PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also called PHP, is a famous web programming language, which can be used to create dynamic websites with interactive features like bulletin boards, online learning sites or social networks. Unlike static HTML-based websites, a PHP-driven website can show unique content to each user under the same exact URL. Because PHP-based apps can be managed via one single Control Panel, which you can log into from any online browser, you will not have to possess any programming knowledge or practical experience whatsoever in order to maintain a PHP website. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites all over the world are built using PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You should only verify whether or not the web server where you host your site supports the same version of PHP as the one that you used while building the site.

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

With our Linux shared hosting packages, you’ll be able to pick the PHP version that will be active for your shared web hosting account, since multiple versions are available on our servers. With only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is launched in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older versions. In this way, you will be able to host all the websites that you have built over the years. Unlike lots of other hosting vendors, we will not compel you to update such websites, because a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s vulnerable since you may have edited its source code to patch safety breaches. For your convenience’s sake, you will even be able to specify a different version of PHP for each site hosted in your shared web hosting account.

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

Even in case your websites were built with an older version of PHP, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support different versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with just a click of the mouse through our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Other than the latest PHP 7, we also support 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been dropped by the vast majority of hosting providers, but we believe that you should not be compelled to modify a website that took several years to build, as older programming language syntax doesn’t necessarily equal security loopholes. Just the opposite, a rightly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an improperly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we will also provide you with the opportunity to choose a different PHP version for each single website within your account.
