PHP is one of the most widely used server-side coding languages. It’s pretty popular because it’s free software, which you can use to create interactive websites such as social networking websites, Internet shops or e-learning websites instead of static HTML-based sites. A PHP module should be enabled on the server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘decoded’. As there are no license taxes for this sort of module and the language itself offers infinite possibilities for the Internet apps that you create, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites. What is more, there’re a large number of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to have any coding abilities. As there’re a few versions of PHP, you must make certain that the very same version that you used while creating your website is installed on the web server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Hosting
We have made a decision not to prevent our present and future customers from picking what PHP version their sites will be using, which suggests that if you buy a shared hosting plan from us, you’ll be able to pick between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the account itself, but also for each domain name hosted by you. This can be accomplished with only one single click of the mouse from our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared hosting accounts are administered, so you won’t need any coding or technical know-how. You’ll be able to manage sites built with both old and new PHP scripts without having to deal with any predicaments, so if you’d like to leave your present web hosting company and migrate over to us, you can rest assured that all the websites that you have built through the years will continue to run properly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Even if your websites were created with an older version of PHP, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support several versions running at the same time on our servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with no more than one click of the mouse from our in-house developed Hepsia 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 most web hosting suppliers, but we are convinced that you should not be compelled to modify a website that took several years to create, as older script language syntax doesn’t necessarily mean safety holes. Just the opposite, an adequately maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than an incompetently maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we will also offer you the opportunity to select a different PHP version for each individual site within the account.
