PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, usually called PHP, is a popular open-source server-side coding language, which is used to build dynamic sites with interactive components like discussion forums, online teaching portals or social networking websites. In comparison with static HTML-based sites, a PHP-driven site can show unique web content to each visitor under the very same URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based web-based applications can be managed through a Control Panel tool, which you can log in to from any web browser, you will not need to possess any web design expertise or practical experience to maintain a PHP-powered site. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites worldwide are created with PHP is an indication of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only ought to make sure that the server where you host your site supports the same exact PHP version as the one that you used whilst developing the site.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Hosting

In case you order a cloud hosting plan from us, you will never need to ask yourself whether your sites are compatible with the hosting platform, as different PHP versions are supported on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to choose PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 or 5.5 with only one single mouse click and in case you would like to change the version, the new settings will be applied instantaneously. Thus, years of work on sites created with an older version will not be lost. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, which means that you can use newer and older scripts at the same time. Most web hosting companies on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two PHP versions. In stark contrast to them, we maintain that you should be the one to choose the version that your own sites will use.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a site built on a previous PHP version and you have contributed time and energy to developing it, filling safety gaps and posting web page content, you’ll need to find a hosting service that can support it, as almost all hosting suppliers today support only the most recent PHP version and drop the older ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to permit you to choose the version that your sites need. Our semi-dedicated hosting plans support multiple versions of PHP 5 and PHP 4, which suggests that you will be able to use both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any manual tweaks or wasting time and effort striving to make your websites compatible with the web hosting environment. The version can be changed through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will affect the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you’ll also have the ability to pick a different version for each individual website hosted in your account by using an .htaccess file.
