PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, commonly known as PHP, is a famous open-source programming language, which is used to create dynamic websites with interactive elements like bulletin boards, online teaching sites or social networking sites. In comparison to static HTML-based sites, a PHP-driven website can display unique web content to each visitor under the same URL. Due to the fact that PHP-based Internet apps can be managed via a single Control Panel tool, which you can log into from any browser, you will not have to possess any computer programming knowledge or practical experience in order to administer a PHP-driven website. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites worldwide are created using PHP is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You must only check whether the server on which your website is hosted supports the same exact PHP version as the one that you used while creating the site.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Web Hosting
With our shared web hosting
, you will be able to choose the version of PHP that will be active for your shared web hosting account, since multiple versions are activated on our servers. With as little as one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4 and anytime a new version is introduced in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous ones. Thus, you will be able to host all the websites that you’ve built throughout the years. Unlike lots of other web hosts, we will not compel you to update such sites, because a script may be outdated, but this does not automatically mean that it’s insecure since you may have tweaked its source code to plug safety holes. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each single website hosted in your shared hosting account.
