PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also called PHP, is a famous open-source server-side coding language, which can be used to develop dynamic sites with interactive elements like discussion boards, e-learning portals or community web portals. Unlike static HTML-based websites, a PHP website can serve unique web content to each visitor under the same page URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based apps can be managed via a Control Panel, which you can sign onto from any web browser, you won’t have to possess any computer programming capabilities or practical experience to administer a PHP-driven website. The fact that 100s of millions of sites all over the world are PHP-based is indicative of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You only have to verify if the server where you host your website supports the same PHP version as the one that you used whilst setting up the website.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Hosting

With our cloud hosting, you’ll be able to pick the PHP version that will be enabled for your hosting account, as multiple versions are supported on our servers. With as little as 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 older versions. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you’ve built over the years. In contrast with a lot of other providers, we will not compel you to update such sites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it is vulnerable as you may have implemented modifications to its source code to repair safety breaches. For your convenience’s sake, you will even be able to pick a different PHP version for each individual site hosted in your shared web hosting account.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you’ve got a website built using an older version of PHP and you’ve dedicated time and effort toward setting it up, filling security gaps and adding content, you’ll need a hosting service that can support it, as almost all web hosting suppliers these days support only the most recent PHP version and drop the earlier versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to permit you to choose the exact version that your very own sites need. Our semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4 and multiple versions of PHP 5, which goes to say that you will be able to use both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any custom modifications or frittering away time and efforts striving to make your websites compatible with the web hosting platform. You can change the current version through the Hepsia Control Panel and such a change will affect the entire account, but you’ll also be able to pick a different PHP version for each individual website that you host in your account using an .htaccess config file.
