PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly referred to as PHP, is a popular dynamic programming language, which is used to develop dynamic sites with interactive components like discussion boards, e-learning portals or community web portals. In contrast to static HTML-based websites, a PHP website can display unique web content to each visitor under the exact same URL. Because PHP-based apps can be managed through a single Control Panel tool, which you can log in to using any web browser, you won’t have to possess any web development skills or previous experience in order to run a PHP site. The fact that 100s of millions of websites around the world are built on PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You must only check whether the server where you host your website supports the very same version of PHP as the one that you used whilst building the site.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Web Hosting

With our web hosting, you’ll be able to pick which version of PHP will be active for your hosting account, as multiple versions are enabled on our servers. With just one mouse click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and every time a new version is introduced in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older ones. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you have set up over the years. In contrast to a lot of other companies, we won’t force you to update such websites, because a script may be out of date, but this does not automatically mean that it is insecure as you may have done modifications to its source code to fix safety loopholes. For your convenience’s sake, you’ll even be able to choose a different PHP version for each individual site hosted in your shared account.
