PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly called PHP, is a famous server-side programming language, which is used to set up dynamic sites with interactive components like Internet forums, e-learning sites or social networking sites. In contrast to static HTML-based websites, a PHP site can display unique content to each visitor under the very same URL. As PHP-based web-based applications can be managed via a single Control Panel, which you can log in to using any web browser, you will not have to possess any coding abilities or practical experience to administer a PHP-driven website. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the globe are built with PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You only ought to verify if the server on which your website is hosted supports the same exact version of PHP as the one that you used while building the site.

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

If you have a site built on an older version of PHP and you have funneled time and efforts into developing it, filling security gaps and appending content, you’ll need to find a hosting service that can support it, since most hosting providers today support only the newest PHP version and remove the older ones. We, however, have decided to permit you to choose the version that your very own websites need. Our semi-dedicated plans support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which suggests that you will be able to use both older and newer scripts without forfeiting any custom modifications or frittering away time and energy attempting to make your sites compatible with the web hosting environment. You can change the current version via the Hepsia Control Panel and such a change will apply to the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you will also have the ability to choose a different PHP version for each individual website that you host in your account by using an .htaccess configuration file.
