PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, usually called PHP, is a famous open-source server-side programming language, which is used to set up dynamic sites with interactive elements like forums, e-teaching portals or community sites. In comparison with static HTML websites, a PHP-driven website can serve different content to each user under the same exact URL. Since PHP-based Internet apps can be managed via a Control Panel, which you can access using any Internet browser, you will not need any programming skills or prior experience in order to administer a PHP-driven website. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites around the world are built using PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only need to ensure that the web server on which your website is hosted supports the very same PHP version as the one that you used whilst creating the website.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Web Hosting
With our web hosting
, you’ll be able to pick which version of PHP will be enabled for your account, as different versions are installed on our servers. With as little as one click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is launched in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you have set up throughout the years. In contrast to a lot of other web hosting suppliers, we will not force you to update such sites, because a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s insecure since you may have performed modifications to its code to repair security loopholes. For your convenience, you will even be able to specify a different PHP version for each single site hosted in your shared hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’ve got a website built with an earlier PHP version and you’ve put time and efforts towards setting it up, repairing security holes and posting web content, you will need a web hosting service that can support it, since almost all hosting suppliers nowadays support only the most recently published version of PHP and abandon the earlier versions. We, however, have decided to allow you to pick the version that your own sites require. Our semi-dedicated servers
support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which implies that you will be able to use both newer and older scripts without losing any custom settings or wasting time and effort striving to make your websites compatible with the hosting environment. You can change the version from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will affect the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you will also be able to choose a different PHP version for each website hosted in your account by using an .htaccess config file.
