PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly known as PHP, is a famous interpreted programming language, which can be used to build dynamic sites with interactive components like bulletin boards, online learning portals or community websites. In comparison to static HTML sites, a PHP-driven site can show different content to each user under the same exact URL. Due to the fact that PHP-based applications can be managed through a Control Panel, which you can log in to from any browser, you will not need to possess any programming knowledge or practical experience in order to run a PHP website. The fact that 100s of millions of websites worldwide are built using PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You only need to make certain that the server on which your site is hosted supports the exact same PHP version as the one that you used while creating the site.

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

We’ve made the decision not to prevent our present and prospective clients from picking the PHP version that their sites will be using, which implies that in case you buy a shared hosting package from us, you’ll be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account in general, but also for each individual domain hosted by you. This can be done with only one single click of the mouse from our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all accounts are managed, which is why you won’t need to possess any technical or coding skills. You will be able to run websites built with both new and old PHP-based scripts without having to cope with any difficulties, so if you wish to swap your current hosting supplier and migrate over to us, you can be sure that all the websites that you’ve created over the years will continue to work faultlessly.

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

Even if your websites were created with an earlier version of PHP, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support several versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each one of them can be activated for your account with no more than a click from our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Apart from the latest 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 hosting providers, but we strongly reckon that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a website that took years to build, as older script language syntax does not always mean safety breaches. Just the opposite, a rightly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a negligently maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we will also provide you with the opportunity to choose a different version for each single website within the account.
