PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also known as PHP, is a popular open-source web programming language, which can be used to develop dynamic websites with interactive features like discussion boards, e-teaching sites or community sites. In contrast with static HTML-based sites, a PHP website can show different content to each user under the exact same page URL. Given the fact that PHP-based web-based apps can be managed through one single Control Panel, which you can log in to using any web browser, you won’t need to possess any web design knowledge or practical experience whatsoever to administer a PHP-driven site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the globe are created in PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only ought to verify whether the web server where you host your website supports the same PHP version as the one that you used while creating the site.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Hosting
In case you buy a cloud hosting package from us, you’ll never have to think about whether your sites are compatible with the hosting environment, as we support several PHP versions for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to select PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with just one single click of the mouse and if you want to change the version, the update will be applied right away. Thus, many years of work on sites created with an older PHP version won’t be lost. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can run newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most hosting providers on the marketplace offer support for one, sometimes for two versions of PHP. In contrast to them, we consider that you should be the one to pick the version that your own websites will be using.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Even if your sites were created with an earlier PHP version, 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 of the mouse from our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Other than the newest PHP 7, we also offer support for 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4, which has already been dropped by the great majority of web hosting companies, but we deem that you should not be compelled to modify a site that took years to set up, since older script language syntax does not invariably imply safety flaws. Quite the opposite, an adequately maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a mismaintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we’ll also provide you with the possibility to choose a different version for each website within the account.
