PHP, which is an abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most popular general-purpose server-side scripting languages available out there. Any website or Internet app created in PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is activated, which makes the language absolutely universal and it’s little surprise that there are a couple of million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it enables you to develop a dynamic site with an abundance of features. A PHP-based community web portal, for example, will display different web content to each user despite the fact that the page URL will stay the same. In contrast, HTML sites are static and the page content can be updated only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while building a given website must be present on the server in order for the site to behave faultlessly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Website Hosting

Our website hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which implies that your websites will work properly even if your PHP scripts are out of date. We realize that an old website doesn’t invariably imply an insecure one as you may have carried out plenty of code mods. That’s the reason why we support PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and you can pick which version will be enabled for your shared hosting account. The version can be changed with only one click inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will be applied momentarily. If you want to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domains at the same time.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

It’s our belief that years spent building a site shouldn’t go down the tube, which means that if you purchase a semi-dedicated server from us, you’ll be able to run any script, regardless of whether it is old or new. In stark contrast to many hosting suppliers, we support a number of different PHP versions on our innovative cloud hosting platform – 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. Not only will you have the ability to enable the version that you need via your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the option to specify a different version for each single website. The latter can be done merely by inserting an .htaccess file in the given site’s root folder. You can change the version either for a single website or for the account itself and the change will take effect in less than a couple of minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be certain that you won’t ever chance upon any site incompatibility impediments.
