PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also called PHP, is a popular general-purpose server-side scripting language, which is used to set up dynamic websites with interactive elements like Internet forums, e-learning websites or community portals. In contrast to static HTML-based sites, a PHP-driven site can serve unique content to each visitor under the very same page URL. As PHP-based Internet applications can be managed via a single Control Panel, which you can log on to using any Internet browser, you will not need to possess any computer programming know-how or prior experience whatsoever to administer a PHP website. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites all over the globe are built using PHP is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You should only confirm whether the web server on which your site is hosted supports the exact same PHP version as the one that you used while developing the site.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting servers support different PHP versions, which goes to say that your websites will work correctly no matter if your PHP scripts are outdated. We recognize the fact that an old website doesn’t always equal an insecure one as you may have implemented lots of source code mods. This is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can choose which one will be enabled for your shared web hosting account. The version can be changed with a single click of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will take effect immediately. If you want to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each of your domains at the same time.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can change the current version either for a single site or for the account itself and the change will take effect in less than several minutes. With our hosting services, you can be sure that you will never chance upon any website incompatibility issues.
