PHP, which is a meta-acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most famous scripting languages that are available out there. Any website or web-based application built with PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language absolutely universal and it’s not a big surprise that there are actually a few million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it enables you to build an interactive website with a large number of options. A PHP-based social networking website, for example, will show unique content to each visitor although the page URL will be the same. In comparison, HTML websites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used while developing a specific website must be configured on the server in order for the site to behave faultlessly.

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

We’ve decided not to restrict our current and future customers from choosing the PHP version that their websites will use, so in case you get a cloud web hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to pick between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the account itself, but also for each individual domain that you host. This can be done with only one mouse click from our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all hosting accounts are administered, which is why you won’t need any coding or technical capabilities. You’ll be able to manage sites based on both new and old PHP scripts without having to cope with any obstructions, so if you decide to abandon your present hosting supplier and switch over to us, you can be sure that all the websites that you’ve set up over the years will continue to work perfectly.

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

Even in case your websites were created with an earlier PHP version, you will 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 semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be activated for your account with just a click via our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Besides the newest PHP 7, we also offer 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4, which has already been dropped by most hosting companies, but we reckon that you should not be forced to modify a website that took several years to build, as older programming language syntax doesn’t inevitably mean security weaknesses. Quite the opposite, an adequately maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than a non-maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we will also offer you the possibility to set a different version for each single website within your account.
