PHP, which is a backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most famous open-source programming languages available out there. Any site or web-based application written in PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language truly universal and it’s no surprise that there are a few million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it allows you to create a dynamic serving site with a huge number of options. A PHP-based community site, for example, will show unique web content to each visitor although the URL will stay the same. In comparison, HTML sites are static and the content on the pages can be updated only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while setting up a certain website must be installed on the server in order for the site to behave faultlessly.

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

We have made a conscious decision not to prevent our current and potential customers from selecting the PHP version that their sites will use, which means that if you purchase a website hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to pick between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the hosting account in general, but also for each individual domain that you host. This can be done with just one single mouse click from our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared accounts are administered, so you won’t need to possess any programming or technical skills. You will be able to run websites built with both new and old PHP scripts without having to cope with any predicaments, so if you wish to change your present hosting services provider and move over to us, you can be certain that all the sites that you’ve built throughout the years will continue to work faultlessly.

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

In case you have a website created using an earlier version of PHP and you’ve committed time and effort towards setting it up, plugging safety gaps and appending content, you will need to find a hosting service that can support it, as most hosting vendors these days support only the most recently unveiled PHP version and drop the earlier versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you select the exact version that your own websites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which goes to say that you will be able to use both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any manual settings or wasting time and energy striving to make your websites compatible with the web hosting platform. The current version can be changed via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will affect the whole account, but you’ll also be able to specify a different version for each single site that you host in your account by means of an .htaccess config file.
