PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, otherwise known as PHP, is a popular programming language, which is used to set up dynamic websites with interactive features like discussion boards, e-teaching portals or social networking websites. In stark contrast to static HTML websites, a PHP-driven site can show different web content to each visitor under the same URL. Since PHP-based applications can be managed through a Control Panel, which you can sign in to from any Internet browser, you will not need to have any programming knowledge or practical experience whatsoever to run a PHP site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites worldwide are built with PHP is indicative of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only have to verify whether the web server on which your site is hosted supports the same exact PHP version as the one that you used whilst setting up the site.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Hosting
With our cloud hosting, you will be able to select the PHP version that will be enabled for your shared account, as multiple versions are installed on our servers. With as little as one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is released in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the earlier versions. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you’ve created through the years. In contrast with a lot of other web hosting suppliers, we will not force you to update such websites, because a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it’s vulnerable since you may have performed modifications to its code to patch safety holes. For the sake of your convenience, you’ll even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each site that you host in your shared web hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’ve got a site created with a previous PHP version and you’ve donated time and efforts towards developing it, patching security breaches and posting web page content, you’ll need to find a web hosting service that can support it, since nearly all hosting suppliers these days support only the most recently introduced version of PHP and give up the older ones. We, however, have decided to allow you to pick the version that your very own sites require. Our semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which suggests that you’ll be able to use both newer and older scripts without losing any customizations or frittering away time and energy trying to make your websites compatible with the hosting environment. You can change the current version via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will affect the entire semi-dedicated account, but you’ll also be able to choose a different version for each website hosted in your account using an .htaccess config file.
