PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, typically referred to as PHP, is a popular general-purpose web programming language, which can be used to build dynamic websites with interactive components like message boards, e-learning sites or social networking sites. In contrast with static HTML-based sites, a PHP site can serve unique content to each visitor under the same URL. Since PHP-based applications can be managed through a Control Panel, which you can sign in to using any Internet browser, you won’t have to possess any programming knowledge or previous experience in order to administer a PHP-driven website. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the world are PHP-based is an indication of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You only ought to verify if the web server on which your website is hosted supports the very same PHP version as the one that you used while setting up the site.

In this way, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you have set up throughout the years.

For your convenience’s sake, you will even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each individual website hosted in your web hosting account.
