PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, commonly known as PHP, is a popular multiparadigm programming language, which can be used to build dynamic sites with interactive elements such as Internet forums, online teaching websites or community web portals. In stark contrast to static HTML-based websites, a PHP site can show unique content to each visitor under the same exact URL. As PHP-based apps can be managed through one single Control Panel, which you can log on to using any web browser, you won’t need to have any computer programming expertise or prior experience whatsoever to administer a PHP-powered site. The fact that 100s of millions of websites all over the globe are built with PHP is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You only ought to check whether the web server where you host your site supports the same exact version of PHP as the one that you used while building the site.

We acknowledge the fact that an old site doesn’t always mean an insecure one as you may have done lots of modifications to its source code. That is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can pick which one will be active for your account.

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

In case you’ve got a site based on an earlier version of PHP and you have dedicated time and effort into setting it up, fixing security loopholes and inserting page content, you will need to find a hosting service that can support it, since the vast majority of hosting providers these days support only the most recent PHP version and drop the earlier ones.
