PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, usually referred to as PHP, is a popular dynamic programming language, which is used to develop dynamic websites with interactive features such as discussion boards, school websites or social networking websites. In stark contrast with static HTML sites, a PHP site can display different web content to each user under the same exact URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based web applications can be managed through one Control Panel, which you can log onto from any browser, you will not have to possess any web development expertise or previous experience whatsoever in order to maintain a PHP site. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites around the world are created with PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You must only confirm whether or not the web server where you host your website supports the same version of PHP as the one that you used while creating the site.

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

Our cloud hosting servers support different PHP versions, so your sites will run properly no matter if your scripts are outdated. We accept the fact that an old site doesn’t automatically suggest an insecure one as you may have implemented plenty of source code modifications. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can choose which version will be enabled for your account. The version can be changed with only one click from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will take effect instantly. In case you wish to run both older and newer scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domains simultaneously.

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

Even if your websites were built with an earlier version of PHP, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support different versions running at the same time on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be activated for your account with no more than one click of the mouse through our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. Besides the most recent PHP 7, we also offer 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4, which has already been abandoned by the majority of hosting companies, but we strongly believe that you should not be compelled to modify a site that took years to build, since older scripting language syntax does not always mean security loopholes. Quite the opposite, a correctly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a wrongly maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also give you the possibility to choose a different PHP version for each individual website within the account.
