PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also called PHP, is a famous general-purpose server-side programming language, which can be used to develop dynamic websites with interactive elements such as bulletin boards, online learning portals or community portals. In contrast with static HTML sites, a PHP site can show unique web content to each visitor under the same exact URL. Given the fact that PHP-based web-based applications can be managed through one single Control Panel, which you can sign onto using any Internet browser, you will not have to possess any programming know-how or past experience to maintain a PHP-driven site. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites around the world are created with PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You must only ensure that the server where you host your website supports the same exact version of PHP as the one that you used while building the website.

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

We have reached a decision not to restrict our present and future customers from picking what PHP version their websites will be using, which goes to say that in case you purchase a shared hosting plan from our company, you will be able to select between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account itself, but also for each domain name hosted by you. This can be accomplished with only one single mouse click from our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel via which all hosting accounts are administered, which is why you won’t need to have any technical or coding knowledge. You will be able to run sites based on both new and old PHP scripts without hassle, so if you wish to abandon your current web host and migrate over to us, you can be certain that all the sites that you have created over the years will continue to run faultlessly.

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

If you’ve got a website created using an earlier PHP version and you have put time and energy toward setting it up, patching security breaches and inserting page content, you will need to find a hosting service that can support it, since most web hosting providers today offer support only for the most recent PHP version and remove the earlier ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to allow you to select the exact version that your very own websites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which suggests that you will be able to use both newer and older scripts without losing any custom tweaks or frittering away time and efforts trying to make your sites compatible with the web hosting environment. You can change the current version through the Hepsia Control Panel and such a change will apply to the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you will also have the ability to pick a different version of PHP for each individual website hosted in your account by means of an .htaccess file.
