PHP, which is a recursive abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous interpreted programming languages out there. Any site or app built on PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is activated, which makes the language truly universal and it’s scarcely a surprise that there are actually a few million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it allows you to create an interactive site with plenty of different options. A PHP-based social network, for example, will show unique content to each user although the URL will remain unchanged. In contrast, HTML websites are static and the content on the pages can be updated only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while setting up a specific website must be present on the web server in order for the site to work correctly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Hosting

We’ve made a decision not to prevent our present and prospective customers from picking what PHP version their sites will be using, so in case you order a cloud hosting plan from us, you’ll be able to choose between versions 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4, not only for the hosting account itself, but also for each single domain name that you host. This can be done with only one single click of the mouse from our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all web hosting accounts are managed, which is why you will not need to have any coding or technical knowledge. You will be able to host sites built with both old and new scripts without any hassle, so if you wish to drop your present web host and move over to us, you can be certain that all the sites that you’ve developed through the years will continue to run properly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

We are strong in our opinion that several years spent building a website should not go down the drain, which goes to say that if you order a semi-dedicated server from our company, you’ll be able to run any script, be it new or old. In stark contrast to a lot of hosting providers, we support a number of different PHP versions on our revolutionary cloud platform – 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Not only will you have the ability to enable the version that you need through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you will also have the option to pick a different PHP version for each single website. This can be accomplished merely by placing an .htaccess file into the root folder of the given site. You can change the version both for a single site and for the entire account and the update will take effect in just a couple of minutes. With our hosting services, you can be sure that you will never face any website compatibility impediments.
