PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, otherwise called PHP, is a popular web programming language, which can be used to create dynamic websites with interactive components such as discussion boards, e-learning websites or community websites. In contrast to static HTML websites, a PHP-powered website can display unique web content to each visitor under the same exact URL. Because of the fact that PHP-based Internet apps can be managed through a single Control Panel, which you can sign onto from any Internet browser, you won’t need any computer programming capabilities or previous experience in order to maintain a PHP-powered site. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites around the world are built using PHP is an indication of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You should only confirm whether the web server on which your website is hosted supports the exact same version of PHP as the one that you used whilst building the website.

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

Our shared hosting servers support different PHP versions, which suggests that your websites will run without any problems no matter if your PHP scripts are outdated. We recognize the fact that an old website doesn’t invariably equal a vulnerable one as you may have carried out lots of mods to its code. That’s the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can choose which one will be enabled for your shared hosting account. The version can be changed with one single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will take effect instantly. In case you want to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even an option to use a different PHP version for each of your domains at the same time.

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

Even in case 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 several versions running at the same time on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be activated for your account with just a click of the mouse via our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. Other than the most recent PHP 7, we also support 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been dropped by most web hosting vendors, but we are strongly convinced that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a site that took several years to develop, since older script language syntax doesn’t invariably suggest security weaknesses. Quite the opposite, a rightly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than an incorrectly maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also give you the opportunity to pick a different PHP version for each individual site within the account.
