PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, typically called PHP, is a popular general-purpose web programming language, which is used to set up dynamic sites with interactive features such as discussion forums, online teaching portals or community sites. In contrast to static HTML sites, a PHP-driven website can show unique content to each user under the very same URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based web apps can be managed through a single Control Panel tool, which you can log in to using any web browser, you won’t need to have any web design abilities or previous experience in order to run a PHP website. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the globe are built with PHP is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You only have to check whether or not the server where you host your website supports the same PHP version as the one that you used whilst setting up the site.

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

With our shared website hosting plans, you’ll be able to choose the PHP version that will be active for your web hosting account, as we offer support for different versions. With just one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is released in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. Thus, you will be able to host all the websites that you have set up over the years. Unlike lots of other companies, we will not force you to update such websites, because a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it’s vulnerable since you may have tweaked its code to patch safety gaps. For your convenience’s sake, you will even be able to select a different PHP version for each individual website hosted in your web hosting account.

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

You can change the version both for a single site and for the whole account and the change will be applied in only a couple of minutes. With our hosting services, you can be certain that you won’t ever bump into any site compatibility predicaments.
