PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, usually referred to as PHP, is a popular programming language, which can be used to create dynamic sites with interactive components like bulletin boards, online teaching websites or community portals. Unlike static HTML-based sites, a PHP-powered site can serve different content to each user under the very same page URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based web-based apps can be managed via a Control Panel, which you can log onto from any browser, you will not need to possess any coding expertise or previous experience in order to run a PHP site. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites around the globe are created using PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only need to confirm whether the server where you host your site supports the same version of PHP as the one that you used while creating the site.

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

In case you purchase a shared web hosting package from our company, you will never need to wonder if your websites are compatible with the web hosting platform, since multiple PHP versions are activated on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to select PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with just one click of the mouse and if you need to change the version, the update will take effect immediately. Thus, several years of work on sites created with an older version won’t be wasted. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which means that you can use newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting providers on the marketplace support one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In contrast to them, we trust that you should be the one to pick the version that your own websites will use.

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 will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support several versions running at the same time on our servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with just one click from our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition to the latest PHP 7, we also offer support for 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been abandoned by the vast majority of web hosting providers, but we reckon that you should not be forced to modify a site that took years to develop, since older scripting language syntax doesn’t necessarily equal safety holes. On the contrary, a correctly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an incompetently maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we’ll also give you the opportunity to pick a different version for each site within the account.
