PHP, which is an acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most widely used server-side programming languages out there. Any site or web application created in PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language really universal and it isn’t very surprising that there are actually a couple of million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it allows you to build an interactive website with many different features. A PHP-based community portal, for instance, will show different content to each visitor although the URL will remain the same. By contrast, HTML sites are static and the page content can be updated only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while building a specific website must be available on the server in order for the site to behave correctly.

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

We’ve made the decision not to restrict our present and potential customers from choosing the PHP version that will be used by their sites, which goes to say that if you order a shared hosting plan from our company, you will be able to select between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the account itself, but also for each domain name that you host. This can be accomplished with only one click from our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel via which all accounts are administered, which is why you won’t need to possess any coding or technical know-how. You will be able to run websites built with both old and new PHP scripts without trouble, so if you wish to leave your current hosting vendor and migrate over to us, you can be certain that all the websites that you have built through the years will continue to run impeccably.

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

Even in case your websites were built with an earlier PHP version, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support different versions running at the same time on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be activated for your account with just a click via our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. Apart from the most recent PHP 7, we also offer support for 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4, which has already been abandoned by most hosting suppliers, but we are convinced that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a website that took several years to develop, as older script language syntax doesn’t inevitably suggest security vulnerabilities. Just the opposite, a properly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than an incorrectly maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also give you the possibility to pick a different version for each website within your account.
