PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, commonly referred to as PHP, is a popular open-source scripting language, which can be used to set up dynamic sites with interactive components such as discussion boards, online learning sites or community sites. In contrast with static HTML sites, a PHP site can display different content to each user under the same URL. Given the fact that PHP-based applications can be managed via one Control Panel, which you can sign into from any Internet browser, you will not need any computer programming skills or past experience in order to maintain a PHP-powered site. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites all over the world are built with PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You only ought to confirm if the web server where you host your website supports the exact same PHP version as the one that you used whilst developing the site.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Website Hosting
In case you order a website hosting package from us, you will never have to ponder whether or not your websites are compatible with the hosting platform, since we offer support for different versions of PHP for your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to select PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with only one single click and in case you need to change the version, the new settings will take effect instantly. In this way, years of work on websites created with an older version of PHP will not be lost. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, which means that you can run older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most hosting companies on the market support one, sometimes two PHP versions. Unlike them, we strongly think that you should be the one to pick the version that your very own sites will use.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Even in case your websites were built 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 simultaneously on our servers and each one of them can be activated for your account with just one click through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. Other than the most recent PHP 7, we also offer support for 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4, which has already been dropped by most web hosting vendors, but we strongly believe that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a website that took several years to create, as older scripting language syntax does not necessarily equal safety vulnerabilities. On the contrary, a properly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than an unmaintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also provide you with the possibility to choose a different version of PHP for each single site within your account.
