PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, typically referred to as PHP, is a popular open-source server-side programming language, which is used to create dynamic websites with interactive components like message boards, online learning websites or community websites. In comparison to static HTML sites, a PHP-driven site can show different content to each user under the exact same page URL. Due to the fact that PHP-based applications can be managed through a Control Panel tool, which you can log onto from any Internet browser, you won’t need to possess any web development expertise or prior experience to run a PHP-driven site. The fact that 100s of millions of websites all over the globe are created using PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only ought to confirm if the server where you host your website supports the very same version of PHP as the one that you used whilst building the site.

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

We’ve decided not to restrict our present and future customers from choosing what PHP version their websites will use, so in case you purchase a cloud web hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the account as a whole, but also for each individual domain name hosted by you. This can be done with only one mouse click from our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared hosting accounts are managed, which is the reason why you will not have to possess any programming or technical capabilities. You’ll be able to host websites based on both new and old PHP-based scripts without having to overcome any problems, so if you’d like to abandon your current web hosting supplier and migrate over to us, you can be certain that all the websites that you’ve developed through the years will continue to work impeccably.

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

Even if your sites were built with an earlier version of PHP, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support several versions running at the same time on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be activated for your account with no more than one click of the mouse via our custom Hepsia Control Panel. Besides the most recent PHP 7, we also offer support for 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been abandoned by the majority of web hosting providers, but we maintain that you should not be compelled to modify a site that took years to create, since older scripting language syntax does not automatically mean security gaps. On the contrary, a properly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an incorrectly maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also offer you the possibility to select a different PHP version for each website within the account.
