PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, usually referred to as PHP, is a famous general-purpose server-side scripting language, which can be used to set up dynamic websites with interactive components such as bulletin boards, online teaching portals or social networking websites. In stark contrast to static HTML-based sites, a PHP-powered site can serve unique content to each visitor under the exact same URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based Internet applications can be managed through a Control Panel tool, which you can log onto using any browser, you will not need any computer programming skills or past experience whatsoever to administer a PHP-driven website. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites all over the globe are based on PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You should only check whether or not the web server on which your site is hosted supports the same PHP version as the one that you used whilst building the site.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you order a cloud web hosting package from our company, you’ll never have to ponder on whether your sites are compatible with the web hosting platform, as multiple PHP versions are installed on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with just one click and in case you would like to change the current version, the update will take effect instantaneously. Thus, years of work on websites built with an older version will not go down the tube. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which means that you can run newer and older scripts at the same time. Most hosting companies on the market offer one, sometimes two PHP versions. Unlike them, we consider that you should be the one to pick the version that will be used by your own websites.
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 multiple versions running simultaneously on our servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with just a click of the mouse through our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Apart from the most recent 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. The latter has already been dropped by the great majority of web hosting providers, but we hold that you should not be compelled to modify a site that took several years to set up, since older script language syntax doesn’t always suggest safety vulnerabilities. On the contrary, a properly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an improperly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we will also offer you the possibility to pick a different version for each website within the account.
