PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also called PHP, is a popular web programming language, which is used to set up dynamic websites with interactive features such as forums, e-teaching portals or community web portals. Unlike static HTML websites, a PHP-powered site can show unique content to each visitor under the same URL. Because of the fact that PHP-based Internet apps can be managed through a single Control Panel, which you can log on to using any online browser, you won’t need to possess any coding skills or prior experience whatsoever in order to run a PHP site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the world are built with PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only have to verify whether or not the server on which your website is hosted supports the same exact version of PHP as the one that you used while building the site.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Website Hosting

If you buy a website hosting package from our company, you will never need to speculate if your sites are compatible with the hosting environment, since we offer several PHP versions for your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to select PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 or 4 with only one single click of the mouse and if you need to change the current version, the update will be applied momentarily. Thus, several years of work on websites built with an older PHP version won’t go down the tubes. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which means that you can run newer and older scripts at the same time. Most web hosting companies on the marketplace offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. Unlike them, we reckon that you should be the one to select the version that your own sites will use.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

It’s our steadfast conviction that years spent building a site should not be wasted, which implies that in case you purchase a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to run any script, regardless of whether it is new or old. In contrast to many web hosting vendors, we support several different PHP versions on our revolutionary cloud platform – 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. Not only will you be able to activate the needed version through your Hepsia Control Panel, but you will also have the possibility to specify a different PHP version for each website. The latter can be accomplished merely by placing an .htaccess file inside the root directory of the given site. You can change the version both for a single website and for the whole account and the change will be applied in just a couple of minutes. With our hosting services, you can rest assured that you will never experience any site compatibility obstacles.
