PHP, which is a recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most commonly used server-side coding languages out there. Any website or web-based application built with PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is installed, which renders the language absolutely universal and it’s not unusual that there are several million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it enables you to set up a dynamic website with an abundance of different features. A PHP-based community website, for instance, will display unique web content to each visitor even though the page URL will remain unchanged. In contrast, HTML sites are static and the page content can be updated only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst building a specific website must be enabled on the web server in order for the site to behave flawlessly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Hosting

With our shared hosting, you’ll be able to choose the version of PHP that will be enabled for your hosting account, as multiple versions are enabled on our servers. With just one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4 and anytime a new version is published in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older versions. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you have built through the years. In contrast to many other hosting companies, we won’t compel you to update such sites, as a script may be out of date, but this does not mean that it is vulnerable since you may have carried out modifications to its code to patch security holes. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to pick a different PHP version for each website hosted in your hosting account.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

It’s our firm belief that several years spent developing a site should not go down the drain, which goes to say that if you buy a semi-dedicated server from our company, you will be able to run any script, no matter if it is new or old. In contrast to a lot of web hosting suppliers, we support a number of different versions of PHP on our ground-breaking cloud web hosting platform – 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Not only will you have the ability to enable the version that you need via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you’ll also have the option to select a different version for each website. The latter can be done merely by placing an .htaccess file within the given site’s root folder. You can change the version both for a single site and for the account itself and the update will be applied in just a few minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be sure that you won’t ever have any site incompatibility obstacles.
