PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, typically referred to as PHP, is a popular programming language, which can be used to build dynamic sites with interactive elements like bulletin boards, e-teaching portals or social networks. In contrast with static HTML-based sites, a PHP-driven website can show different content to each visitor under the very same page URL. Because of the fact that PHP-based apps can be managed via one single Control Panel tool, which you can log onto from any web browser, you won’t need any web development expertise or practical experience whatsoever to run a PHP-powered site. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites around the world are created with PHP is indicative of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only have to check whether or not the web server where you host your site supports the very same PHP version as the one that you used while developing the site.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Web Hosting

With our Linux web hosting, you will be able to choose the version of PHP that will be enabled for your shared account, as several versions are activated on our servers. With as little as one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4 and whenever a new version is published in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older versions. Thus, you will be able to host all the sites that you’ve set up through the years. In contrast with a lot of other hosting suppliers, we won’t compel you to update such sites, as a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it is insecure as you may have performed modifications to its source code to fix safety gaps. For your convenience, you will even be able to set a different version of PHP for each single site hosted in your shared account.
