PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, otherwise known as PHP, is a famous web development language, which is used to build dynamic websites with interactive elements such as bulletin boards, online learning websites or social networks. In stark contrast with static HTML-based sites, a PHP-powered site can display different content to each visitor under the same exact page URL. As PHP-based web-based applications can be managed through a Control Panel, which you can access using any browser, you will not have to possess any web design capabilities or previous experience whatsoever in order to run a PHP site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites all over the globe are created using PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You must only confirm whether the server on which your site is hosted 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 Shared Website Hosting

In case you get a shared website hosting plan from us, you won’t ever need to ask yourself whether or not your websites are compatible with the web hosting environment, since multiple PHP versions are supported on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to select PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with just one click and in case you need to change the current version, the new settings will take effect momentarily. In this way, several years of work on websites created with an older PHP version won’t go down the drain. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, so you can run older and newer scripts at the same time. Most web hosting providers on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two PHP versions. In contrast with them, we strongly hold that you should be the one to choose the version that your very own sites will use.

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

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support multiple versions of PHP, so you’ll be able to use all the web-based applications that you’ve created over the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with every account, will permit you to activate the version that you need with one single click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. In case you would like to host multiple websites in the very same account and they have special requirements respecting the hosting environment, you will be able to specify a different PHP version for each and every one of them no matter which version is enabled for the account as a whole. That’s accomplishable owing to our custom-built cloud web hosting platform, which permits us to run different PHP versions simultaneously. In contrast, most web hosting providers typically offer one, in rare cases – two versions.
