PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, commonly referred to as PHP, is a popular server-side scripting language, which can be used to develop dynamic sites with interactive components like Internet forums, online learning websites or community websites. In contrast with static HTML websites, a PHP-driven site can display different content to each visitor under the same URL. As PHP-based web-based apps can be managed through one single Control Panel, which you can access from any Internet browser, you will not need to have any computer programming abilities or previous experience to run a PHP-driven site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the world are PHP-based is an indication of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You should only ensure that the web server where you host your site 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 Website Hosting

With our Linux website hosting, you will be able to choose the version of PHP that will be active for your account, since different versions are activated on our servers. With just one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is released in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous ones. In this way, you will be able to host all the sites that you have developed through the years. In contrast to a lot of other hosting suppliers, we will not compel you to update such sites, as a script may be outdated, but this does not mean that it is vulnerable since you may have tweaked its code to repair safety breaches. For your convenience’s sake, you’ll even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each individual site hosted in your account.

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

Our semi-dedicated hosting support multiple PHP versions, so you will be able to use all the web apps that you’ve set up throughout the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with every semi-dedicated account, will enable you to activate the required version with one mouse click. You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. In case you wish to host multiple sites under the very same account and they have diverse requirements as to the web hosting platform, you will be able to set a different PHP version for each of them regardless of which version has been enabled for the account as a whole. That’s achievable thanks to our custom-created cloud platform, which allows us to run multiple versions of PHP all at once. By comparison, most web hosting companies normally support one, in very rare cases – two versions.
