PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, usually referred to as PHP, is a famous server-side scripting language, which is used to develop dynamic websites with interactive features such as message boards, e-teaching portals or social networking websites. In contrast with static HTML-based websites, a PHP-driven website can serve unique web content to each user under the very same URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based Internet applications can be managed through one Control Panel, which you can sign on to using any Internet browser, you will not need to possess any web development experience or past experience to administer a PHP-driven website. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites all over the globe are created in PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You only ought to verify if the web server on which your website is hosted supports the same exact version of PHP as the one that you used whilst setting up the site.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Hosting

In case you buy a shared hosting plan from our company, you’ll never need to wonder whether or not your websites are compatible with the web hosting environment, as multiple versions of PHP are activated on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with only one click and if you’d like to change the version, the update will be applied instantaneously. In this way, years of work on websites built with an older PHP version will not be lost. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which suggests that you can use newer and older scripts at the same time. Most hosting providers on the marketplace support one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In stark contrast with them, we strongly maintain that you should be the one to choose the version that your own sites will be using.

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

Even in case your sites were built with an older PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support different versions running at the same time on our semi-dedicated servers and each one of them can be activated for your account with just a click via our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Aside from the most recent PHP 7, we also support 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been abandoned by the majority of hosting providers, but we strongly think that you should not be compelled to modify a website that took several years to set up, since older script language syntax does not always suggest safety gaps. On the contrary, an adequately maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a badly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we’ll also offer you the opportunity to select a different version of PHP for each site within your account.
