PHP, which is a recursive initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most popular server-side programming languages that are available out there. Any website or web app created using PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is activated, which makes the language absolutely universal and it’s not very surprising that there are a few million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it allows you to create a dynamic website with numerous options. A PHP-based social networking site, for instance, will show unique content to each user even though the page URL will remain the same. In contrast, HTML sites are static and the page content itself can be updated only manually. Like any other software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst developing a specific website must be installed on the web server so that the site can run properly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Website Hosting

We have made the decision not to prevent our current and future clients from choosing the PHP version that their websites will be using, which suggests that in case you order a cloud website hosting plan from us, you will be able to pick between versions 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5, not only for the hosting account itself, but also for each individual domain name that you host. This can be done with just one single mouse click through our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel via which all web hosting accounts are administered, so you won’t need any technical or coding knowledge. You will be able to manage sites built with both old and new PHP scripts without problems, so if you’d like to leave your present hosting supplier and move over to us, you can rest assured that all the websites that you’ve created through the years will continue to run perfectly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

It is our unswerving opinion that years spent creating a website should not go down the drain, which suggests that if you buy a semi-dedicated server from us, you’ll be able to run any script, no matter if it’s old or new. In contrast with many web hosts, we support several different PHP versions on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform – 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. Not only will you be able to activate the version that you need via your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the option to pick a different version for each individual website. The latter can be accomplished simply by putting an .htaccess file in the given site’s root directory. You can change the version both for a single website and for the entire account and the change will be applied in only several minutes. With our hosting services, you can rest assured that you won’t ever stumble upon any site compatibility challenges.
