PHP, which is an acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most popular scripting languages that are available out there. Any site or web app built on PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which renders the language absolutely universal and it’s not really that unusual that there are a few million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it enables you to set up a dynamic website with loads of options. A PHP-based community website, for instance, will show unique content to each visitor even though the page URL will stay unchanged. In contrast, HTML sites are static and the content on the pages can be updated only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst building a certain website must be configured on the server in order for the site to work flawlessly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Website Hosting

With our Linux cloud website hosting service, you’ll be able to select which PHP version will be enabled for your shared hosting account, as several versions are supported on our servers. With only one mouse click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and each time a new version is unveiled in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you have set up over the years. Unlike a lot of other companies, we won’t force you to update such sites, because a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t mean that it is insecure as you may have performed modifications to its source code to fill security holes. For your convenience, you will even be able to choose a different version of PHP for each single website hosted in your hosting account.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

It’s our steadfast conviction that several years spent building a website should not be wasted, which suggests that in case you get a semi-dedicated server from our company, you will be able to use any script, irrespective of whether it is old or new. In stark contrast with a lot of web hosting suppliers, we support several different versions of PHP on our innovative cloud platform – 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. You will not only have the ability to activate the required version via your Hepsia Control Panel, but you will also have the option to select a different version for each single website. This can be done merely by uploading an .htaccess file to the root folder of the given site. You can change the current version either for a single site or for the whole account and the update will take effect in only several minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be sure that you won’t ever chance upon any site incompatibility difficulties.
