PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, otherwise referred to as PHP, is a popular multi-paradigm programming language, which is used to create dynamic websites with interactive elements like forums, online learning portals or social networking sites. In stark contrast to static HTML sites, a PHP-driven site can display different web content to each user under the exact same page URL. As PHP-based web applications can be managed through a Control Panel tool, which you can log onto from any browser, you will not need any programming know-how or practical experience in order to administer a PHP website. The fact that 100s of millions of websites worldwide are created using PHP is indicative of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You should only make sure that the web server where you host your site supports the very same version of PHP as the one that you used whilst creating the website.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Website Hosting

We’ve made the decision not to prevent our current and prospective customers from choosing the PHP version that will be used by their websites, so if you buy a cloud website hosting plan from our company, you’ll be able to select between versions 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5, not only for the account as a whole, but also for each individual domain name hosted by you. This can be done with only one mouse click from our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all hosting accounts are administered, so you will not have to possess any technical or coding capabilities. You’ll be able to run sites built with both old and new PHP-based scripts without having to cope with any obstacles, so if you wish to drop your present hosting supplier and migrate over to us, you can rest assured that all the websites that you have developed over the years will continue to run faultlessly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a site created using an older PHP version and you’ve dedicated time and energy to setting it up, repairing safety gaps and adding web content, you will need a web hosting service that can support it, since nearly all web hosting companies today support only the most recently launched version of PHP and abandon the earlier versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to allow you to select the exact version that your very own sites need. Our semi-dedicated service support PHP 4 and multiple versions of PHP 5, which means that you will be able to use both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any manual modifications or wasting time and efforts attempting to make your sites compatible with the web hosting environment. You can change the version through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will apply to the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you will also have the ability to specify a different version for each individual website hosted in your account by means of an .htaccess file.
