PHP, which is an acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most popular web development languages that are available out there. Any website or web-based app built with PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is activated, which renders the language truly universal and it isn’t really a huge surprise that there are several million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it allows you to set up an interactive site with a lot of different options. A PHP-based community web portal, for example, will show unique content to each user although the page URL will be the same. In contrast, HTML sites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used whilst building a certain website must be installed on the server so that the site can run flawlessly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Hosting

We have decided not to prevent our current and future clients from selecting what PHP version their websites will be using, which means that in case you purchase a shared hosting package from our company, you will be able to pick between versions 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4, not only for the web hosting account as a whole, but also for each individual domain name that you host. This can be accomplished with just one click of the mouse from our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all shared hosting accounts are administered, which is why you will not need to possess any technical or coding know-how. You will be able to manage sites built with both old and new PHP scripts without having to cope with any predicaments, so if you’d like to abandon your current web hosting vendor and migrate over to us, you can rest assured that all the sites that you have set up over the years will continue to run correctly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

It is our unwavering belief that years spent developing a website should not go down the tube, which implies that in case you buy a semi-dedicated server from our company, you will be able to run any script, regardless of whether it’s new or old. In contrast with a lot of web hosting vendors, we support several different versions of PHP on our ground-breaking cloud platform – 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. You will not only have the ability to enable the needed version via your Hepsia Control Panel, but you will also have the possibility to set a different PHP version for each website. The latter can be done simply by inserting an .htaccess file in the given site’s root folder. You can change the version either for a single site or for the account itself and the new settings will take effect in only several minutes. With our hosting services, you can rest assured that you won’t ever have any site incompatibility issues.
