PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also known as PHP, is a famous multi-paradigm programming language, which can be used to set up dynamic sites with interactive components such as discussion forums, school websites or community portals. In stark contrast with static HTML-based sites, a PHP-driven website can serve unique web content to each visitor under the very same page URL. Due to the fact that PHP-based web apps can be managed through one Control Panel, which you can sign in to using any web browser, you won’t need to have any coding expertise or past experience in order to administer a PHP-powered website. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites around the world are built using PHP is indicative of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only ought to make certain that the web server on which your website is hosted supports the same exact PHP version as the one that you used whilst building the website.

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

If you get a shared web hosting package from us, you’ll never have to ponder whether your sites are compatible with the hosting platform, as we support multiple PHP versions for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with only one click and if you wish to change the current version, the update will be applied straight away. In this way, several years of work on sites built with an older PHP version won’t be wasted. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which suggests that you can run older and newer scripts at the same time. Most web hosting providers on the market support one, sometimes two PHP versions. In stark contrast to them, we consider that you should be the one to select the version that your own websites will use.

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

If you’ve got a site created in a previous version of PHP and you’ve dedicated time and effort in setting it up, repairing safety holes and inserting content, you’ll need to find a web hosting service that can support it, as nearly all web hosting vendors nowadays support only the most recently launched version of PHP and remove the previous versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to permit you to select the exact version that your very own websites need. Our semi-dedicated services support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, so you will be able to use both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any custom modifications or wasting time attempting to make your sites compatible with the hosting environment. You can change the version from the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will affect the whole semi-dedicated account, but you’ll also have the ability to choose a different version of PHP for each single website that you host in your account by means of an .htaccess configuration file.
