PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also known as PHP, is a famous curly-brace programming language, which can be used to create dynamic sites with interactive features like discussion forums, online teaching websites or community web portals. In stark contrast with static HTML-based sites, a PHP-driven website can show unique content to each visitor under the exact same URL. As PHP-based apps can be managed through a Control Panel, which you can log onto from any Internet browser, you won’t need to possess any programming knowledge or prior experience in order to maintain a PHP-powered website. The fact that 100s of millions of sites all over the globe are built with PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You must only check whether or not the server where you host your site supports the same PHP version as the one that you used while developing the site.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Website Hosting

If you purchase a cloud website hosting plan from us, you will never need to ask yourself whether or not your websites are compatible with the web hosting platform, since different PHP versions are installed on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to pick PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 or 5.5 with just one single click of the mouse and in case you would like to change the version, the new settings will take effect straight away. Thus, several years of work on websites created with an older PHP version will not be wasted. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which suggests that you can use newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most hosting providers on the market support one, sometimes two PHP versions. In stark contrast to them, we strongly hold that you should be the one to select the version that your own sites will be using.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a site built using an older PHP version and you have put time and efforts towards developing it, fixing safety holes and embedding web page content, you’ll need to find a web hosting service that can support it, since almost all web hosting vendors today offer support only for the most recently launched version of PHP and give up the previous ones. We, however, have decided to allow you to select the exact version that your websites need. Our semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4 and multiple versions of PHP 5, which suggests that you’ll be able to use both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any customizations or frittering away time attempting to make your websites compatible with the hosting environment. You can change the current version via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will apply to the whole semi-dedicated account, but you’ll also have the ability to set a different version for each individual site hosted in your account using an .htaccess file.
