PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also referred to as PHP, is a popular general-purpose scripting language, which is used to develop dynamic websites with interactive features such as message boards, e-learning portals or community sites. In comparison with static HTML-based sites, a PHP-driven site can serve unique content to each user under the very same page URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based apps can be managed through a Control Panel tool, which you can log onto using any browser, you won’t need to have any programming knowledge or past experience whatsoever in order to maintain a PHP-driven site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the globe are created in PHP is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You only ought to verify if the server where you host your website supports the same exact PHP version as the one that you used whilst setting up the site.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Website Hosting
With our Linux website hosting, you’ll be able to choose the version of PHP that will be active for your shared account, as we offer support for different versions.

Thus, you will be able to host all the sites that you’ve developed through the years. In stark contrast to a lot of other web hosting suppliers, we won’t compel you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it’s vulnerable since you may have implemented modifications to its code to fill security holes. For your convenience’s sake, you’ll even be able to choose a different PHP version for each site hosted in your shared account.

You can pick between PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4.
