PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also called PHP, is a popular general-purpose programming language, which is used to create dynamic websites with interactive components such as forums, online learning sites or social networking sites. In comparison with static HTML sites, a PHP website can show unique web content to each visitor under the exact same page URL. As PHP-based Internet applications can be managed via one Control Panel tool, which you can log on to from any Internet browser, you won’t need to possess any web design knowledge or previous experience whatsoever to maintain a PHP-powered site. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites worldwide are created in PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You must only verify whether the server where you host your website supports the same PHP version as the one that you used while building the website.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Web Hosting
We’ve made a decision not to prevent our present and prospective customers from picking the PHP version that will be used by their sites, which means 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 account itself, but also for each individual domain name hosted by you. This can be done with just one click from our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all hosting accounts are administered, which is why you won’t need any coding or technical expertise. You will be able to run websites built with both old and new PHP-based scripts without having to cope with any difficulties, so if you decide to change your present web hosting vendor and migrate over to us, you can rest assured that all the websites that you have built over the years will continue to work flawlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’ve got a website built using an older PHP version and you have devoted time and efforts to setting it up, repairing security breaches and embedding web content, you’ll need to find a hosting service that can support it, since most hosting companies these days support only the most recent PHP version and give up the previous versions. We, however, have decided to let you pick the exact version that your websites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which implies that you will be able to run both older and newer scripts without losing any custom settings or misspending time and energy trying to make your sites compatible with the hosting environment. You can change the version through the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will affect the whole account, but you will also be able to specify a different version for each site that you host in your account using an .htaccess config file.
