PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, otherwise known as PHP, is a famous server-side programming language, which is used to develop dynamic websites with interactive features such as discussion forums, online learning websites or social networks. In contrast to static HTML-based sites, a PHP-driven site can serve different web content to each user under the same exact page URL. Since PHP-based Internet applications can be managed through one single Control Panel, which you can access using any Internet browser, you won’t need to possess any web design skills or practical experience to administer a PHP website. The fact that 100s of millions of sites all over the world are created in PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You must only verify whether or not the web server where you host your website supports the exact same PHP version as the one that you used while setting up the site.

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

Our shared hosting servers support different PHP versions, so your sites will run without any problems even if your scripts are outdated. We realize that an old site does not always suggest a vulnerable one as you may have performed a lot of code mods. That is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can select which version will be active for your account. The version can be changed with just one single click via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will be applied right away. In case you wish to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each domain name of yours simultaneously.

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

In case you’ve got a website based on a previous PHP version and you’ve dedicated time and effort toward developing it, filling safety loopholes and adding content, you will need to find a hosting service that can support it, as nearly all hosting suppliers nowadays offer only the newest PHP version and remove the previous ones. We, however, have decided to permit you to pick the version that your own websites require. Our semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which implies that you’ll be able to run both older and newer scripts without losing any manual modifications or frittering away time and effort struggling to make your sites compatible with the hosting platform. You can change the current version from the Hepsia Control Panel and such a change will affect the whole semi-dedicated account, but you will also have the ability to pick a different version for each individual website that you host in your account by using an .htaccess config file.
