions are supported on our servers. With just one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is unveiled in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the older ones. In this way, you will be able to host all the websites that you’ve developed over the years. In stark contrast with many other web hosting suppliers, we won’t compel you to update such sites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it’s insecure since you may have implemented modifications to its code to fill security breaches. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to choose a different PHP version for each website that you host in your web hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you’ve got a site created using an earlier PHP version and you have dedicated time and efforts toward setting it up, repairing safety holes and inserting web page content, you’ll need a hosting service that can support it, as the majority of hosting providers these days offer only the most recently published PHP version and abandon the earlier ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to allow you to pick the version that your very own websites need. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which means that you’ll be able to run both older and newer scripts without forfeiting any customizations or misspending time and efforts attempting to make your websites compatible with the hosting platform. The current version can be changed through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will apply to the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you will also be able to pick a different version for each single site that you host in your account using an .htaccess config file.
