PHP, which is a meta-acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most famous general-purpose server-side programming languages out there. Any website or web-based app created with PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language truly universal and it’s little surprise that there are several million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it allows you to create a responsive website with a plethora of different features. A PHP-based social networking site, for instance, will serve unique web content to each user irrespective of the fact that the URL will stay the same. On the other hand, HTML websites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used while building a particular website must be present on the web server in order for the site to work properly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which means that your sites will work without any problems no matter if your scripts are outdated. We realize that an old site does not always imply an insecure one as you may have performed plenty of modifications to its code. That is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can select which one will be active for your web hosting account. You can change the version with one click of the mouse within your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will be applied instantaneously. If you would like to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each domain of yours simultaneously.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can change the version not only for a single site, but also for the account itself and the change will be applied in just several minutes. With our hosting services, you can rest assured that you won’t ever encounter any site compatibility problems.
