PHP, which is a recursive abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most popular multi-paradigm programming languages that are available out there. Any site or app based on PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language truly universal and it isn’t a surprise that there are several million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it permits you to develop a dynamic website with an abundance of different features. A PHP-based social network, for example, will serve different web content to each visitor even though the page URL will stay unchanged. In comparison, HTML-based sites 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 version that was used whilst developing a given website must be configured on the server in order for the site to behave correctly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Hosting

We’ve made the decision not to restrict our present and prospective customers from picking what PHP version their sites will use, which suggests that in case you order a cloud hosting plan from our company, you’ll be able to choose between versions 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4, not only for the hosting account in general, but also for each single domain name that you host. This can be done with just one single mouse click from our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared accounts are administered, which is the reason why you won’t need to possess any coding or technical skills. You’ll be able to manage sites built with both new and old PHP-based scripts without having to cope with any impediments, so if you want to drop your current web hosting provider and move over to us, you can be certain that all the websites that you’ve developed through the years will continue to work perfectly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

We’re unswerving in our opinion that years spent creating a site shouldn’t go down the tubes, so if you purchase a semi-dedicated server from us, you’ll be able to run any script, regardless of whether it’s old or new. In stark contrast with a lot of hosting vendors, we support several different versions of PHP on our advanced cloud platform – 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. You will not only be able to enable the required version from your Hepsia Control Panel, but you will also have the opportunity to pick a different PHP version for each website. The latter can be accomplished simply by placing an .htaccess file inside the given site’s root directory. You can change the current version either for a single site or for the account itself and the new settings will be applied in less than a few minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be sure that you won’t ever confront any site incompatibility problems.
