PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, usually called PHP, is a famous open-source server-side coding language, which can be used to develop dynamic websites with interactive features such as Internet forums, online learning websites or community portals. In comparison with static HTML websites, a PHP-powered website can show unique web content to each user under the same page URL. Given the fact that PHP-based Internet apps can be managed through one single Control Panel tool, which you can log on to from any Internet browser, you won’t need to have any coding know-how or prior experience in order to maintain a PHP website. The fact that 100s of millions of websites all over the globe are created in PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only have to verify that the server where you host your site supports the same PHP version as the one that you used whilst setting up the site.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Hosting
Our hosting servers support several versions of PHP, so your websites will work flawlessly no matter if your PHP scripts are outdated. We accept the fact that an old site does not invariably mean an insecure one as you may have done a lot of source code modifications. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can pick which one will be active for your shared web hosting account. The version can be changed with a single mouse click within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will be applied right away. If you’d like to run both newer and older scripts, there is even an option to use a different PHP version for each domain name of yours at the same time.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Even in case your websites were created with an older PHP version, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support different versions running at the same time on our semi-dedicated servers and each one of them can be activated for your account with no more than a click of the mouse through our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition to 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 vast majority of web hosting providers, but we consider that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a site that took years to set up, as older scripting language syntax doesn’t necessarily suggest security breaches. On the contrary, a rightly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than an incorrectly maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also give you the possibility to specify a different PHP version for each website within your account.
