PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly called PHP, is a popular open-source server-side programming language, which is used to set up dynamic websites with interactive features like discussion boards, online teaching portals or community websites. In contrast to static HTML sites, a PHP site can show unique content to each user under the same exact URL. Given the fact that PHP-based web apps can be managed through a Control Panel tool, which you can log on to using any web browser, you will not need to possess any programming abilities or past experience whatsoever in order to run a PHP-driven site. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites around the world are built on PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You should only verify whether or not the web server on which your website is hosted supports the same exact version of PHP as the one that you used whilst setting up the site.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Hosting

With our shared hosting, you will be able to select which PHP version will be active for your hosting account, since several versions are activated on our servers. With as little as one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and each time a new version is released in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older ones. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you’ve developed throughout the years. In contrast to a lot of other web hosting companies, we will not force you to update such sites, because a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it is vulnerable as you may have carried out modifications to its source code to plug security gaps. For your convenience, you will even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each individual website that you host in your account.
