PHP, which is an acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most widely used multiparadigm programming languages out there. Any website or app built using PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language truly universal and it isn’t really that surprising that there are actually several million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it permits you to develop a dynamic serving site with a myriad of different features. A PHP-based community web portal, for instance, will display different content to each visitor despite the fact that the page URL will not change. In comparison, HTML-based websites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Like any other software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used whilst developing a certain website must be activated on the web server in order for the site to work properly.

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

We have made a conscious decision not to prevent our current and potential customers from picking the PHP version that their websites will use, which means that if you buy a shared hosting package from our company, you will be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account as a whole, but also for each single domain hosted by you. This can be done with only one single click of the mouse through our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all hosting accounts are managed, which is the reason why you won’t have to possess any technical or coding know-how. You’ll be able to manage websites built with both old and new PHP-based scripts without having to deal with any complications, so if you’d like to drop your current web hosting services provider and switch over to us, you can be sure that all the sites that you’ve developed over the years will continue to run flawlessly.

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

Even if your sites were built with an older version of PHP, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support different versions running simultaneously on our servers and each one of them can be activated for your account with no more than one click through our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Other than the newest PHP 8, we also support 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, which has already been abandoned by the vast majority of hosting companies, but we strongly reckon that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a site that took several years to develop, since older script language syntax does not necessarily mean safety flaws. Quite the opposite, a correctly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than a poorly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we’ll also give you the opportunity to specify a different version of PHP for each site within the account.
