PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly referred to as PHP, is a famous coding language, which can be used to develop dynamic sites with interactive features such as discussion forums, e-learning portals or social networking websites. In comparison with static HTML websites, a PHP-driven website can display unique web content to each visitor under the very same page URL. Because of the fact that PHP-based applications can be managed via a single Control Panel tool, which you can log in to using any web browser, you won’t need any web design skills or previous experience whatsoever to maintain a PHP-driven website. The fact that 100s of millions of websites around the globe are created using PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You should only ensure that the server where you host your site supports the same PHP version as the one that you used whilst developing the site.

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

Our shared hosting servers support several PHP versions, so your websites will work without any problem even if your scripts are out of date. We recognize the fact that an old website does not always mean a vulnerable one as you may have done a lot of code mods. This is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can choose which version will be enabled for your web hosting account. The version can be changed with one mouse click within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will take effect immediately. If you wish to run both newer and older scripts, there’s 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

If you’ve got a website created using a previous PHP version and you have spent time and effort developing it, plugging safety gaps and embedding web content, you will need a web hosting service that can support it, since nearly all hosting providers these days support only the newest version of PHP and abandon the older ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you select the exact version that your websites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which suggests that you’ll be able to run both older and newer scripts without losing any manual modifications or frittering away time and effort striving to make your websites compatible with the web hosting environment. You can change the current version through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will apply to the entire semi-dedicated account, but you will also have the ability to select a different PHP version for each single site hosted in your account by using an .htaccess file.
