PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, commonly referred to as PHP, is a famous open-source scripting language, which is used to set up dynamic websites with interactive elements like bulletin boards, online teaching portals or community sites. In comparison to static HTML websites, a PHP-driven website can display unique content to each visitor under the same exact URL. As PHP-based applications can be managed via one Control Panel, which you can sign in to from any browser, you won’t have to possess any web development knowledge or practical experience whatsoever to run a PHP-driven site. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites all over the globe are created with PHP is an indication of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You must only confirm whether the web server on which your website is hosted supports the very same version of PHP as the one that you used whilst building the website.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which implies that your sites will run without any problem no matter if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We know that an old site doesn’t automatically equal a vulnerable one as you may have done plenty of code mods. This is the reason why we support PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4 and you can select which one will be active for your account. The version can be changed with one click of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will take effect instantly. If you wish to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even an option to use a different version of PHP for each domain of yours simultaneously.
