PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, typically referred to as PHP, is a famous general-purpose scripting language, which can be used to create dynamic websites with interactive elements like message boards, online teaching sites or community web portals. In stark contrast to static HTML-based sites, a PHP-driven site can display unique content to each visitor under the exact same page URL. Due to the fact that PHP-based Internet apps can be managed via one single Control Panel tool, which you can log on to using any Internet browser, you won’t need to have any coding skills or previous experience whatsoever to maintain a PHP-driven website. The fact that 100s of millions of websites worldwide are based on PHP is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You only ought to verify whether the server on which your site is hosted supports the exact same version of PHP as the one that you used whilst creating the site.

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

If you purchase a cloud web hosting plan from our company, you’ll never need to ponder over whether your websites are compatible with the hosting platform, since different PHP versions are enabled on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with just one single click of the mouse and if you would like to change the version, the new settings will be applied instantly. Thus, several years of work on websites created with an older version of PHP won’t go down the drain. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, which means that you can use newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most hosting companies on the market support one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In contrast to them, we deem that you should be the one to select the version that your very own sites will use.

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

Even if your sites were created with an older PHP version, you will 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 of them can be enabled for your account with just one click of the mouse from our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. Besides the latest PHP 7, we also offer 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4, which has already been dropped by the great majority of web hosting companies, but we reckon that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a website that took several years to develop, since older script language syntax doesn’t necessarily equal security holes. Quite the opposite, an adequately maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than a wrongly maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also give you the possibility to set a different version of PHP for each single website within your account.
