PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, otherwise referred to as PHP, is a popular multi-paradigm programming language, which can be used to set up dynamic sites with interactive components such as discussion boards, online learning sites or social networking sites. In stark contrast to static HTML-based sites, a PHP-driven website can show different web content to each user under the same page URL. Because of the fact that PHP-based web-based apps can be managed via a single Control Panel tool, which you can sign onto from any Internet browser, you will not have to possess any web development abilities or practical experience whatsoever to run a PHP-driven site. The fact that 100s of millions of websites around the globe are built using PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You only ought to confirm that the web server on which your site is hosted supports the same exact PHP version as the one that you used while setting up the site.

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

If you order a web hosting package from our company, you won’t ever have to speculate about whether or not your websites are compatible with the hosting environment, as we support several PHP versions for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with only one click and in case you want to change the current version, the update will take effect instantly. Thus, many years of work on websites built with an older PHP version will not be wasted. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain name hosted in your account, which implies that you can use older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most hosting providers on the marketplace support one, sometimes two PHP versions. In contrast with them, we think that you should be the one to pick the version that your own websites will be using.

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

If you have a website built using an earlier PHP version and you’ve committed time and efforts to setting it up, repairing safety loopholes and inputting web page content, you will need a hosting service that can support it, since most hosting suppliers today offer support only for the most recently launched PHP version and drop the earlier versions. We, however, have decided to let you pick the exact version that your very own websites need. Our semi-dedicated hosting plans support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, so you’ll be able to use both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any manual modifications or frittering away time trying to make your sites compatible with the hosting environment. You can change the version through the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will apply to the entire account, but you will also be able to choose a different version of PHP for each site that you host in your account using an .htaccess configuration file.
