PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, typically called PHP, is a popular open-source server-side programming language, which is used to create dynamic websites with interactive elements such as bulletin boards, e-learning sites or social networking websites. In comparison with static HTML sites, a PHP-driven site can serve unique content to each visitor under the same page URL. Given the fact that PHP-based web applications can be managed through one Control Panel, which you can log in to from any web browser, you won’t need any coding expertise or past experience whatsoever in order to maintain a PHP-powered site. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites all over the globe are created with PHP is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You only need to check whether the server on which your website is hosted supports the exact same PHP version as the one that you used while building the website.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Hosting

In case you purchase a cloud hosting plan from our company, you won’t ever need to ponder over whether or not your websites are compatible with the web hosting environment, since several versions of PHP are enabled on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to choose PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 or 4 with just one single mouse click and in case you wish to change the current version, the update will take effect instantly. In this way, several years of work on sites created with an older version of PHP won’t be wasted. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different PHP version for each domain name hosted in your account, which implies that you can use newer and older scripts at the same time. Most web hosting providers on the marketplace support one, sometimes two PHP versions. In contrast with them, we feel that you should be the one to select the version that your own websites will use.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you’ve got a site built with an earlier version of PHP and you have spent time and energy setting it up, plugging safety breaches and appending content, you will need to find a hosting service that can support it, since the vast majority of hosting suppliers nowadays offer only the most recently released PHP version and give up the older versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to permit you to select the version that your own sites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4 and multiple versions of PHP 5, which suggests that you will be able to use both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any manual settings or frittering away time and energy trying to make your websites compatible with the web hosting environment. You can change the current version through the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will apply to the entire account, but you will also be able to select a different PHP version for each individual site hosted in your account by means of an .htaccess configuration file.
