PHP, which is an acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most widely used multi-paradigm programming languages available out there. Any site or app written in PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language truly universal and it is barely surprising that there are actually a few million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP websites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it permits you to build a dynamic serving site with a multitude of different features. A PHP-based social networking website, for instance, will show unique web content to each visitor irrespective of the fact that the page URL won’t change. By contrast, HTML websites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while creating a given website must be available on the web server in order for the site to behave flawlessly.

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

Our web hosting servers support different PHP versions, which goes to say that your sites will run correctly no matter if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We recognize the fact that an old website doesn’t always imply an insecure one as you may have done plenty of modifications to its source code. That’s the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can choose which version will be active for your shared web hosting account. You can change the version with only one mouse click within your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will take effect instantly. If you’d like to run both older and newer scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domain names at the same time.

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