PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also known as PHP, is a popular web programming language, which is used to create dynamic sites with interactive features such as bulletin boards, online learning portals or community web portals. In comparison to static HTML-based websites, a PHP-driven website can display different web content to each user under the same URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based web applications can be managed through a Control Panel tool, which you can sign onto using any browser, you will not need to have any programming experience or past experience in order to run a PHP-driven website. The fact that 100s of millions of websites around the globe are built using PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only ought to confirm whether or not the web server on which your site is hosted supports the same version of PHP as the one that you used whilst setting up the website.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Hosting
We’ve made a decision not to prevent our present and future clients from selecting the PHP version that their websites will be using, which suggests that in case you get a cloud hosting plan from us, you will be able to select between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account itself, but also for each individual domain hosted by you. This can be accomplished with just one click of the mouse through our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel via which all hosting accounts are administered, which is the reason why you will not need to possess any technical or coding know-how. You’ll be able to run websites based on both old and new PHP-based scripts without having to cope with any complications, so if you want to swap your present hosting services provider and switch over to us, you can rest assured that all the sites that you’ve developed over the years will continue to run flawlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Even in case your sites were created with an older PHP version, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support different versions running simultaneously on our servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with no more than a click from our in-house 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 hosting vendors, but we strongly trust that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a website that took several years to develop, as older scripting language syntax does not automatically suggest security weaknesses. Quite the opposite, an adequately maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than an incompetently maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we will also give you the possibility to pick a different version for each website within the account.
