PHP, which is an initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most popular class-based programming languages that are available out there. Any website or web-based app created with PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language truly universal and it’s not really a huge surprise that there are actually a couple of million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites hosted on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it enables you to set up an interactive website with lots of different options. A PHP-based community web portal, for example, will display unique web content to each visitor even though the URL will stay unchanged. By contrast, HTML websites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the version that was used while building a specific website must be set up on the web server in order for the site to run faultlessly.

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

We have decided not to restrict our current and prospective clients from choosing the PHP version that their websites will be using, which implies that in case you get a cloud website hosting plan from our company, you’ll be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the hosting account in general, but also for each single domain name that you host. This can be accomplished with just one single mouse click from our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared hosting accounts are managed, which is why you will not have to possess any programming or technical abilities. You’ll be able to run sites based on both old and new PHP scripts without having to deal with any problems, so if you want to leave your present web hosting provider and switch over to us, you can be certain that all the sites that you’ve built throughout the years will continue to work correctly.

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

Even if your sites were built with an older version of PHP, 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 servers and each one of them can be activated for your account with just a click through our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. Other than the newest PHP 7, we also support 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been dropped by most hosting vendors, but we deem that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a website that took several years to set up, as older programming language syntax doesn’t always suggest security loopholes. On the contrary, an adequately maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a badly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we will also provide you with the opportunity to specify a different version for each site within the account.
