PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly referred to as PHP, is a popular reflective programming language, which is used to build dynamic websites with interactive components such as bulletin boards, e-learning websites or social networks. In stark contrast with static HTML sites, a PHP site can display unique web content to each user under the exact same page URL. Since PHP-based web-based apps can be managed through a Control Panel tool, which you can log into using any Internet browser, you won’t need to have any web design skills or practical experience whatsoever in order to run a PHP site. The fact that 100s of millions of websites around the globe are based on PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You only have to check whether the web server on which your site is hosted supports the same exact version of PHP as the one that you used while developing the site.

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

With our shared website hosting services, you will be able to select the version of PHP that will be active for your shared hosting account, as different versions are enabled on our servers. With as little as one mouse click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is unveiled in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous versions. In this way, you will be able to host all the sites that you have created through the years. Unlike lots of other hosting suppliers, we won’t compel you to update such websites, as a script may be out of date, but this does not necessarily mean that it is vulnerable since you may have carried out modifications to its source code to fix safety breaches. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to specify a different version of PHP for each single site hosted in your shared account.

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

In case you’ve got a site created in an earlier PHP version and you’ve dedicated time and efforts on developing it, repairing safety holes and entering content, you’ll need a web hosting service that can support it, as almost all web hosting vendors these days support only the latest version of PHP and give up the previous versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to allow you to pick the exact version that your own sites need. Our semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which goes to say that you will be able to run both newer and older scripts without losing any manual tweaks or misspending time struggling to make your sites compatible with the web hosting platform. You can change the current version from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will affect the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you’ll also be able to set a different version of PHP for each site hosted in your account by using an .htaccess config file.
