PHP, which is an abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most famous open-source web programming languages that are available out there. Any site or web-based application written in PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is installed, which renders the language absolutely universal and it is not very surprising that there are actually a few million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it enables you to create a dynamic site with a vast number of options. A PHP-based community web portal, for instance, will serve different web content to each visitor irrespective of the fact that the page URL will remain the same. By contrast, HTML sites are static and the page content can be updated only manually. Like any other software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used while setting up a given website must be set up on the server so that the site can run flawlessly.

PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Web Hosting

We have made the decision not to prevent our current and prospective customers from picking the PHP version that their sites will use, so if you order a cloud web hosting package from us, you will be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account in general, but also for each domain hosted by you. This can be done with only one click through our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all hosting accounts are managed, so you won’t need to have any technical or coding capabilities. You’ll be able to host sites based on both new and old PHP scripts without having to cope with any obstacles, so if you wish to abandon your present web hosting vendor and move over to us, you can be certain that all the sites that you have created over the years will continue to run properly.

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

Even if your websites were created with an older version of PHP, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support several versions running at the same time on our semi-dedicated servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with just a click via our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. Aside from the most recent 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, which has already been abandoned by the majority of web hosting suppliers, but we strongly believe that you should not be compelled to modify a site that took years to create, as older programming language syntax doesn’t automatically mean security flaws. Quite the opposite, a properly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an incompetently maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we’ll also offer you the possibility to pick a different version of PHP for each website within the account.
