PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, otherwise referred to as PHP, is a popular multiparadigm programming language, which is used to set up dynamic websites with interactive features like discussion forums, online teaching sites or social networks. Unlike static HTML-based sites, a PHP website can display unique web content to each user under the same page URL. Because of the fact that PHP-based applications can be managed through one Control Panel, which you can log on to from any Internet browser, you will not need any computer programming knowledge or prior experience whatsoever in order to maintain a PHP-driven website. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites all over the world are built with PHP is indicative of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only need to make certain that the web server on which your site is hosted supports the same PHP version as the one that you used whilst developing the site.

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

In case you buy a cloud hosting package from us, you won’t ever need to ask yourself if your sites are compatible with the web hosting environment, as we offer support for several PHP versions for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with just one single click and if you would like to change the current version, the update will be applied instantly. Thus, several years of work on websites built with an older version of PHP won’t be wasted. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which suggests that you can use older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most hosting providers on the marketplace offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. In stark contrast with them, we hold that you should be the one to choose the version that will be used by your own sites.

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

In case you have a site built on an earlier version of PHP and you have contributed time and energy into developing it, patching security breaches and entering web page content, you will need to find a hosting service that can support it, as nearly all hosting vendors today offer support only for the most recently unveiled PHP version and remove the previous ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you choose the exact version that your very own sites need. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, so you’ll be able to run both older and newer scripts without losing any manual settings or wasting time trying to make your sites compatible with the hosting environment. You can change the version via the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will apply to the whole semi-dedicated server account, but you’ll also have the ability to specify a different version of PHP for each individual site that you host in your account using an .htaccess file.
