PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, usually called PHP, is a popular interpreted programming language, which can be used to create dynamic websites with interactive elements like forums, school websites or social networks. In contrast with static HTML-based websites, a PHP website can serve unique content to each visitor under the same exact URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based Internet applications can be managed via one Control Panel tool, which you can access using any online browser, you won’t need any computer programming know-how or past experience whatsoever to administer a PHP website. The fact that 100s of millions of sites all over the world are based on PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You should only check whether or not the server where you host your website supports the same exact version of PHP as the one that you used while building the site.

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

If you buy a website hosting package from us, you’ll never have to speculate whether your websites are compatible with the web hosting platform, as multiple PHP versions are enabled on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to select PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one single click of the mouse and in case you wish to change the version, the new settings will take effect straight away. In this way, many years of work on websites created with an older PHP version will not be lost. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can run older and newer scripts at the same time. Most hosting companies on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two PHP versions. In contrast to them, we strongly deem that you should be the one to choose the version that your very own websites will use.

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

Even in case your websites were built with an older version of PHP, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support different versions running at the same time on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be activated for your account with just a click of the mouse from our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Besides the latest PHP 8, we also offer 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 hold that you should not be compelled to modify a site that took years to create, as older programming language syntax doesn’t invariably mean safety vulnerabilities. Just the opposite, a properly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than an incorrectly maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also offer you the opportunity to select a different version for each single website within your account.
