PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly referred to as PHP, is a popular open-source server-side coding language, which is used to set up dynamic websites with interactive elements such as message boards, online teaching websites or social networking websites. In contrast to static HTML-based websites, a PHP website can display different web content to each visitor under the very same URL. Since PHP-based web-based apps can be managed via a single Control Panel, which you can sign in to using any web browser, you won’t need to have any computer programming abilities or practical experience in order to maintain a PHP site. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites all over the globe are PHP-based is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You only need to verify whether or not the web server where you host your website supports the very same PHP version as the one that you used whilst setting up the site.

PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Web Hosting

Our web hosting servers support several PHP versions, so your websites will work flawlessly even if your scripts are outdated. We realize that an old website does not always mean an insecure one as you may have implemented lots of modifications to its code. That’s the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can decide which one will be enabled for your account. The version can be changed with a single mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will take effect instantly. In case you’d like to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each of your domains simultaneously.

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

Even in case your websites were created with an earlier PHP version, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support different versions running at the same time on our servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with just a click through our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. Other than the newest 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 abandoned by the great majority of web hosting companies, but we are convinced that you should not be forced to modify a website that took several years to create, since older scripting language syntax does not necessarily equal safety weaknesses. Just the opposite, a rightly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a non-maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we’ll also provide you with the possibility to specify a different PHP version for each website within your account.
