PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly called PHP, is a popular coding language, which is used to create dynamic sites with interactive elements such as Internet forums, online teaching websites or community web portals. In comparison with static HTML sites, a PHP-powered site can show different web content to each visitor under the exact same page URL. Given the fact that PHP-based applications can be managed through a single Control Panel tool, which you can log on to from any Internet browser, you will not have to possess any computer programming experience or prior experience whatsoever to run a PHP-driven site. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites around the globe are created using PHP is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You should only verify if the server where you host your site supports the exact same PHP version as the one that you used whilst building the website.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Hosting

In case you buy a hosting plan from our company, you won’t ever have to ponder on whether your sites are compatible with the web hosting environment, as different versions of PHP are installed on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to choose PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 or 4 with only one single click and if you want to change the current version, the new settings will be applied instantly. Thus, years of work on sites built with an older version of PHP won’t go down the tube. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which suggests that you can use older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most hosting providers on the market offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. In stark contrast to them, we strongly hold that you should be the one to choose the version that will be used by your very own sites.
