PHP, which is a recursive backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most widely used dynamic programming languages that are available out there. Any site or Internet app created using PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language truly universal and it’s by no means surprising that there are actually a few million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it allows you to develop a dynamic website with plenty of features. A PHP-based social network, for example, will serve unique web content to each visitor despite the fact that the page URL will stay unchanged. By contrast, HTML websites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the one that was used while building a specific website must be enabled on the server in order for the site to run flawlessly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which suggests that your websites will work correctly even if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We accept the fact that an old website does not inevitably mean an insecure one as you may have done plenty of source code mods. That is the reason why we support PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and you can decide which one will be active for your web hosting account. The version can be changed with just one click of the mouse through your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will take effect right away. In case you’d like to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each domain name of yours at the same time.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We are unfaltering in our conviction that years spent building a site shouldn’t be in vain, which suggests that if you purchase a semi-dedicated server from our company, you will be able to run any script, irrespective of whether it’s old or new. In stark contrast to lots of companies, we support several different PHP versions on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform – 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. Not only will you have the ability to enable the version that you need via your Hepsia Control Panel, but you will also have the opportunity to pick a different PHP version for each single website. The latter can be accomplished merely by placing an .htaccess file within the root folder of the given site. You can change the current version both for a single site and for the entire account and the update will take effect in no more than a couple of minutes. With our hosting services, you can be sure that you will never face any website incompatibility obstacles.
