PHP, which is a bacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most popular multi-paradigm programming languages out there. Any site or Internet app built on PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language absolutely universal and it’s not very surprising that there are several million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it enables you to develop a dynamic site with many features. A PHP-based community site, for instance, will serve different web content to each user although the page URL won’t change. In contrast, HTML-based websites are static and the page content can be updated only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while developing a certain website must be present on the web server so that the site can run faultlessly.

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

With our shared hosting packages, you will be able to choose the PHP version that will be active for your shared account, since different versions are supported on our servers. With just one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is introduced in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous versions. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you’ve set up through the years. In stark contrast to a lot of other web hosting companies, we won’t force you to update such websites, because a script may be outdated, but this does not automatically mean that it is insecure since you may have implemented modifications to its code to fill security gaps. For the sake of your convenience, you’ll even be able to pick a different PHP version for each individual website that you host in your account.

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

It is our unswerving opinion that years spent creating a site shouldn’t be lost, which goes to say that in case you purchase a semi-dedicated server from our company, you will be able to run any script, new or old. In contrast with many hosting suppliers, we support several different versions of PHP on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only be able to activate the version that you need via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you’ll also have the opportunity to choose a different version for each individual website. The latter can be accomplished simply by placing an .htaccess file in the root folder of the given site. You can change the version both for a single website and for the whole account and the update will be applied in only a couple of minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be certain that you will never face any site incompatibility impediments.
