PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly called PHP, is a famous curly-brace programming language, which can be used to set up dynamic sites with interactive features such as discussion boards, online teaching sites or community web portals. In contrast with static HTML-based sites, a PHP website can display different web content to each user under the exact same page URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based applications can be managed through a single Control Panel tool, which you can sign into from any browser, you will not need to have any web design knowledge or prior experience to maintain a PHP-driven site. The fact that 100s of millions of websites around the globe are created with PHP is an indication of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only need to ensure that the web server on which your website is hosted 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 Web Hosting

In case you get a cloud web hosting plan from us, you will never have to worry about whether or not your websites are compatible with the web hosting platform, as multiple versions of PHP are available on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to select PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with just one single click and if you want to change the version, the new settings will take effect immediately. In this way, years of work on websites built with an older version won’t go down the tube. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different PHP version for each domain name hosted in your account, which implies that you can use newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most hosting providers on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two PHP versions. In stark contrast with them, we believe that you should be the one to choose the version that your very own sites will be using.

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

Even if your websites were created with an earlier PHP version, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support multiple versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be activated for your account with just one click of the mouse through our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Apart from the newest PHP 7, we also offer support for 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4, which has already been dropped by the majority of web hosting vendors, but we reckon that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a site that took several years to create, as older scripting language syntax doesn’t necessarily imply safety flaws. Quite the opposite, an adequately maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an inadequately maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we will also give you the possibility to choose a different version of PHP for each single website within your account.
