PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also known as PHP, is a popular reflective programming language, which can be used to develop dynamic websites with interactive features like forums, e-teaching portals or social networks. Unlike static HTML-based websites, a PHP-powered site can show different content to each visitor under the exact same URL. Because PHP-based Internet apps can be managed through one Control Panel, which you can sign on to using any online browser, you will not need to possess any web development knowledge or previous experience to administer a PHP-powered website. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites all over the world are created using PHP is indicative of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only need to check if the server on which your site is hosted supports the exact same version of PHP as the one that you used while developing the website.

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

Our shared hosting servers support several PHP versions, which suggests that your sites will work without any problems even if your PHP scripts are out of date. We know that an old website doesn’t invariably suggest an insecure one as you may have performed a lot of modifications to its source code. That is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can select which version will be active for your shared hosting account. The version can be changed with just one click of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will take effect instantaneously. In case you wish to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even an option to use a different PHP version for each of your domain names simultaneously.

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

Even in case your websites were created with an older version of PHP, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support multiple versions running at the same time on our servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with just one click through our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition to the latest PHP 7, we also support 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been dropped by the majority of web hosting companies, but we reckon that you should not be forced to modify a site that took several years to create, since older script language syntax does not inevitably equal safety flaws. Just the opposite, a well-maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than a poorly maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we will also offer you the opportunity to choose a different version for each individual site within the account.
