PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, otherwise called PHP, is a famous interpreted programming language, which can be used to build dynamic sites with interactive elements such as forums, online teaching portals or community websites. In stark contrast with static HTML websites, a PHP-powered site can serve different content to each visitor under the very same page URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based web apps can be managed via a Control Panel, which you can log onto from any browser, you will not need any web development knowledge or previous experience to maintain a PHP site. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites all over the world are created in PHP is an indication of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You should only verify whether the web server on which your website is hosted supports the exact same PHP version as the one that you used while building the site.

With our Linux hosting, you’ll be able to select which version of PHP will be enabled for your hosting account, since different versions are enabled on our servers. With only one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4 and whenever a new version is published in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the older ones. Thus, you will be able to host all the websites that you have developed through the years. In contrast to many other web hosting vendors, we won’t force you to update such sites, as a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s insecure as you may have performed modifications to its source code to plug security gaps. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to set a different version of PHP for each single site that you host in your account.
