PHP, which is an initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most commonly used programming languages available out there. Any site or app built on PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language really universal and it’s little wonder that there are a couple of million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it allows you to set up a dynamic serving site with lots of different options. A PHP-based community web portal, for instance, will display unique web content to each user in spite of the fact that the URL won’t change. In comparison, HTML-based sites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used while setting up a certain website must be available on the web server in order for the site to run correctly.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Web Hosting
We’ve made a decision not to prevent our present and future customers from selecting what PHP version will be used by their sites, which means that in case you get a shared web hosting
plan from us, you’ll be able to pick between versions 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4, not only for the hosting account in general, but also for each individual domain that you host. This can be done with just one single click of the mouse from our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all shared hosting accounts are administered, which is why you won’t need to have any technical or programming expertise. You will be able to host sites built with both new and old PHP-based scripts without having to overcome any difficulties, so if you want to drop your current web hosting vendor and migrate over to us, you can rest assured that all the websites that you’ve set up over the years will continue to run faultlessly.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
It is our strong opinion that several years spent building a website shouldn’t be lost, which means that in case you order a semi-dedicated server
from our company, you’ll be able to run any script, no matter if it is old or new. In stark contrast with a lot of web hosts, we support several different versions of PHP on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform – 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Not only will you have the ability to activate the version that you need through your Hepsia Control Panel, but you will also have the possibility to set a different PHP version for each website. This can be done merely by putting an .htaccess file within the given site’s root folder. You can change the version either for a single site or for the whole account and the update will be applied in just several minutes. With our web hosting services, you can rest assured that you will never experience any website incompatibility impediments.
