PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also known as PHP, is a famous general-purpose programming language, which can be used to set up dynamic sites with interactive elements such as forums, e-learning websites or social networking sites. In comparison to static HTML-based websites, a PHP site can serve unique web content to each user under the same page URL. Because of the fact that PHP-based Internet applications can be managed via a single Control Panel tool, which you can log in to from any web browser, you won’t have to possess any coding skills or past experience whatsoever to administer a PHP-powered website. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites worldwide are PHP-based is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You should only make sure that the server on which your site is hosted supports the same PHP version as the one that you used whilst setting up the site.

Our shared hosting servers support several PHP versions, which suggests that your websites will run without any problem no matter if your PHP scripts are outdated. We realize that an old site doesn’t inevitably imply a vulnerable one as you may have done plenty of source code mods. 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 shared hosting account. You can change the version with only one single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied instantly. If you want to run both older and newer scripts, there is even an option to use a different PHP version for each of your domain names at the same time.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting support multiple PHP versions, which means that you’ll be able to use all the Internet apps that you have created through the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated server account, will enable you to set the needed version with one mouse click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you want to host multiple websites in one account and they have distinct requirements relative to the hosting platform, you’ll be able to set a different version for each one of them irrespective of which version has been enabled for the account as a whole. This is accomplishable owing to our custom cloud hosting platform, which permits us to run different versions of PHP all at the same time. By comparison, the vast majority of hosting suppliers normally offer one, in extremely rare cases – two versions.
