PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly referred to as PHP, is a famous general-purpose web programming language, which is used to build dynamic sites with interactive components like bulletin boards, e-learning websites or social networks. In contrast with static HTML-based websites, a PHP-driven website can show unique content to each user under the same page URL. Given the fact that PHP-based web apps can be managed via one single Control Panel tool, which you can sign in to using any online browser, you will not need to have any programming capabilities or prior experience to maintain a PHP-driven website. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the globe are created using PHP is indicative of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only need to ensure that the web server on which your site is hosted supports the same exact PHP version as the one that you used whilst building the site.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Hosting
With our Linux cloud hosting, you will be able to choose which version of PHP will be enabled for your hosting account, as we offer support for different versions. With only one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is introduced in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the older ones. Thus, you will be able to host all the sites that you have set up throughout the years. In contrast with a lot of other companies, we won’t force you to update such websites, because a script may be out of date, but this does not necessarily mean that it’s insecure as you may have modified its code to fix security loopholes. For your convenience, you will even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each site hosted in your web hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Even if your websites were created with an earlier version of PHP, you’ll 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 of them can be activated for your account with just a click via our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Besides the latest PHP 7, we also offer 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been abandoned by the majority of web hosting vendors, but we strongly deem that you should not be compelled to modify a website that took years to develop, since older script language syntax doesn’t always suggest safety loopholes. On the contrary, a rightly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than a mismaintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we will also offer you the opportunity to set a different version for each website within your account.
