PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also known as PHP, is a famous general-purpose server-side scripting language, which is used to develop dynamic sites with interactive features like Internet forums, e-teaching portals or social networks. In stark contrast to static HTML websites, a PHP-driven site can serve different web content to each visitor under the same exact page URL. As PHP-based web apps can be managed via one Control Panel, which you can log in to from any web browser, you won’t need any computer programming capabilities or practical experience whatsoever in order to administer a PHP site. The fact that 100s of millions of websites around the world are created with PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You should only make sure that the server where you host your website supports the same version of PHP as the one that you used while developing the website.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting servers support different PHP versions, which implies that your sites will work correctly no matter if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We accept the fact that an old site does not automatically mean an insecure one as you may have carried out lots of mods to its code. This is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can pick which one will be enabled for your web hosting account. You can change the version with only one single click through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will be applied straight away. If you would like to run both newer and older scripts, there is even an option to use a different PHP version for each of your domains at the same time.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’ve got a website built on an earlier PHP version and you have dedicated time and efforts in developing it, fixing safety loopholes and appending content, you will need a hosting service that can support it, since almost all web hosts today offer only the latest PHP version and abandon the older versions. We, however, have decided to permit you to choose the exact version that your very own sites need. Our Linux semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which means that you will be able to run both older and newer scripts without losing any customizations or frittering away time and effort striving to make your websites compatible with the hosting platform. You can change the current version via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will apply to the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you’ll also have the ability to select a different PHP version for each website that you host in your account by using an .htaccess config file.
