PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, commonly referred to as PHP, is a popular imperative programming language, which can be used to build dynamic websites with interactive elements like discussion boards, school websites or community web portals. In contrast with static HTML sites, a PHP-powered website can display different web content to each user under the exact same page URL. Given the fact that PHP-based apps can be managed via one single Control Panel, which you can access from any web browser, you will not need any programming capabilities or practical experience whatsoever to maintain a PHP-driven website. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the globe are built with PHP is indicative of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only ought to make sure that the web server where you host your site supports the very same version of PHP as the one that you used whilst creating the site.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Hosting

With our cloud hosting, you will be able to pick the PHP version that will be active for your shared hosting account, as several versions are available on our servers. With only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and anytime a new version is introduced 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 websites that you have developed through the years. In contrast with many other hosting suppliers, we won’t force you to update such sites, as a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s insecure since you may have edited its code to fix security breaches. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to set a different PHP version for each site hosted in your account.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a site based on a previous PHP version and you have donated time and efforts into developing it, plugging safety gaps and embedding page content, you’ll need a hosting service that can support it, since almost all web hosting companies nowadays offer only the most recently released PHP version and abandon the previous versions. We, however, have decided to allow you to pick the version that your own websites require. Our semi-dedicated servers support multiple versions of PHP 5 as well as PHP 4, which goes to say that you will be able to use both newer and older scripts without losing any manual modifications or wasting time and effort attempting to make your sites compatible with the web hosting platform. The current version can be changed through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will affect the whole semi-dedicated server account, but you will also have the ability to specify a different PHP version for each individual site hosted in your account by using an .htaccess file.
