PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly referred to as PHP, is a famous general-purpose server-side coding language, which can be used to build dynamic websites with interactive features such as Internet forums, online learning websites or social networks. In stark contrast with static HTML-based websites, a PHP-powered site can serve different web content to each visitor under the same exact page URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based web-based apps can be managed via one single Control Panel, which you can log onto from any online browser, you will not need to have any web design capabilities or past experience in order to run a PHP-driven site. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites all over the world are created using PHP is an indication of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only need to confirm whether or not the server on which your site is hosted supports the same exact version of PHP as the one that you used whilst developing the site.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Hosting

With our hosting, you’ll be able to choose the version of PHP that will be active for your shared web hosting account, as we offer support for several versions. With as little as one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is released in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the previous ones. Thus, you will be able to host all the sites that you’ve set up over the years. In stark contrast to a lot of other hosting providers, we won’t force you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it is insecure since you may have modified its code to fix safety loopholes. For your convenience, you will even be able to specify a different version of PHP for each site hosted in your hosting account.

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

Even in case your websites were created with an earlier PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support multiple versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be activated for your account with no more than one click of the mouse from our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Apart from the latest PHP 7, we also offer support for 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been dropped by the vast majority of hosting suppliers, but we strongly feel that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a site that took years to develop, as older programming language syntax doesn’t inevitably imply safety breaches. On the contrary, a properly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an improperly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we will also give you the opportunity to specify a different version for each single site within your account.
