PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also called PHP, is a famous programming language, which is used to set up dynamic websites with interactive components such as message boards, online teaching portals or community web portals. In stark contrast to static HTML-based sites, a PHP site can serve different web content to each user under the exact same URL. Given the fact that PHP-based Internet applications can be managed through a Control Panel tool, which you can log onto using any online browser, you won’t need to possess any computer programming capabilities or prior experience whatsoever in order to administer a PHP-driven site. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites all over the globe are PHP-based is an indication of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only need to confirm whether or not the server where you host your site supports the same exact PHP version as the one that you used while creating the site.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers support several versions of PHP, so your sites will run faultlessly even if your scripts are out of date. We accept the fact that an old website doesn’t necessarily mean an insecure one as you may have implemented plenty of code modifications. That is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can pick which one will be active for your account. The version can be changed with one single click of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied straight away. If you’d like to run both newer and older scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each domain of yours simultaneously.

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

Even in case your websites were created with an older PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support multiple versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each one of them can be activated for your account with just a click of the mouse through our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Besides the latest PHP 7, we also support 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been dropped by the majority of web hosts, but we are strongly convinced that you should not be forced to modify a site that took years to build, as older programming language syntax does not always imply security holes. On the contrary, a properly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an incorrectly maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also provide you with the possibility to choose a different PHP version for each single site within the account.
