PHP, which is a backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most commonly used server-side coding languages that are available out there. Any website or app written in PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language really universal and it’s not very surprising that there are actually several million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it allows you to build a dynamic serving site with plenty of different options. A PHP-based community website, for instance, will show unique web content to each user despite the fact that the page URL will stay the same. In comparison, HTML-based sites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst setting up a particular website must be enabled on the server in order for the site to behave properly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Hosting
We’ve made a decision not to restrict our present and potential clients from choosing what PHP version their sites will use, which suggests that if you purchase a shared hosting plan from us, you will be able to select between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the account as a whole, but also for each domain name hosted by you. This can be accomplished with only one click of the mouse from our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel via which all accounts are administered, which is why you will not need to possess any technical or coding know-how. You’ll be able to host websites based on both old and new scripts without having to deal with any hindrances, so if you would like to leave your current hosting services provider and switch over to us, you can rest assured that all the websites that you have created through the years will continue to run impeccably.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Even in case your websites were built with an earlier PHP version, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support several versions running at the same time on our servers and each one of them can be activated for your account with just one click through our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. Aside from the latest PHP 7, we also support 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been abandoned by the great majority of web hosting suppliers, but we reckon that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a site that took years to build, since older programming language syntax does not invariably equal security breaches. Quite the opposite, a well-maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an inadequately maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we will also give you the possibility to select a different PHP version for each single website within your account.
