PHP, which is a backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most popular imperative programming languages out there. Any site or web-based app created using PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is installed, which renders the language really universal and it is not that surprising that there are actually a couple of million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it enables you to create a dynamic website with tons of features. A PHP-based social network, for example, will display different web content to each user regardless of the fact that the URL will stay unchanged. On the other hand, HTML-based websites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the one that was used whilst developing a specific website must be activated on the web server in order for the site to run faultlessly.

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

We have made the decision not to restrict our present and future customers from picking what PHP version their sites will be using, which implies that in case you purchase a cloud website hosting package from our company, you will be able to pick between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the account in general, but also for each individual domain hosted by you. This can be accomplished with only one click through our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel via which all hosting accounts are administered, which is why you will not have to possess any technical or programming capabilities. You will be able to manage sites built with both new and old PHP-based scripts without having to deal with any predicaments, so if you wish to leave your present hosting services provider and switch over to us, you can be certain that all the websites that you’ve created over the years will continue to run flawlessly.

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

Even in case your sites were created with an older PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support different versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with just a click of the mouse from our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. Besides the newest 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. The latter has already been abandoned by the vast majority of web hosting suppliers, but we strongly think that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a site that took several years to set up, since older script language syntax does not automatically imply safety loopholes. Just the opposite, an adequately maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an inadequately maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we’ll also offer you the opportunity to pick a different version of PHP for each site within the account.
