PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly called PHP, is a famous open-source server-side scripting language, which is used to create dynamic sites with interactive components like discussion boards, online teaching portals or social networking sites. In contrast to static HTML-based sites, a PHP-powered website can serve different web content to each user under the same URL. As PHP-based Internet applications can be managed via one single Control Panel, which you can log in to using any Internet browser, you won’t need to have any web development knowledge or practical experience whatsoever in order to maintain a PHP-powered website. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites all over the globe are built on PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You must only confirm whether the web server on which your website is hosted supports the same PHP version as the one that you used whilst building the website.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Website Hosting
With our Linux shared website hosting packages, you will be able to select the PHP version that will be enabled for your shared account, as different versions are enabled on our servers. With only one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and every time a new version is introduced in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the older versions. Thus, you will be able to host all the sites that you’ve created through the years. Unlike lots of other hosting companies, we won’t compel you to update such sites, as a script may be out of date, but this does not mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have modified its source code to repair safety holes. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to set a different version of PHP for each individual website that you host in your hosting account.
