PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, usually called PHP, is a popular server-side programming language, which can be used to set up dynamic sites with interactive components like forums, online learning websites or social networking sites. In stark contrast to static HTML-based sites, a PHP site can show unique content to each user under the same URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based web-based apps can be managed via a single Control Panel, which you can log into from any online browser, you won’t have to possess any programming abilities or previous experience in order to maintain a PHP website. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites all over the globe are created using PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only ought to check if the server on which your site is hosted supports the same exact version of PHP as the one that you used whilst setting up the site.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which means that your websites will work without any problems no matter if your PHP scripts are out of date. We know that an old website doesn’t necessarily mean a vulnerable one as you may have carried out plenty of code modifications. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can pick which one will be active for your shared web hosting account. You can change the version with only one single click of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will take effect immediately. If you’d like to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each of your domains at the same time.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Even if your sites were built with an older PHP version, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support several versions running simultaneously on our servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with no more than a click of the mouse via our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition to the latest PHP 7, we also offer 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4, which has already been dropped by most hosting providers, but we are convinced that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a site that took years to build, as older script language syntax doesn’t inevitably imply security holes. Quite the opposite, a properly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than an improperly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we’ll also provide you with the opportunity to choose a different version for each single website within your account.
