PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, usually called PHP, is a famous open-source programming language, which is used to create dynamic sites with interactive features like forums, e-learning websites or community websites. In comparison to static HTML sites, a PHP-powered site can serve different web content to each user under the very same page URL. Because PHP-based apps can be managed through a Control Panel tool, which you can sign into from any online browser, you will not have to possess any coding skills or practical experience whatsoever in order to run a PHP-powered site. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites around the world are built using PHP is indicative of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You should only check whether or not the web server on which your website is hosted supports the same version of PHP as the one that you used while developing the site.

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

Our cloud hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which means that your websites will run properly even if your scripts are outdated. We realize that an old site doesn’t necessarily suggest a vulnerable one as you may have done a lot of source code modifications. This is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can decide which one will be active for your shared web hosting account. You can change the version with one single mouse click in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will be applied immediately. In case you want to run both newer and older scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domains at the same time.

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

In case you’ve got a site created in a previous PHP version and you have committed time and effort toward setting it up, filling safety holes and publishing page content, you will need to find a web hosting service that can support it, since most hosting companies today offer support only for the most recently launched PHP version and give up the earlier versions. We, however, have decided to allow you to choose the version that your own sites need. Our semi-dedicated hosting plans support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which means that you will be able to use both newer and older scripts without losing any manual modifications or misspending time and effort struggling to make your websites compatible with the web hosting environment. You can change the version through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will affect the entire semi-dedicated account, but you will also have the ability to pick a different version of PHP for each site that you host in your account by means of an .htaccess configuration file.
