PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, typically referred to as PHP, is a popular class-based programming language, which is used to set up dynamic sites with interactive components like bulletin boards, e-teaching sites or community portals. In stark contrast with static HTML websites, a PHP-driven site can display unique content to each user under the very same page URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based web applications can be managed through a Control Panel, which you can log in to from any browser, you will not need to have any programming experience or past experience whatsoever to run a PHP-driven site. The fact that 100s of millions of websites all over the world are built on PHP is indicative of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only have to make sure that the server on which your site is hosted supports the same version of PHP as the one that you used whilst setting up the website.

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

We’ve decided not to restrict our present and potential clients from selecting what PHP version will be used by their sites, which suggests that if you get a shared website hosting package from us, you’ll be able to select between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the account in general, but also for each single domain name hosted by you. This can be accomplished with only one mouse click from our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all shared web hosting accounts are administered, which is the reason why you won’t have to possess any technical or programming knowledge. You’ll be able to run sites built with both old and new PHP-based scripts without trouble, so if you want to leave your present web host and switch over to us, you can be certain that all the websites that you’ve created over the years will continue to work impeccably.

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

Even if your sites were created with an earlier PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support different versions running at the same time on our semi-dedicated servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with just one click of the mouse via our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. Aside from the most recent PHP 7, we also offer support for 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4, which has already been dropped by the great majority of hosting companies, but we reckon that you should not be compelled to modify a site that took several years to create, as older script language syntax does not invariably suggest safety holes. On the contrary, a correctly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a badly maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also give you the possibility to specify a different version of PHP for each site within the account.
