PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, usually called PHP, is a popular general-purpose web programming language, which is used to build dynamic websites with interactive features like Internet forums, e-learning websites or social networking sites. Unlike static HTML sites, a PHP site can show unique web content to each visitor under the very same page URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based web-based apps can be managed via a single Control Panel tool, which you can access using any web browser, you won’t need to have any computer programming knowledge or practical experience to administer a PHP site. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites all over the world are built on PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You only have to verify that the web server where you host your website supports the same PHP version as the one that you used while building the site.

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

We’ve decided not to restrict our current and future customers from picking what PHP version will be used by their websites, which implies that in case you get a shared web hosting plan from our company, you will be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the hosting account itself, but also for each single domain name hosted by you. This can be done with just one single click of the mouse through our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all shared accounts are administered, which is why you will not need to possess any coding or technical know-how. You’ll be able to run websites based on both new and old PHP-based scripts without having to deal with any hindrances, so if you’d like to leave your present hosting supplier and migrate over to us, you can rest assured that all the websites that you’ve built through the years will continue to run correctly.

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

Even in case your sites were created with an older version of PHP, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support multiple versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be activated for your account with just a click of the mouse via our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. Besides the most recent PHP 7, we also offer 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been abandoned by the majority of web hosting vendors, but we are strongly convinced that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a website that took years to build, since older programming language syntax doesn’t necessarily imply safety breaches. On the contrary, a correctly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an inadequately maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we will also give you the possibility to specify a different PHP version for each website within the account.
