PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, commonly called PHP, is a famous class-based programming language, which is used to create dynamic sites with interactive components such as discussion boards, e-teaching sites or social networking websites. In comparison to static HTML-based sites, a PHP website can display unique content to each visitor under the same exact page URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based web applications can be managed through one Control Panel tool, which you can sign in to using any web browser, you will not need any web design skills or prior experience whatsoever in order to administer a PHP-powered website. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites worldwide are built with PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You should only verify whether the server where you host your website supports the same exact version of PHP as the one that you used whilst setting up the website.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Hosting
With our Linux hosting, you’ll be able to pick the version of PHP that will be active for your hosting account, as different versions are activated on our servers. With only one click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is released in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the previous versions. In this way, you will be able to host all the websites that you have created over the years. Unlike many other hosting suppliers, we won’t force you to update such sites, because a script may be outdated, but this does not necessarily mean that it’s insecure since you may have carried out modifications to its source code to fix safety breaches. For the sake of your convenience, you’ll even be able to choose a different version of PHP for each single site hosted in your shared account.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Even if 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 several versions running at the same time on our servers and each one of them can be activated for your account with no more than one click through our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Other than the latest PHP 7, we also support 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4, which has already been dropped by the majority of web hosting providers, but we hold that you should not be compelled to modify a website that took several years to build, since older script language syntax does not automatically imply safety gaps. Quite the opposite, an adequately maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than a poorly maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also offer you the opportunity to choose a different version for each single site within your account.
