PHP, which stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most popular multiparadigm programming languages that are available out there. Any site or web app created in PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language really universal and it isn’t really all that surprising that there are a few million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it allows you to develop a dynamic website with a huge number of features. A PHP-based community web portal, for instance, will display unique content to each visitor although the page URL won’t change. In comparison, HTML websites are static and the content on the pages can be updated only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the one that was used while developing a particular website must be set up on the server in order for the site to behave correctly.

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

We have made the decision not to prevent our present and future clients from picking the PHP version that will be used by their sites, which implies that in case you purchase a shared web hosting plan from our company, you will be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the account in general, but also for each individual domain that you host. This can be accomplished with just one mouse click from our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel via which all accounts are managed, which is why you won’t need any technical or coding experience. You’ll be able to run sites built with both old and new PHP scripts without having to overcome any complications, so if you’d like to swap your present provider and migrate over to us, you can rest assured that all the websites that you’ve set up over the years will continue to work faultlessly.

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

In case you have a website based on an earlier PHP version and you have contributed time and effort towards developing it, repairing safety gaps and appending content, you’ll need to find a web hosting service that can support it, as the great majority of hosting companies these days support only the most recently unveiled PHP version and give up the older versions. We, however, have decided to permit you to choose the exact version that your very own sites need. Our semi-dedicated plans support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which goes to say that you will be able to run both newer and older scripts without losing any manual settings or misspending time and effort trying to make your websites compatible with the web hosting environment. The current version can be changed through the Hepsia Control Panel and such a change will apply to the whole semi-dedicated server account, but you’ll also have the ability to set a different PHP version for each single site hosted in your account using an .htaccess file.
