PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly known as PHP, is a popular general-purpose server-side coding language, which is used to create dynamic websites with interactive features such as discussion boards, e-teaching portals or community web portals. In stark contrast with static HTML sites, a PHP site can show unique content to each visitor under the same URL. Due to the fact that PHP-based web apps can be managed through one single Control Panel tool, which you can log on to from any Internet browser, you will not need to have any computer programming knowledge or past experience to maintain a PHP site. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites all over the world are built on PHP is an indication of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You must only make certain that the server where you host your website supports the exact same PHP version as the one that you used while building the website.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Website Hosting
With our Linux website hosting, you’ll be able to select the version of PHP that will be active for your hosting account, since different versions are supported on our servers. With only one click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is launched in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you have created over the years. In stark contrast with many other hosting providers, we won’t force you to update such sites, because a script may be out of date, but this does not automatically mean that it is insecure as you may have implemented modifications to its source code to plug safety holes. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to pick a different PHP version for each individual site that you host in your shared account.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you’ve got a website built with an older PHP version and you have dedicated time and effort into setting it up, filling safety breaches and publishing page content, you’ll need a hosting service that can support it, as the majority of hosting providers these days offer support only for the most recent PHP version and give up the older versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to allow you to pick the exact version that your own sites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which implies that you’ll be able to run both newer and older scripts without losing any custom tweaks or wasting time and efforts trying to make your websites compatible with the web hosting platform. The version can be changed through the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will affect the whole semi-dedicated server account, but you’ll also be able to set a different PHP version for each individual site that you host in your account by using an .htaccess file.
