PHP, which is a recursive initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most widely used open-source server-side programming languages that are available out there. Any website or app created in PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is activated, which renders the language absolutely universal and it’s not a big surprise that there are actually a few million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it allows you to develop a dynamic serving website with a plethora of different options. A PHP-based community site, for example, will show unique web content to each user despite the fact that the page URL will stay the same. On the other hand, HTML sites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while building a given website must be present on the web server in order for the site to behave properly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Website Hosting

We have made a conscious decision not to prevent our current and future clients from choosing what PHP version will be used by their websites, which suggests that in case you get a shared website hosting plan from our company, you will be able to pick between versions 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4, not only for the web hosting account in general, but also for each single domain name hosted by you. This can be done with only one single click of the mouse through our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all accounts are administered, which is the reason why you will not need to have any technical or programming know-how. You’ll be able to manage sites based on both old and new scripts without having to overcome any obstructions, so if you wish to change your present provider and switch over to us, you can be certain that all the sites that you have built through the years will continue to work perfectly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

We are of the unwavering opinion that years spent setting up a site shouldn’t go down the tube, which implies that if you purchase a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to use any script, be it new or old. In contrast with many hosting suppliers, we support a number of different PHP versions on our advanced cloud web hosting platform – 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. Not only will you have the ability to enable the needed version through your Hepsia Control Panel, but you will also have the opportunity to select a different version for each website. This can be accomplished simply by inserting an .htaccess file into the root directory of the given site. You can change the version either for a single site or for the entire account and the change will be applied in no more than a few minutes. With our web hosting services, you can rest assured that you won’t ever chance upon any site compatibility predicaments.
