PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, usually called PHP, is a popular general-purpose programming language, which can be used to develop dynamic sites with interactive elements such as Internet forums, online learning portals or social networking sites. In stark contrast to static HTML-based sites, a PHP-driven site can show unique content to each visitor under the very same page URL. Due to the fact that PHP-based applications can be managed via one Control Panel tool, which you can log into from any web browser, you will not have to possess any programming expertise or past experience whatsoever in order to run a PHP-driven website. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites worldwide are created in PHP is an indication of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You should only check whether the server where you host your website supports the very same PHP version as the one that you used whilst developing the website.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Web Hosting
We have made the decision not to restrict our current and prospective customers from selecting what PHP version their websites will use, which implies that if you order a shared web hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account in general, but also for each individual domain that you host. This can be accomplished with just one single click through our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all accounts are administered, which is why you won’t have to possess any coding or technical experience. You’ll be able to host websites built with both new and old PHP scripts without a problem, so if you decide to leave your current web hosting company and move over to us, you can be sure that all the sites that you have built throughout the years will continue to work faultlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’ve got a site built on a previous version of PHP and you have donated time and efforts toward developing it, fixing safety holes and inserting web page content, you will need to find a hosting service that can support it, since the majority of hosting providers these days offer only the most recently introduced PHP version and drop the earlier ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to allow you to choose the exact version that your own sites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which implies that you will be able to run both older and newer scripts without losing any custom modifications or frittering away time and efforts attempting to make your websites compatible with the hosting environment. You can change the version from the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will affect the entire semi-dedicated account, but you will also be able to choose a different version of PHP for each individual site hosted in your account by using an .htaccess file.
