PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, better known as PHP, is a famous general-purpose scripting language, which can be used to develop dynamic sites with interactive components such as discussion boards, e-learning websites or community web portals. In stark contrast to static HTML-based sites, a PHP-driven website can serve different content to each visitor under the very same URL. Because PHP-based applications can be managed via one single Control Panel tool, which you can log in to using any Internet browser, you will not have to possess any web development expertise or past experience to maintain a PHP-powered website. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites worldwide are created with PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You only need to make certain that the web server on which your website is hosted supports the very same PHP version as the one that you used whilst developing the website.

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

We’ve decided not to restrict our current and potential customers from selecting the PHP version that their sites will use, which means that in case you purchase a cloud hosting plan from us, you’ll be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the account in general, but also for each single domain name that you host. This can be accomplished with only one single mouse click from our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared hosting accounts are managed, which is why you won’t have to possess any programming or technical know-how. You’ll be able to host sites built with both old and new PHP-based scripts without having to overcome any predicaments, so if you’d like to swap your current provider and switch over to us, you can rest assured that all the sites that you have created over the years will continue to work impeccably.

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

If you’ve got a site built on a previous PHP version and you have invested time and energy in setting it up, filling security gaps and publishing page content, you will need a web hosting service that can support it, as almost all web hosting suppliers today offer support only for the most recently published PHP version and abandon the older versions. We, however, have decided to permit you to select the exact version that your own websites require. Our semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which implies that you’ll be able to use both older and newer scripts without forfeiting any manual settings or wasting time and effort striving to make your sites compatible with the hosting environment. You can change the version via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will apply to the whole account, but you will also have the ability to select a different version for each individual website that you host in your account by using an .htaccess config file.
