PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly referred to as PHP, is a famous web development language, which is used to develop dynamic sites with interactive components like forums, e-teaching sites or community web portals. In comparison with static HTML sites, a PHP-driven site can show different content to each user under the very same page URL. Because PHP-based web-based applications can be managed through a single Control Panel tool, which you can access from any Internet browser, you will not need to have any coding expertise or past experience whatsoever in order to administer a PHP-powered website. The fact that 100s of millions of websites all over the world are built on PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You must only verify whether or not the server on which your website is hosted supports the exact same PHP version as the one that you used whilst building the site.

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

With our Linux web hosting, you will be able to select the version of PHP that will be enabled for your shared account, as several versions are enabled on our servers. With just one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is introduced in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the previous ones. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you have built over the years. In stark contrast with lots of other web hosting vendors, we will not force you to update such websites, because a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have performed modifications to its code to patch security breaches. For your convenience’s sake, you’ll even be able to specify a different PHP version for each individual website that you host in your shared account.

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

In case you have a website created in an older version of PHP and you have devoted time and effort to setting it up, repairing safety gaps and inputting content, you will need to find a web hosting service that can support it, since the vast majority of hosting companies today support only the newest version of PHP and give up the older ones. We, however, have decided to let you pick the version that your own websites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which implies that you’ll be able to run both older and newer scripts without forfeiting any custom settings or wasting time and effort struggling to make your websites compatible with the web hosting platform. You can change the current version from the Hepsia Control Panel and such a change will affect the entire account, but you’ll also be able to specify a different version of PHP for each single site hosted in your account by using an .htaccess configuration file.
