PHP, which is an abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most popular server-side programming languages available out there. Any site or Internet application created with PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language absolutely universal and it’s little surprising that there are several million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it allows you to build a dynamic site with heaps of features. A PHP-based community web portal, for instance, will display different web content to each visitor irrespective of the fact that the URL will be the same. On the other hand, HTML websites are static and the page content itself can be updated only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the version that was used while developing a particular website must be installed on the server in order for the site to work properly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Web Hosting

With our shared web hosting, you will be able to select which PHP version will be enabled for your web hosting account, since different versions are enabled on our servers. With just one click, you will be able to switch between PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4 and every time a new version is introduced in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older ones. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you’ve created throughout the years. In stark contrast to lots of other companies, we will not compel you to update such websites, because a script may be outdated, but this does not mean that it is insecure since you may have tweaked its code to repair security loopholes. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to select a different PHP version for each single site hosted in your web hosting account.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

We are unswerving in our belief that several years spent building a website shouldn’t go down the drain, which means that in case you get a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to run any script, be it new or old. In contrast with lots of providers, we support several different PHP versions on our advanced cloud hosting platform – 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. You will not only have the ability to enable the required version from your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the opportunity to set a different PHP version for each website. The latter can be done simply by uploading an .htaccess file to the root directory of the given site. You can change the version not only for a single website, but also for the account itself and the change will be applied in no more than a couple of minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be sure that you won’t ever face any website incompatibility predicaments.
