PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly called PHP, is a famous interpreted programming language, which can be used to build dynamic sites with interactive features such as bulletin boards, online learning portals or social networks. Unlike static HTML websites, a PHP website can show unique web content to each user under the same exact URL. Because of the fact that PHP-based web applications can be managed via one single Control Panel, which you can log on to using any Internet browser, you will not need to possess any computer programming abilities or practical experience to administer a PHP-driven website. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites worldwide are built with PHP is an indication of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You only need to make sure that the server on which your website is hosted supports the exact same PHP version as the one that you used while creating the site.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Hosting
With our cloud services, you will be able to pick which version of PHP will be enabled for your web hosting account, since several versions are available on our servers. With only one click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is introduced in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous ones. Thus, you will be able to host all the websites that you’ve built through the years. In contrast to many other hosting suppliers, we will not force you to update such sites, as a script may be outdated, but this does not necessarily mean that it is vulnerable since you may have performed modifications to its code to prevent security holes. For your convenience’s sake, you’ll even be able to specify a different version of PHP for each site hosted in your shared account.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a site based on an older PHP version and you’ve dedicated time and effort in developing it, repairing safety gaps and posting content, you’ll need a hosting service that can support it, since the majority of hosting suppliers today support only the most recently published version of PHP and remove the earlier versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you select the exact version that your own websites require. Our semi-dedicated services support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which suggests that you’ll be able to run both older and newer scripts without forfeiting any manual tweaks or wasting time and efforts attempting to make your sites compatible with the web hosting platform. You can change the version via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will affect the whole account, but you’ll also have the ability to pick a different PHP version for each individual site that you host in your account by means of an .htaccess file.
