PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, commonly called PHP, is a popular server-side coding language, which can be used to set up dynamic websites with interactive features such as discussion boards, online teaching portals or community portals. In stark contrast to static HTML sites, a PHP-powered site can show unique web content to each visitor under the same exact page URL. Because PHP-based web applications can be managed via a Control Panel, which you can sign into from any Internet browser, you will not need to possess any web design skills or practical experience whatsoever in order to run a PHP site. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites around the globe are created with PHP is an indication of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You should only confirm whether the web server on which your site is hosted supports the same exact version of PHP as the one that you used whilst creating the website.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Hosting
In case you purchase a shared hosting package from our company, you won’t ever have to ponder whether or not your sites are compatible with the web hosting platform, since we offer support for different versions of PHP for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to select PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with just one click and in case you want to change the version, the update will be applied immediately. Thus, several years of work on websites built with an older version will not be wasted. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, which means that you can run older and newer scripts at the same time. Most hosting providers on the marketplace offer support for one, sometimes for two versions of PHP. In stark contrast to them, we strongly hold that you should be the one to pick the version that your own websites will be using.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Even in case your websites were built with an older version of PHP, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support different versions running at the same time on our servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with just one click via our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. Besides the most recent PHP 7, we also offer support for 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4, which has already been abandoned by the great majority of hosting providers, but we strongly reckon that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a website that took several years to set up, as older programming language syntax does not necessarily equal security breaches. On the contrary, a well-maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than a poorly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we will also provide you with the opportunity to select a different PHP version for each website within your account.
