PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, otherwise referred to as PHP, is a popular general-purpose server-side scripting language, which is used to build dynamic sites with interactive features such as discussion forums, online teaching websites or community web portals. In comparison with static HTML sites, a PHP-driven website can show different web content to each visitor under the very same page URL. Because PHP-based web-based apps can be managed via one single Control Panel tool, which you can log in to from any online browser, you won’t need to have any web design expertise or prior experience whatsoever to maintain a PHP-driven website. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites around the globe are created in PHP is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You must only verify if the server where you host your site supports the same PHP version as the one that you used while building the website.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Hosting
We’ve made the decision not to restrict our present and future customers from selecting the PHP version that will be used by their websites, which means that if you get a shared hosting plan from our company, you will be able to pick between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account itself, but also for each domain name hosted by you. This can be accomplished with only one single click of the mouse from our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared accounts are managed, which is why you will not need any programming or technical knowledge. You will be able to manage websites based on both new and old PHP-based scripts without any hassles, so if you decide to drop your present provider and move over to us, you can rest assured that all the websites that you have set up through the years will continue to run correctly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’ve got a website built on an earlier PHP version and you’ve contributed time and effort towards setting it up, filling security gaps and embedding web page content, you will need to find a hosting service that can support it, since most web hosting companies today offer only the most recently released PHP version and remove the earlier versions. We, however, have decided to let you select the version that your very own websites require. Our semi-dedicated service support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, so you’ll be able to use both newer and older scripts without losing any custom tweaks or misspending time and effort struggling to make your websites compatible with the web hosting environment. The version can be changed from the Hepsia Control Panel and such a change will affect the whole semi-dedicated account, but you will also have the ability to specify a different version of PHP for each website that you host in your account using an .htaccess config file.
