PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, typically called PHP, is a popular web development language, which is used to create dynamic sites with interactive features like bulletin boards, e-learning websites or community sites. In comparison to static HTML-based websites, a PHP-driven site can display different content to each visitor under the very same page URL. Since PHP-based apps can be managed via a Control Panel tool, which you can sign into from any browser, you won’t need any computer programming capabilities or previous experience whatsoever in order to run a PHP-powered website. The fact that 100s of millions of websites all over the globe are built using PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only have to confirm that the web server where you host your website supports the same PHP version as the one that you used while creating the site.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting servers support different PHP versions, so your sites will work correctly no matter if your scripts are out of date. We realize that an old site doesn’t inevitably equal an insecure one as you may have done lots of code modifications. That’s the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can select which one will be active for your web hosting account. You can change the version with one single click via your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied momentarily. In case you want to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even an option to use a different PHP version for each of your domain names simultaneously.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Even if your websites were built with an older PHP version, you will 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 servers and each of them can be activated for your account with no more than a click through our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Aside from the most recent PHP 7, we also offer support for 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4, which has already been dropped by most web hosting providers, but we strongly trust that you should not be forced to modify a website that took several years to develop, as older scripting language syntax does not necessarily equal security holes. On the contrary, a correctly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a wrongly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we’ll also offer you the possibility to specify a different PHP version for each site within the account.
