PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also referred to as PHP, is a popular general-purpose server-side programming language, which is used to create dynamic websites with interactive elements such as discussion forums, online learning websites or community sites. In stark contrast to static HTML-based sites, a PHP-powered site can show different web content to each visitor under the same page URL. Due to the fact that PHP-based web applications can be managed via one Control Panel, which you can log on to from any browser, you will not need to possess any computer programming abilities or past experience whatsoever in order to maintain a PHP site. The fact that 100s of millions of websites all over the world are created using PHP is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You only need to make sure that the web server where you host your site supports the same exact PHP version as the one that you used while creating the site.

Our website hosting servers support different PHP versions, which suggests that your websites will work without any problem no matter if your PHP scripts are out of date. We recognize the fact that an old site does not automatically mean a vulnerable one as you may have done a lot of mods to its code. This is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can pick which one will be enabled for your shared web hosting account. You can change the version with one single click via your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied momentarily. If you wish to run both older and newer scripts, there is even an option to use a different version of PHP for each domain name of yours at the same time.
