PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also known as PHP, is a popular object-oriented programming language, which can be used to create dynamic sites with interactive components such as discussion forums, online learning portals or community web portals. In stark contrast with static HTML sites, a PHP-powered site can display unique content to each visitor under the same exact URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based Internet apps can be managed via one Control Panel tool, which you can log into from any browser, you will not need to have any web design knowledge or practical experience whatsoever to maintain a PHP-driven website. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites around the world are built with PHP is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You only need to check if the web server on which your website is hosted supports the same version of PHP as the one that you used whilst building the site.

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

We’ve reached a decision not to prevent our current and future clients from selecting the PHP version that their websites will use, which implies that in case you get a website hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to select between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account in general, but also for each single domain that you host. This can be done with just one single click through our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel via which all accounts are administered, so you won’t need to possess any technical or coding capabilities. You’ll be able to run sites built with both old and new PHP-based scripts without having to deal with any complications, so if you decide to abandon your present hosting company and move over to us, you can be sure that all the sites that you have developed throughout the years will continue to run faultlessly.

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

Even if your websites were created with an older version of PHP, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support several versions running simultaneously on our servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with just a click from our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition to the most recent PHP 7, we also offer support for 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4, which has already been dropped by the vast majority of web hosting companies, but we trust that you should not be forced to modify a site that took years to set up, as older scripting language syntax does not automatically mean security weaknesses. Just the opposite, a correctly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than a non-maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we will also provide you with the opportunity to choose a different version of PHP for each website within your account.
